No felonies in NJ. But if 4th degree crime can get expunged. When was it? See an expungement lawyer. Should cost about 1,500 - 2,000 to get done correctly. A lot of paperwork involved. Good luck

In New Jersey, if you do not have more than one felony and misdemeanor conviction of your criminal record and if you meet the waiting period requirement (5 years - early pathway or 10 years), no pending charges and meet all other eligibility requirements, you may be able to expunge your record. You should consult with an expungement attorney to review your case and prepare your paperwork properly.

An indictable crime (called felonies in other States) can be expunged 5 years after the sentence ends with difficulty or 10 year after easily. Pardons are very rare, less chance of success and costs much more to attempt.
There are numerous eligibility requirements. I'd have to hear about your entire case history, including dates, etc., to really tell you when and if you can expunge.
So in New Jersey there are a lot of factors that qualify you for expungement. So I would definitely suggest you get in touch with any of the fine attorneys who responded to you and schedule a consultation. During this consultation the attorney will be able to tell you specifically whether your case is qualified for expungement. In New Jersey you can get a conviction expunged after 5 years, (this will take a little more time effort and money) or after ten years in a much swifter process. Either way to answer your question it is possible but you would definitely need to get in touch with an attorney to know for sure.
