Totowa NJ PTI and Conditional Discharge Expungement Lawyer
Expungement Attorney in Passaic County, New Jersey
If you were arrested and charged with a felony or disorderly persons or petty disorderly persons offense, the arrest and original charge will continue to appear on your criminal record. This is true even if you successfully completed a program of supervisory treatment (also referred to as diversionary program ). These programs include the Pre-Trial Intervention ( PTI ) Program at the Superior Court level, and the Conditional Discharge Program at the Municipal Court level.
To avoid having to explain the circumstances of your arrest and program of supervisory treatment to a potential employer or educational institution to which you are seeking admission, you can hire a lawyer to file an Expungement Petition on your behalf and move to have the incident removed from your record entirely.
