Find Out if You Qualify for Expunction of Your Criminal Records
Expunging your criminal records in Texas is a time consuming process that should not be done without a knowledgeable expunction attorney by your side. Only certain criminal offenses can be expunged for defendants. The circumstances that often qualify a person for expunction include:
- A “Not-Guilty” verdict after a trial hearing
- Being acquitted by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals
- Having a conviction that is pardoned by the Governor
- Completing a deferred adjudication for a Class C misdemeanor
Some criminal offenses require a 5 year waiting period before a petition for expunction can be filed. Other types of crimes may only be eligible for “sealing”, or non-disclosure to the public. Find out which one you are eligible for, so you can begin a new life without a criminal past.
