In 2017, the Texas legislature made a significant change to the law, broadening the scope of what is allowed to be sealed in your criminal background, including those convicted of DWIs.
Many people are unaware of this change, but using this new law can help you with job searches and many other life opportunities you would not have otherwise.
Through the "request for a nondisclsoure" process in court, a court can issue an order to all law enforcement agencies to seal your criminal history - or not disseminate it to anyone. This would make it unavailable in a criminal background check.
The "expunction" or "expungement" process is different, and is an actual erasure of an arrest or charge that was dismissed or reversed.
Most misdemeanors and first-time DWIs qualify if two years has passed since your case was finished in court.
