Expunction Attorney Houston, Texas
A criminal background check turns up any arrest you may have, even if you were found not guilty or were falsely accused. So under certain circumstances the State of Texas allows the destruction, otherwise known as expunction, of a criminal record. However, getting your record expunged is a complicated and delicate process.
As an adult with a criminal record, you can have your record expunged if:
- You were tried and found Not Guilty
- Your case was dismissed
- You win an appeal in the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals
- You completed deferred adjudication probation for a Class C Misdemeanor
- Another person was arrested under your name
- You received a pardon from the Governor of Texas or the President of the United States
Expunction essentially erases any history of your arrest, making it as if it never happened. According to Texas law, expunction allows you to deny you were ever arrested, giving you a clean slate for job applications, school applications, and lease applications.
