EXPUNGEMENT

A past criminal mistake can derail your future and your ability to a get a job. Lawful Services understands the importance of a clean record and will help you to achieve that goal.


Contrary to some popular beliefs, criminal arrest records are not automatically "sealed" after the passage of a period of time. Arrest records and criminal court records remains open to public view indefinitely unless it is expunged. New Jersey, however, allows its residents to obtain an expungement to seal away arrest records from the view of the public. This opportunity allows citizens to start their lives without past mistakes hindering their ability to excel in their career choices and other personal endeavors.


WHAT IS AN EXPUNGEMENT?


An expungement is the extraction of records evidencing an arrest, detention, indictment, charge, complaint, trial, or conviction of a criminal offense.  If an expungement is granted, the records are placed in an isolated file which is segregated from records which are available to the public. Therefore, employers and almost anyone who seek discovery of your criminal record(s) will not be able to retrieve it once it is expunged.   


WHY SHOULD YOU FILE FOR AN EXPUNGEMENT?


Unfortunately, your record remains very easy to access via the internet, and therefore, your past actions follows you throughout your entire life. Your past criminal history may impact your ability to obtain better employment, and therefore prevents you from living the American Dream you deserve. Therefore, if you qualify to have your criminal record sealed or expunged, it is in your best interest to do so.


LAWFUL SERVICES WANTS TO HELP YOU!


The goal of Lawful Services is to complete the expungement process of your criminal record as quickly and painlessly as possible. The entire process takes approximately three to six months depending on the county in which your petition is filed.
