Austin Expunction Attorneys You Can Trust

Austin Expunction Lawyer

Let Us Help Clear Your Record

Expunction of a case requires that the charge was dismissed, then the court can order law enforcement, courts, and record keeping entities to destroy records associated with your arrest or prosecution. This allows you to legally deny that you were ever charged with a criminal offense. The attorneys of Sablatura Williams will gladly meet with you to discuss your options in cleaning up your past, determine if you are eligible, and then handle your case as expeditiously as possible. The process of expunging a criminal record in Texas is often known as expunction. Similarly, sealing is also a court order to keep information from the public, known as an order of non-disclosure.

Crimes that Qualify for Expunction

Even if you were arrested for a felony it may be possible to have your record expunged. An Austin criminal defense attorney from Sablatura & Williams can handle the expunction process on your behalf.

Expunction may be possible under the following conditions:

  • You were acquitted of the crime you were charged with
  • You were convicted but subsequently found to be innocent
  • You were convicted but subsequently pardoned
  • You were formally charged by indictment or information and the case against you was later dismissed
  • You were arrested but not formally charged and you satisfied the waiting period

How does Non-Disclosure help?

Non-Disclosure of a case requires successful discharge of deferred adjudication probation. Once the deferred is completed and the requisite time requirements are met, the court can order law enforcement not to disclose to any third party any criminal record associated with your deferment. This then allows you to legally deny that you were ever arrested, charged or placed on deferral for an offense. You need to file a petition for expunction or non-disclosure in the district court for the county in which you were arrested or in which the offense occurred.
