Need an Expunction?
Call an Expunction Attorney in New Braunfels, San Marcos & Seguin
The Texas legal system recognizes that no one is perfect by allowing the
expungement of criminal record. Expunction means that there is no need
to suffer for your past mistakes, lapses in otherwise sound judgment or
the actions of others. But expunction without the help of an attorney
leads to making errors in court documents, which could have serious consequences.
Getting legal advice
is essential before petitioning the courts for your expunction case.
Who Qualifies for Expunction
Having a criminal record can lead to missing out on job opportunities,
and no one can afford that in the current economic climate. The right
to expunction applies to not only criminal history records, but also to
arrest and court records held by various government agencies.
Texas applies expunction to certain circumstances, including:
- Being arrested, but not charged
- Charges being brought but ultimately dismissed
- Certain juvenile offenses, including some misdemeanors, some alcohol offenses
committed as a minor, and conviction for Failure to Attend School
- The arrest and conviction of someone else under your name where you were
the victim of identity theft
- Convictions acquitted on appeal
- Cases where a convicted person is later pardoned by the Governor of Texas
or the United States President
Successful petitions for the expungement of criminal records further depend
on when the applicable statute of limitations (which changes with each
crime, but is usually three years or less) expires; arrests before or
since the incident the petition relates to; and whether or not the petitioner
is on probation.
