It is possible to expunge some past criminal convictions in New Jersey, but the details will make a difference.
In order to expunge an eligible criminal conviction, you first must meet all the terms of your sentence, including serving all jail time, parole, and probation, and paying all fines, fees, and restitution costs.
You’ll also have to go through a waiting period based on the severity of the crime.
Felonies, if they are eligible for expungement, require you to wait 10 years from the date of completing all terms of your sentence. For misdemeanor convictions, you’ll have to wait five years.
Disorderly persons offenses can be expunged in as little as six months.
If you were convicted of a crime in the past and are ready to move on, expungement may be an option.
