Expunctions and Non-Disclosures


You did not get that job or place that was perfect for you. Maybe it’s not your credit history but your criminal record that is preventing your achievement of the successful life.

Everyone, at some point, has made a bad mistake or has been in the wrong place at the wrong time resulting in trouble. Unfortunately, trouble can result in a criminal record reflecting an arrest, charge or conviction. In Texas, if you were charged with an offense that was later dismiss then you may be eligible to have your record expunged or sealed.


Expunctions- Expunction better known as an expungment allows a person who has been arrested, charged with a crime or convicted to permanently remove information about an arrest, a charge or conviction from their permanent criminal record. Once the record is expunged or wiped clean, then all information is gone and the person can legally deny the event happened.


While most convictions cannot be removed from a person’s record, Texas law does allow individuals to sealed or not disclose information about an arrest, charge or conviction from their permanent records in certain circumstances.


Non-disclosure- A nondisclosure order does not completely destroy all record of any offense, but will limit the accessibility of the records. Records subject to a nondisclosure order are removed from public record and cannot be released or accessed by certain private parties. However, the records will remain available to government agencies and will be admissible in certain court actions.
