Understanding The Texas Expungement Process

The process of expungement is a legal avenue designed to give individuals who have been arrested and charged with crimes a chance to leave that history behind them and start over. In Texas, expunging your criminal record is a statutory right, meaning that it’s granted by laws passed by the legislature, not the Constitution.

You may be eligible for an expungement if you were found not guilty, received a pardon, or were charged but not convicted. This includes cases in which charges were dismissed or the statute of limitations ran out. Some charges, like those involving violence or offenses against children, can’t be expunged. If your petition for expunction is successful, law enforcement agencies and other reporting entities will be required to erase your arrest from their records.

At our family-operated firm, we bring 45 combined years of legal experience, and we offer bilingual support in English and Spanish.
