What Are the Conditions for an Expunction of My Case?
Did you know that even if you were wrongfully arrested or acquitted of a charge, it can have far-reaching consequences that impact the rest of your life? When landlords, employers, or anyone else performs a background check, they’ll learn about your criminal record. Luckily, the expunction lawyers at Puente Law Firm, PLLC can help. Our team will work to erase your criminal record so it no longer exists. Not every case qualifies for expunction. There are specific conditions set by the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure (Article 55.01) that an individual must meet as stipulated by the law:
- The individual was arrested but never charged with a crime.
- The charges were dismissed.
- The individual was acquitted at trial.
- The individual was convicted but later pardoned by the Governor of Texas or the US President.
- The person arrested was a victim of identity theft (someone else committed the crime using their name or identity).
What Is an Order of a Non-Disclosure?
In Texas, an order of non-disclosure is a legal process to limit the accessibility of your criminal record. While it does not entirely erase or destroy the record like an expunction, it is sealed from public view. Certain private entities, such as employers or landlords, could not see this record in a background check. However, government bodies, law enforcement agencies, and other entities defined by Texas law can still access these records under specific circumstances. Our lawyers will petition the courts for a non-disclosure for your criminal record to help provide better opportunities for you in the future, including the following:
- Employment Applications
- Housing Applications
- Loan Approvals
- Educational Opportunities
- Professional Licensing
