Welcome to LSNJ’s Clearing Your Record Online toolkit. Here, you can find out whether you are eligible to expunge your criminal record, create forms you will need to submit to the court, access instructional videos, and find other resources to help you with expungement.
On July 1, 2021 the New Jersey Supreme Court announced procedures for automatic vacation, dismissal, and expungement of certain marijuana- and hashish-related cases. If you have a question about an indictable, disorderly persons, or juvenile case involving marijuana or hashish, contact the LSNJLAWSM Hotline at 1-888-576-5529 or www.lsnjlawhotline.org.
Please be aware that, as of 3/27/20, you may still file your expungement petition through the mail, but the court is operating on a limited mail intake schedule and there may be delays in scheduling. Your patience is appreciated.
Electronic Filing of Expungements is now available through the eCourts system
Before you start
Once you are ready, you can click on the link below to answer some questions about your record. It should take between 10 and 20 minutes, depending on your record. When you are finished, we will let you know if your record is expungeable, and whether there is a waiting period before you can apply.
If you are low-income and need additional help, you can apply online for help from Legal Services of New Jersey at www.lsnjlawhotline.org.
