No. EasyExpunctions is an online document provider. We are not your attorney and do not represent you, however we want to see you succeed and are always available to offer support and encouragement if you are nervous about your hearing or have questions about where to go. Please contact us whenever you have any concerns.

EasyExpunctions uses proprietary technology we have developed that analyzes statutes, public records and information provided by our customers to generate documents. We do not provide legal advice so you should always rely on the information you receive from a licensed attorney if it conflicts with any information we provide. Sometimes our system flags a potential issue, even when a customer is eligible to have their record cleared under the law, and when this happens we will not sell a customer documents. Because we offer industry leading consumer protections, including a comprehensive Money Back Guarantee that covers any amount you pay to us or a court in filing fees, we only provide documents to individuals we have a high degree of confidence will be successful if they file the documents without the assistance of an attorney.

Immediately contact an attorney to discuss your options. Most rulings made by a court can be appealed but individuals must act quickly to preserve their right to appeal. There are also strict time limits individuals have to respond when post trial motions or appeals are filed so the sooner you contact an attorney the better. Unfortunately, at this time EasyExpunctions does not sell any documents for individuals to use in filing post trial motions or when appealing an adverse ruling so your best option is to contact an attorney immediately. EasyExpunctions will not be a party to any agreement you enter into with an attorney to represent you. Also make sure to contact customer support and request a full refund under our Money Back Guarantee.

When a judge grants your petition for expungement law enforcement will be ordered to keep your criminal record private, however the record will not be destroyed. You will be able to deny the offense occurred when dealing with the general public, however, there are certain limited circumstances when your expunged record can be used by governmental agencies in the future if you are involved in any criminal proceeding. Additionally, there are some governmental agencies that are exempt from the expungement order, such as the Real Estate Commission and the Department of Insurance, who cannot be compelled by the court to update their records.

If your only conviction consists of a single indictable offense and you have not been convicted of more than two disorderly or petty disorderly offenses you may file a petition for expungement in the county where your conviction occurred. You may also petition to expunge up to two disorderly or petty disorderly offenses. If you have been convicted of two or more indictable offenses in New Jersey or any other state you may not expunge those convictions. In most circumstances you will have to wait 10 years from the time from the time you were convicted, completed probation or were released from jail (whichever is later) before filing your petition. If you commit any disorderly offenses in the interim the court may believe you have not been rehabilitated and deny your petition. In certain circumstances the 10 year waiting period can be reduced to 5 years if the court finds the expungement is in the public interest.

Generally speaking an indictable offense is one that is punishable by six months of jail time or more, even if the judge does not impose a six month sentence if the offense is punishable by a six month or more jail sentence it is considered an indictable offense. A disorderly offense is generally punishable with a jail sentence of less than six months or is a violation of a municipal ordinance. A good rule of thumb is that if your case was heard in Superior Court it was probably an indictable offense while if your case was heard in municipal court it was most likely a disorderly offense or a municipal ordinance violation.
