Expungements and Petition for Nondisclosures
A Fresh Start
A previous felony or other criminal offense can affect a person’s life on many levels including future employment opportunities and places to live. Expungements and nondisclosures are legal processes that “erase” or tightly seal your previous conviction and can result in a new beginning and a fresh start in life.
However, not everyone qualifies for an expungement or a nondisclosure — there are specific requirements that need to be met in order to obtain one of them.
The nature of the conviction, and requirements including deferred adjudication and a successfully completed probationary period, will often determine eligibility.

Expunge Criminal Record in North Texas
An expungement is a legal process that completely eliminates the criminal offense from your record. A nondisclosure seals it from being viewed by the public. A petition for nondisclosure keeps the criminal record sealed from the public, but can still be accessed by authorities in the event that you become the subject of future investigation.
Both expungements and nondisclosures can be extremely helpful in improving your chances of obtaining better employment and living standards. Employers are allowed to base some of their hiring decisions on the potential employees’ criminal records. With an expungement, the criminal offense is completely removed from the individual’s record, and with a nondisclosure it is inaccessible to the public.
