What is expungement?
Expungement in New Jersey means that all records pertaining to your arrest and / or conviction will be removed and isolated, according to New Jersey Statute 2C:52-1(a). It does not mean that the crime will be eliminated or the record destroyed. If a future employer, landlord, or other similar individual runs a background check on you, however, no expunged crimes will be visible. Law enforcement agents, immigration officers, and other government authorities will still be able to view the record.
