Seeking Criminal Record Expungement In Texas?

Expunction And Nondisclosure: What Is The Difference?
“Expunction” and “nondisclosure” are both means of limiting who has access to information of a prior criminal arrest. They differ in a few ways:
- You can file for an expunction of your arrest record, if your case is dismissed or you are found not guilty. An expunction, effectively, generally erases the arrest from your record.
- In the event you received deferred adjudication probation for your crime and you complete the deferred adjudication probation successfully, you can file a petition for nondisclosure in most cases. When the judge grants an order for nondisclosure, the record will not be accessible to most private parties such as employers.
Both of these legal orders are very important for those who are seeking employment, professional licenses, housing, education and other privileges that require a background check. When an arrest is expunged or sealed, you can truthfully answer “no” when asked if you have an arrest on your record. This can open up many possibilities for your future.
