To file for an expungement of your criminal record, disorderly persons record, or arrest record, a petition must be filed in the Superior Court of New Jersey. The Law Office of Jason T. Komninos can file your expungement on your behalf.
The first step is to gather all the relevant information regarding your arrests and/or convictions. The relevant information can come from various sources such as your court records, State Police background check, etc. The Law Office can provide you with a consultation to review your information or instruct you on how to obtain your records or help you obtain missing information.
Once the relevant information has been gathered, the petition can be filed electronically through the eCourts expungement system. The electronic system is used to notify the relevant parties, allow the prosecutor’s office to review the petition, and provide the judge with a proposed order for expungement.
If the judge grants your expungement order, the electronic system will then notify the relevant parties and instruct them to expunge your records.
It is important to note that unless all the relevant parties are notified during the expungement process, your record could still appear during a background check. Notifying all the relevant parties ensures that your expungement is completed properly. The Law Office can assess your case and determine the relevant parties to include in the expungement petition.
It is highly recommended to hire an expungement lawyer to handle your case. If an expungement petition is missing information or is filed incorrectly, your petition could be denied, or the prosecutor’s office could object to your petition. If the prosecutor’s office objects, the Law Office can argue on your behalf that the expungement should be granted.
If you have an arrest record, disorderly persons record, or criminal record, contact the Law Office of Jason T. Komninos at 201-343-4622 to schedule a consultation.
