We also realize, however, that such effects do not need to last forever. Our knowledgeable team is equipped to help you explore your options for clearing your record and getting the fresh start through the process of expunction.

Expunction and How To Clear Your Record in Texas

The word "expunction" certainly sounds formal and rather harsh. To many, it may be an unfamiliar term, but its meaning is very important to those looking for a new beginning. Expunction, sometimes known as "expungement," is the elimination of all records related to your arrest and any charges that followed. The process of expunction can be time-consuming and tedious, but the concept is pretty simple. If you are eligible for expunction, your arrest record will be cleared, and you can put your past behind you as you move on with your life.

Under Texas law, expungement cases are handled on an individual basis. Each offense that exists on your record must be reviewed separately to establish whether or not it qualifies for expunction. Many factors will affect your eligibility for expungement, including:

  • Whether your arrest resulted in an acquittal, conviction, or deferred adjudication;
  • Whether you have been granted a pardon;
  • How old you were at the time of conviction, if applicable;
  • How long it has been since your case was resolved;
  • Whether any related charges are currently pending; and
  • Your arrest record since the arrest for which you are seeking expunction.

In general, if you did not plead guilty and you were not convicted, you are likely to be eligible to have your record expunged.

Why Expunction Is Important

In today's world, criminal background checks are more common than ever before. You probably realize that a potential employer is likely to conduct a background check. However, you might be surprised to learn that you need to undergo a background check to volunteer at your child's school or to participate in other events and activities involving children. A criminal history could even cause problems with finding an affordable place to live or being accepted into certain education programs.

If you are eligible for expunction and you successfully complete the process, you will likely find that many doors are suddenly open to you. Once an arrest record has been expunged, it is gone forever. It will not show up on any background checks, and you will not need to tell anyone about it ever again.
