A conviction for a disorderly persons offense or felony is not the end of your life and your career. Changes in New Jersey Expungement Law enacted two years ago have made the time period to possibly get an expungement shorter than ever before.
However, just because the new law was enacted does not guarantee that an “early pathway” exception will be automatically granted.
The county prosecutor’s office still can decide to reject an application and a brief and oral argument may be necessary. Moreover, if your expungement application is filled out incorrectly it will be rejected and there is no appeal to the denial of the expungement application.
