Those certainly may affect your ability to obtain a license.
In New Jersey, an individual who has been previously denied a professional license because of a conviction may apply for a "Certificate of Rehabilitation" (COR). COR is meant to verify that the holder has achieved a degree of rehabilitation, indicating their licensing would not be incompatible with the welfare of society. A COR prohibits a licensing authority from disqualifying or discriminating against the applicant. In effect it creates a "presumption of rehabilitation" that must be given consideration by the licensing board. CORs may be temporary, subject to review and renewal, and may be revoked.
If granted a COR, you may not be denied a license solely on account of having been convicted, or by reason of a lack of good moral character. However, you can still be denied a license if the licensing board finds: (a) there is a direct relationship between the previous conviction and the license being sought or (b) if the board establishes that issuing a license would involve an unreasonable risk to property, individual safety or welfare or risk to the general public.
At least two years must pass before reapplication under a COR.
