New Jersey Expungement Lawyers
A thorough background check is routine these days whether you are applying for a job, housing, a professional license, trying to get into college, or even volunteering to coach your child’s soccer team. More often than not, you will be asked to disclose, in writing, if you have ever been arrested or convicted of a criminal offense. While it is tempting (and not uncommon) for people to gloss over their criminal records, in today’s world in which criminal records are available instantaneously, it is not a risk worth taking. In fact, lying on an application can be cause for dismissal, making your situation even worse.
