New Jersey Laws limit eligibility for expungement. Expungements are generally available for persons who:
New Jersey code, N.J.S.A. 2C:52-9 states that the Court must hear your matter within 35 to 60 days of the date it is filed. Generally, however, the process usually takes a few months from the time you engage our services, but there is no set answer to this question because scheduling depends largely on the Court and its caseload.
It is a very good idea to go through the expungement process, once you are elligible, given your desire to work in retail. You are best served by retaining an attorney skilled in expungment proceedings as you will have a better chance of convincing the court that expungement is appropriate in your case.
I wish you sucess in getting your record expunged.
