Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking.
In NJ, child abuse
and neglect cases can be BOTH criminal and civil. Pursuant to NJSA 9:6-8.22 and 8.24, the Family Part of Superior Court in each county has jurisdiction of all non-criminal proceedings
involving cases alleging child abuse and neglect.
Your husband's case thus appears to be civil and should have an “FN” (Family Neglect) docket number, not a criminal case number. Unfortunately, there is no process in NJ to "expunge" a civil case and all he can do is file a petition with the family court for rehabilitation from the charge, which is where he provides evidence in the family court in NJ that heard the case that the circumstances that led to the case against him no longer exist and ask the court to "seal" the record and issue an order that he has been rehabilitated and is no longer any danger to children or elderly or others. I am afraid that is all that can be done with a civil family neglect case.
