A: The law of New Jersey will determine your expunction eligibility, even if you are currently in Texas. Attorneys are licensed per state, and this Justia website shows the questions to attorneys by state so it is likely that only Texas attorneys will see your question because the location is marked "Irving, TX."

You should probably re-post this question with the location changed to the name of the city in New Jersey where the arrest actually happened (or the name of the largest nearby big city.) That way, the website will display the question to attorneys who are familiar with the laws of New Jersey.
