When you reach out to the Houston expunction and nondisclosure attorney at Omar Saman, P.C., you can discuss the details of your case with a knowledgeable legal professional and learn about your options for clearing your criminal record.
Eligibility for Expunction in Houston
In Texas, most convictions cannot be removed from an individual’s record. However, there are certain circumstances that allow a person to permanently remove information about a previous charge, arrest, or conviction.
You may be eligible for expunction if:
- You were arrested for a crime but never charged
- You received a conviction for failure to attend school
- Your criminal charge was ultimately dismissed
- You were convicted for an alcohol-related crime as a minor
- You committed a qualifying misdemeanor juvenile offense
- Your conviction was acquitted by the trial court or the Criminal Court of Appeals
- You have a charge, arrest, or conviction on your record because someone committed a crime under your identity
- Your conviction was pardoned by the governor of Texas or the President of the United States
It is important to realize that meeting any of the above qualifications does not mean you will automatically receive expunction. Before applying for expunction, you should seek legal advice from an experienced criminal defense lawyer to make sure you are eligible. As your advocate, I can help ensure no costly errors are made during the application process.
Understanding Nondisclosure Orders
If you do not qualify for expunction, you may still be able to obtain a nondisclosure action. Although nondisclosure does not clear your record, it can keep your criminal activity hidden from potential employers, apartment managers, universities, and others.
The rules for who may apply for a nondisclosure order are complex. Let me evaluate your situation and determine if this option is right for you.
