In New Jersey, if you were arrested and not convicted, it is possible to have your arrest and case record expunged, thus making it as if you were never arrested for the offense. If you were not convicted and the charges were dismissed or if you completed Pre-Trial Diversion (PTI) or another diversion program and six months have passed since the charges were dismissed, then you may be eligible for an expungement. Once the arrest and case are expunged, the information will no longer be accessible, except in limited circumstances, and it will not show on background checks.
