Expunging Criminal Records
Once your case has been dismissed or you have been found not guilty, there is an important final step to help you put the case behind you. You should have your record expunged.
Unfortunately, there is still an arrest record that is accessible to various law enforcement agencies and even to private individuals like employers. They will be able to know that you were once charged with a crime.
An expunction totally clears every public record relating to the incident, as if the incident never happened.
Your case may be eligible for an expunction. Call us today at 210-617-3925 to check if you are eligible.
Sealing Your Criminal Records
If you are not eligible for an expunction, you may be eligible to have your record sealed or nondisclosed.
An order of nondisclosure does not remove your record from the court, but it seals your record from most public databases. It allows the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS) to grant access to your record to a limited amount of agencies or parties, such as criminal agencies. Most private agencies do not receive this information, such as employers and private colleges. It also allows you to deny your arrest on employment applications and college applications.
