Record Expungement

If you have been placed on deferred adjudication or convicted of a crime previously, there are some avenues you might be able to pursue to clear your name and move on from this unfortunate incident. A Texas record expungement lawyer can help.

Petitions for Nondisclosure 

Have you or a loved one ever been placed on deferred adjudication?  If you have completed deferred adjudication probation, you may be eligible to seal your record through the non-disclosure process.  The attorneys of Harris & Harris can determine whether your records are eligible for non-disclosure.

There are many factors to consider when determining eligibility to file a petition for nondisclosure.  First, only offenses for which an individual was placed on deferred adjudication are eligible for non-disclosure.  If an individual was sentenced to jail or prison, their case is not eligible.  Similarly, if an individual was placed on regular probation, their case is not eligible.  Second, the type of offense for which an individual was placed on deferred adjudication affects eligibility.  For example, certain violent offenses and those involving domestic violence are among offenses not eligible for non-disclosure.  Third, an individual’s criminal history and the time elapsed since completion of probation must be considered when determining eligibility. 

Our lawyers will be happy to provide you with a full explanation of your rights and the law as it applies to your individual facts and circumstances.  The information provided here is not intended as legal advice, nor is it intended as a full explanation of your rights under the law or to indicate whether you may or may not be eligible for a petition for nondisclosure.
