In Texas, expungement, also known as expunction, is only available when charges have been dismissed or the accused is acquitted. An expungement removes the record of the entire criminal process against the defendant from his or her record. If you file for an expungement and you are approved, your record will be wiped clean as if there was never any case at all.
Some cases in Texas are not available for expunction. For example, if you have been acquitted of a DWI, the charge and acquittal will remain on your record unless you file a petition for expunction. If you have any questions about your rights and options regarding the expungement of your record, we can help.
Petition for Nondisclosure and Record Sealing
The petition for nondisclosure of criminal records is a broader and more discretionary relief, directed to the completion of a deferred adjudication. While it will not remove the charge from your record completely, like an expungement, it will restrict access for most job-seeking, apartment renting, or educational purposes.
Our firm will also make sure that the information held by the TCIC (Texas Criminal Information Center) correctly reflects the state of public access to your criminal records. We want to make sure all expunction or nondisclosure orders are correctly implemented and you receive their full benefits.
