Non Disclosures

Non-disclosures simply prevent the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies from releasing arrest and case knowledge to anyone other than another law enforcement agency or certain specifically enumerated agencies. If you are eligible for non-disclosure and follow the proper procedures, the judge has the discretion to grant or deny your petition for non-disclosure.

Once a petition has been filed, the court will address the petition to have your record sealed or expunged. This could take anywhere from a couple of weeks to a couple of months. Occasionally, the judge may have a prove-up hearing which could extend the process. Once a non-disclosure order is signed by a judge, you should expect it to take four to six months before the records are completely sealed or expunged.
