Non-disclosures prevent the Texas Department of Public Safety and other law enforcement agencies from releasing arrest and case knowledge to anyone other than a 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.
Our team at LaHood Norton Law Group can help you petition for non-disclosure. We are extremely familiar with the policies and procedures involved in obtaining an order of non-disclosure. Put nearly a century of combined experience on your side by retaining our San Antonio non-disclosure attorneys.
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.
By obtaining a non-disclosure order, you can enjoy greater freedom in your daily life and peace of mind knowing that your record is hidden from public access. That means employers, lenders, landlords, and others who may conduct a background check will not be able to see a criminal offense on your record.
At LaHood Norton Law Group, we understand how impactful a non-disclosure order can be for our clients. We are ready to work tirelessly and build a strong case on your behalf. With our San Antonio non-disclosure order lawyers on your side, you’ll be positioned for success from the very start.
