San Antonio Expunctions Attorney
Successfully Serving Texas Clients Since 1994
Arrests can follow you years into the future. As part of your criminal record, they can be accessed by others in a routine background check, meaning employers, landlords, educational institutions, and more, may deny you opportunities. The good news is that in some cases, you may be able to clear your record, and hopefully, restore your reputation through an expunction. Only certain arrests and charges are eligible for expunction. To determine if you are eligible, call our San Antonio expunctions lawyer at Beasley Law Firm.
How Expunction Works
You may be able to have your record expunged if:
- You were never found guilty
- You were arrested but never charged
- Your charges were dismissed
- You were charged with a Class C misdemeanor but received deferred adjudication and you completed probation, community service, or treatment
- You were acquitted
San Antonio Non-disclosure Attorney
Those who are not eligible for an expunction may be eligible to petition the court for an order of non-disclosure after completing deferred adjudication. In deferred adjudication, a plea of no-contest or guilty is made in exchange for accepting and completing court-ordered requirements, such as community service, probation, treatment, or other programs. A court order granting a non-disclosure prevents your record from being disclosed to others, as in a background check, and may hopefully, help clear your reputation in the community. However, unlike expunctions, the government will retain the records.
