One of the biggest obstacles to financial success and freedom can be a criminal record. It can prevent you from getting a better paying job, a security clearance, or a gun permit. Many times this record contains convictions of minor, non-violent crimes that were committed many years ago and represent a very different time in your life.

But that doesn’t have to be the case! New Jersey provides a mechanism and procedure for wiping out this record and allowing you to move onward and upward with your life. So in this episode of the podcast I discuss this process and how you can use it to improve your situation and your chances of financial freedom.

In this episode, you will learn about:

  • Wiping out an arrest for that charge that was dismissed or where you were found not guilty
  • Getting rid of a minor local ordinance violation, like that public drunkenness charge from college
  • Making that shoplifting, simple assault, or other non-violent minor crime go away
  • What charges can't be expunged
