Expungement Lawyer Trenton
An Expungement is when the record of a conviction or arrest is sealed and removed from one’s personal record. There are different requirements and prerequisites for an Expungement depending on where you live and what type of crime you were arrested for/convicted of. If you have a criminal record it can be difficult to get a job, a loan, a mortgage, and other things that require a background check. If you have your record expunged, it will not show up on background checks. If a potential employer asks “Have you ever been arrested” on an application you can legally say “No” if your record has been expunged.
Depending on the crime you will need to wait a certain amount of time, complete certain programs/classes, have no additional arrests, and complete all terms of your conviction. The crime that you are seeking expungement for must also be considered not too serious. You are not able to seek expungement for convictions of:
- Aggravated assault/battery
- Assault of an elderly person
- Domestic Violence
- Drug Trafficking
…and other serious offenses
