If you have been charged with a crime, served out provisions of a sentence and are ready to move on, you don't need to have a criminal record hanging over your head.
The Texas Department of Public Safety allows some defendants, upon successful completion of a deferred adjudication, to submit a petition for non-disclosure so that the record of a deferred adjudication is sealed. Defendants may also seek an expunction to remove a dismissed charge or not-guilty verdict from their criminal records.
If you have a criminal record that is hindering your ability to obtain employment, housing or professional licensing, a legal team with expunction experience can help.
If you have ever been arrested for a crime, that charge will likely show up on a background check. Even if you were released without charges being filed against you, it is likely that the charge can still be found on your criminal history. State law allows the expunction of some crimes within six months of arrest if you were released without charge.
