Orders of expunction/expungement and nondisclosure give you the right to deny you were ever arrested. The day you were arrested was probably one of the worst days of your life. I believe you should not have to explain such a personal circumstance with anyone, let alone your boss, creditor or landlord!
- Motion to Dismiss
- Deferred Disposition
- Deferred Prosecution
- Pre-trial Diversion (PTD)
- Pre-trial Intervention (PTI)
Your eligibility for a Texas expunction/expungement depends upon several factors, such as the method of disposition, whether the statute of limitations has run, and any prior criminal history. For answers regarding your specific situation, please contact me.
AN ORDER OF NONDISCLOSURE means law enforcement and government agencies are prohibited from revealing your criminal history record to the general public. You must have successfully completed a term of deferred adjudication to be eligible. Unlike an expunction/expungement, the information is retained by the agencies, but is sealed from the public. However, there are exceptions to nondisclosure orders. State licensing and regulatory agencies, schools, hospitals, and state, county, and municipal hiring authorities, for example, would still have access to the information.
Nondisclosure is not complete expunction/expungement, so make sure you understand the effects and consequences before hiring a lawyer. To discuss the specific exceptions, please contact me..
