With more than five decades of combined experience, our Harris County legal team has a thorough understanding of Texas law to help you navigate through the intricacies of the criminal justice system.

Eligibility for Expungement

The definition of expungement is an overall elimination of your criminal record. This means that all related documents and the file itself are destroyed as if your criminal record never existed in the first place.

The eligibility requirements for an expungement in Texas include:

  • You were found “not guilty” at trial
  • You were arrested, but not charged with a criminal offense
  • Your charge was dismissed
  • Your criminal offense was a minor alcohol-related offense
  • Your criminal offense was a misdemeanor juvenile crime
  • Your conviction was overturned on appeal
  • You were originally charged with identity theft but later convicted the actual offender
  • Your case was dismissed or “no billed” by the Grand Jury

Orders of Nondisclosure

If you are not eligible to get your record expunged, having it sealed is often the next best option. While an “order of non-disclosure” does not entirely destroy your record, it does remove it from the public eye and make it nearly invisible to nearly all background checks. Your record may be available to Texas police departments and certain government entities, but to the rest of the world, it will be as if your record never existed.

However, you do not qualify to have your record sealed if:

  • You have been convicted of or placed on probation for a felony crime
  • Your probation was revoked
  • Your DWI offense involved a collision or injury to another individual
  • You were convicted of a violent crime
