Criminal Record Expunction Attorney in Fort Worth/Tarrant County Texas

Expunction—also called expungement—refers to the process of clearing your criminal record of an arrest, charge or conviction. Clearing your record can make a big difference in your life.

Background checks can affect your ability to find a job or a place to live. An old mistake can haunt you for years. At The Carreras Law Group, P.C., our Mid-Cities criminal defense attorney can help you with expunction and non-disclosure order issues.

Can My Record Be Cleared?

Texas law limits the things that you can seek to remove from your permanent record:

  • An arrest for a crime that was not charged can be expunged.
  • If a grand jury no billed the charges against you, you can qualify for expunction.
  • Dismissals can often be expunged, though a certain amount of time may have to pass before you are eligible. The same is true in situations involving deferred adjudication.
  • In addition, many cases involving juvenile offenses can be expunged.

The good news is that if you are eligible, the process is relatively painless for you. Once you choose us to help you with your expunction, we do the rest. We take care of all the paperwork. We attend the hearing. We will keep you informed and let you know about any developments. In 45 to 60 days, generally, we will have the court’s answer for you.

Expunction or Non-Disclosure

When the judge signs your order for expunction, you will have the right to have your criminal record cleared. A background search will turn up no record of the incident, not even a note that the record has been cleared. You won’t have to tell anyone about your conviction when applying for a job, license or loan. It will be like it never happened.

In some cases where expunction is not available, we may be able to pursue an order for nondisclosure for you. While an expunction will clear your record, an order for nondisclosure will limit who can access your records. After an order for nondisclosure, private companies will not be able to see your record, but certain public entities will still have access.

A New Start for You

Our goal is make sure you have the right to have qualifying incidents taken off your record. A clean record is a new start for you. You will finally be free from the trouble a criminal record brings. Our firm takes incredible satisfaction from helping people get an expunction or order for nondisclosure.
