Expungement & Nondisclosure
Everyone wants a clean record. Luckily, expungement and nondisclosure is possible in Texas. An experienced criminal lawyer at the Aqrawi & Nguyen Law Firm, PLLC can handle record expunction, as well as petitions for nondisclosure for clients throughout the Houston area and beyond.
What Can the Right Defense do for You?
In Texas, expungement, also known as expunction, is only available when charges have been dismissed or the accused is acquitted. Expungement removes the entire criminal proceedings from the defendant’s official record. If you file for an expungement and you are approved, then your record will be wiped clean as if there was never any case at all.
However, some cases in Texas are not available for expunction. If you have any questions about your rights and options regarding the expungement of your criminal record, we can help.
Petition for Nondisclosure and Record Sealing
The petition for nondisclosure of criminal records is a broader, more discretionary type of relief directed at the completion of a deferred adjudication. While it will not remove the charge from your record completely like an expungement, it will restrict access for most job-seeking, apartment renting, or educational purposes.
Our firm will also make sure that the information held by the Texas Criminal Information Center correctly reflects the state of public access to your criminal records. We want to make sure all expunction or nondisclosure orders are correctly implemented so that you receive their full benefits.
It can be hard to move on with your life after a criminal charge or conviction, but getting a record expungement or nondisclosure order for your records is a good place to start.
