Texas Expungement Attorney
If you have a criminal record, you might be experiencing many lasting effects. Criminal records can impact your ability to find a job or rental housing, your relationship with your children, and much more. Even an arrest or charges with no conviction can present many challenges.
Not everyone has to live with the stigma of a criminal record the rest of their lives, however, as Texas law allows qualified individuals to seek an expungement – also called expunction – of their criminal record. If you are interested in learning more about your options, contact an expungement lawyer in Texas at The Gilbert G. Garcia Law Firm.
Not everyone can have their record expunged. Unfortunately, if you were convicted of a crime, clearing that conviction from your record is not an option in Texas. However, there are many other marks on your record you might have expunged. These include:
- Arrests due to an error (such as the wrong name)
- Arrests when you were let go and never charged with a crime
- Criminal charges that were dismissed or ended in acquittal or not guilty verdicts
If you have an arrest or charges lingering on your record – even though you were not convicted – you should not hesitate to discuss the matter with a Texas expungement attorney.
In order to obtain an expungement, you must petition the court, and the fees to do so are non-refundable. This means you want to file a petition that is properly prepared when you have the best chance of a successful case.
