Elizabeth, NJ asked in Criminal Law for New Jersey

Q: Need case number from my 20 year old criminal case in NJ Superior Court.

About 15-20 years ago I had a criminal case in Union County Superior Court. Unable to find any paperwork I had associated with it. Currently I need the case number for a business license application. What would be a quick way to obtain any information about the case? I filed a Jeds request in January for a digital copy of any case with my name in that time period. I have not heard anything back, and can't even see the request anymore when I log into Jeds. Any advice?

A: Best to go yourself to the court to the records department and ask them. Lots of things in the law are easier done at the court.

A: Much of this information is available on Ecourts, Pacer and Municipal Court Case Search and platforms like that. You can also call the Court and they should be able to provide you with the information.
