Clear Your Criminal Record With an Experienced Texas Expungement Attorney and Nondisclosure Attorney
The procedures for expunction and nondisclosure are complex. The Law Offices of Martin J. Rubin has successfully finalized numerous expunctions and nondisclosures in many Texas counties. If you have been found guilty by a judge or jury you are ineligible for expunction or nondisclosure. You are excluded if you have been convicted and you were sent to jail or the penitentiary. You are excluded if your deferred adjudication was adjudicated. If your were found not guilty, if your case was dismissed or if your case was reduced to a class C misdemeanor you may be eligible for expunction or nondisclosure of your criminal record.
Why should you retain the services of Attorney Martin J. Rubin, an experienced Texas expungement attorney and nondiscclosure attorney to file an expunction or petition for nondisclosure?
1. You can deny the criminal offense on job applications.
2. Potential employees will not be able to see your criminal record (except many governmental agencies can view your history if your case is nondislcosed).
3. The public cannot see your criminal history on county criminal databases.
4. Internet companies that purchase criminal histories will be told by the State to remove your record from their databases or face penalties.
3. Lending institutions will be more likely to loan you money.
4. You can more easily rent an apartment or home.
5. It will be easier to do volunteer work with children.
Article 55.03 of the Code of Criminal Procedure provides that when the order of expunction is final:
(1) the release, maintenance, dissemination, or use of the expunged records and files for any purpose is prohibited;
(2) except as provided in Subdivision (3) of this article, the person arrested may deny the occurrence of the arrest and the existence of the expunction order; and
(3) the person arrested or any other person, when questioned under oath in a criminal proceeding about an arrest for which the records have been expunged, may state only that the matter in question has been expunged.
The Texas Government Code provides that a person whose criminal history record information has been sealed under the nondisclosure procedure is not required in any application for employment, information, or licensing to state that the person has been the subject of any criminal proceeding related to the information that is the subject of an order issued under this section.
Cases for DUI, MIC and MIP relating to alcohol offenses can also be expunged.
In order for you to be eligible you can have only 1 conviction or deferred disposition and you must be 21 years of age or older. The expungement is supposed to be filed in the court where the case was handled.
Many municipal courts do not understand the process of expungement and therefore the petition can possibly be filed in the county district court.
