Texas Expunction Attorney: Expunctions, Non-Disclosure Orders & Sealing Of Records

A Texas expunction attorney understands that nobody is perfect, and everybody makes mistakes once in a while. However, there are times when an error in judgment results in criminal charges. These legal charges may lead to conviction and jail time. But what if there was a way to have your record sealed so that the general public could not see it?

This article will give you information on expunctions, nondisclosure orders, and sealing of records in Texas and whether or not you are eligible for them.

Consequences Of Getting Convicted Of A Crime

A criminal conviction will follow you for the rest of your life and make it difficult to get a job, housing, or credit. Also, you will lose your right to vote and own or possess a firearm if you have a felony conviction. You may also have difficulty getting into college or professional school.

Your criminal record is public information and is accessible by anyone who wants to find it. Even a misdemeanor conviction can show up on background checks and make it hard to get a job or secure a housing loan.

In addition, an arrest record can also be damaging, even if the charges against you did not end with a conviction. Many employers, landlords, and colleges will not want to risk hiring or renting to someone with an arrest record, regardless of the circumstances.

Fortunately, there are ways to have your criminal records cleared or sealed from the public eye. You can have another shot to live your everyday life and get on with your future. This kind of chance is through expunction, nondisclosure orders, and sealing of records with the help of a Texas expunction attorney.

What Is An Expunction?

An expunction is a court-ordered process that destroys all your arrest and criminal charges records. It is as if the arrest never happened. The court will order the law enforcement agencies involved in your arrest to destroy their records. Also, the court will issue an order to the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to expunge your criminal history.
You are legally allowed to say that you have never been arrested or charged with a crime after the deletion of your records. But this comes with some exceptions. You cannot lie about your expunged record on a job or housing application if the expunction is for a felony charge.
