Are You Entitled to Expunction/Order of Non-Disclosure
Not all criminal records can be sealed, expunged or be removed by an order of nondisclosure. However, many can. To learn what is on your criminal record and what options are available to you for clearing it, obtain the guidance of an experienced attorney. The law office of J. Michael Price II, located in Dallas, is knowledgeable regarding the way Texas handles criminal records.
Discover If You Are Eligible For Expunction Or An Order Of Nondisclosure
The possible options available to you for clearing an offense from your criminal record depend on your particular record as well as on the facts of the offense in question. Within Texas law are guidelines that determine if and when you can petition the court for an order of nondisclosure or to have your criminal record expunged.
If an arrest did not result in a charge, the court subsequently dismissed a charge or you were found “not guilty” of certain offenses, you may qualify to have your record expunged. An order of nondisclosure is possible in a broader range of situations.
After successful completion of deferred adjudication probation, you can often petition for an order of nondisclosure. With some misdemeanors, you can do this as soon as you successfully complete the probation. Others require you to wait two years. Felonies typically require you to wait five years. We have the knowledge to guide you through the specifics of Texas law.
Legal Guidance Through Your Particular Situation
Perhaps a grand jury “no-billed” a charge against you. Perhaps the prosecution or court dismissed charges against you. Perhaps you were found “not guilty.” In these situations and others, you may qualify to have your criminal record cleared by an order of nondisclosure or expunction.
