Expunction and Non-Disclosure of Arrest Records in Texas
If you have been arrested for a crime and never received a final conviction, then you may be eligible to have your arrest expunged from your record or you may eligible to receive a court order preventing the disclosure of your arrest to third-parties such as potential employers and schools. Depending on the facts of your case, if you were arrested and were acquitted, had the charges against you dropped, or successfully completed a pre-trial diversion program, then you may be eligible to have a court order agencies with a record of your arrest to destroy or “obliterate” any portion of a file or record that identifies you as having been arrested.
The Texas expunction statute is among the most comprehensive and powerful in the nation. If you have been arrested and not received a final conviction, then you owe it to yourself to see if you qualify for expunction or non-disclosure. If your arrest record is expunged or non-disclosed, then you may:
- Tell potential employers that you have never been arrested;
- Tell colleges and universities that you have never been arrested;
- Become eligible for student loans;
- Become eligible for housing assistance; and
- Have additional occupational and professional opportunities available to you.
