An expungement is the removal and isolation of all records on file within any court, detention or correctional facility, law enforcement, criminal justice agency or juvenile justice agency concerning a person's apprehension, arrest, detention, trial or disposition of an offense within the criminal or juvenile justice system. Unless otherwise provided by law, if an order for expungement is granted, the adult arrest, the record of law enforcement taking you into custody as a juvenile, conviction, adjudication of delinquency, disposition and any related proceedings are considered not to have occurred.

Waiting limits vary based on the type of conviction involved (these times do not necessarily begin to run as of the date of conviction, but rather as of the last date in the case, i.e., probation end date, date fines paid, release from incarceration, release from Parole, etc.):

- For Indictable Convictions - (Superior Court matters) - Generally 10 years, but only 5 years if the requirements of the 2010 changes to the Expungement law are met.
- For Disorderly Persons/Disordelry Persons Convictions - 5 years.
- For Municipal Ordinance Convictions - 2 years.
- For PTI/Conditional Discharge - 6 months from completion/dismissal.
- For Dismissals- no waiting period. Eligible when dismissed.
