Expungement

Everyone in life makes mistakes. Some mistakes unfortunately are more serious in nature than others. Some mistakes carry with them arrest records and some sadly have convictions as well. If you find yourself in a situation where you have an arrest and/or conviction on your record, that mistake need not follow you through the rest of your life. The New Jersey expungement process can be a life-saving tool for your career and your overall well-being.

A successful expungement of an arrest and/or conviction in New Jersey helps to remove the offense from your personal history. For most job applications in New Jersey, an expungement means you do not have to report the past transgressions of which the expungement covers; that alone can be reason enough to enlist the help of R.C. Shea & Associates to help your cause.

Expungements in New Jersey can take anywhere from several weeks to several months, from start to finish. The expungement process entails quite a bit of legal maneuvers and legal paperwork to be completed and filed accordingly. In addition, not all counties in New Jersey follow the same exact process, which is why although legal representation is not required for an expungement, having skilled experienced counsel during this process will no doubt help the process to its conclusion with all due speed.

Finally, not all individuals are eligible for an expungement. Give us a call today or stop by our Toms River office, and one of our associates will be happy to setup an appointment to sit down with you to go over the expungement process with you in detail.
