Statutes relating to expungements are in Chapter 52 of the New Jersy Criminal Code. Statutes relating to searing are not in the New Jersey Criminal Code at all. Rather, they are to be found in Article 2 of Chapter 4A in Title 2A of New Jersey statutes. Article 2 contains New Jersey's Code of Juvenile Justice.
The specific statute in the Code of Juvenile Justice that deals with sealing is N.J.S. 2A:4A-62. To be eligible for sealing, the records must relate to matters for which court activity concluded at least two years ago. The two-year requirment is waived for juveniles about to enter the United States Armed Forces. However, if the juvenile does not in fact enter, the sealing order is nullified.
Other requirements for sealing are that there be no pending criminal or juvenile complaints, and that there were no criminal or disorderly persons convictions in the two-year period preceding the filing of the application, and no other adjudications of deliquency during that period.
