Sugarland Texas Expunction Attorney
When clients retain our legal services, we immediately begin work on their case and offer a variety of options for obtaining an expunction order or a petition for non-disclosure seal.
What Is Expunction?
Criminal record expunction – also known as “expungement” – is the legal process of removing a criminal arrest record from public records. (Technically speaking, the record is “expunged.”)
Why Seek Expunction?
Having criminal charges on your record makes your life difficult in a number of ways:
It can hinder you from attaining a lease on an apartment.
It can make employers apprehensive about hiring you.
You could be denied admission to schools and colleges.
Do You Qualify for Expunction?
Only certain criminal offenses can be expunged for defendants.
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’re eligible for, so you can begin a new life without a criminal past.
