What is an Expunction? Do I Qualify?

 You may be eligible for a court-ordered expunction to clear your criminal record if:

  1. You were arrested but never prosecuted and the statute of limitations has run;
  2. You were arrested, prosecuted, and acquitted;
  3. You were arrested, prosecuted and the case was dismissed for other reasons; and
  4. You were arrested, prosecuted and then convicted of a lesser charge.

How to expunge your record:

First, you must obtain accurate information on the details of the arrest or alleged offense.  With this, Texas law allows a person to file a petition with the court in the county in which the criminal action was filed.   This petitioner requests an order that all records from all related law-enforcement agencies or court entities remove all information from your record related to the arrest or charge in question. This request requires at least 30 days notice to the prosecuting attorney and other related entities before a hearing on the matter. At the hearing, if there is no objection from law enforcement, and if the court finds you meet all of the requirements to be eligible for expunction, the order will be issued accordingly.
