Expunctions

A criminal record may prevent you from getting into the college of your choice, applying for your dream job, or even closing a deal on a new house. It is important to understand your options. Were you charged with a criminal offense that resulted in a dismissal, a completed pre-trial diversion program, a successfully disposed of deferred adjudication probation, or a reduction to a lesser offense? If so, you may be eligible for an expunction or nondisclosure to ensure your criminal record is kept private.

In Texas, Chapter 55 of the Code of Criminal Procedure allows for expunctions of certain criminal offenses. Categories of offenses that may be eligible for expunction include:

  • Most felonies and misdemeanors that were dismissed outright
  • Cases where an individual was found not guilty at trial
  • Class C offenses that were dismissed after successful completion of deferred adjudication community supervision
  • Most misdemeanor and felony offenses where a person was arrested but never charged- if a required waiting period has passed
  • Convictions, including offenses where the individual did time or was on straight probation- if the offense has been pardoned
  • Cases where the prosecutor recommends the case is expunged
