Your arrest history can limit your life in many ways. When applying for a job, apartment lease or a bank loan, you often are required to answer questions about arrest history. Limit the impact of criminal history. A prior arrest or charge may be sealed under Texas law. Depending on how your case was resolved, you may be eligible for an expunction or nondisclosure. Don’t let an old case affect your ability to get a job, an apartment, or a loan. Take the steps to get your record sealed.
If you were acquitted or your case was dismissed, you may be eligible for an expunction. Situations arise when you are asked to disclose prior arrests. Although you may have been found not guilty or had a case dismissed, prospective employers and banks will have access to records. An expunction will seal those records. You will be able to deny the arrest ever occurred.
If you successfully completed deferred adjudication probation, you may be eligible for a nondisclosure. If the court grants your petition for nondisclosure, you will no longer be required to disclose information regarding that particular charge. Entities that possess the case information are then restricted to whom they may disclose the information. A nondisclosure can truly keep your past where it belongs: in the past.
There are several requirements that must be met in order for you to be eligible for a nondisclosure.
