Chapter 55 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure details the qualifications and requirements which must be met before an individual's criminal offenses can be expunged from his or her criminal record. As long as the charges filed against you were dismissed, you were acquitted at trial, or you were convicted and the conviction was either pardoned or overturned on appeal, your criminal record may be eligible for expunction.
Arrests which do not result in charges being filed against you can also be permanently removed from your arrest record through the expunction process. Expunction does not occur automatically. If you want to have your criminal record cleared, hiring a skilled criminal defense attorney from our firm will significantly improve your chances of the judge approving your expunction.
There are many benefits to having your criminal record cleared. Expunction offers a sense of freedom and relief that would be otherwise unattainable. After successfully expunging your criminal record, you will no longer be required to inform potential employers or landlords that you have been convicted of a crime. Expunction can also give you the chance to obtain student loans, home loans, car loans, professional licenses and certifications, as well as avail yourself of other opportunities inaccessible to those with criminal records.
