San Antonio Record Clearance Lawyer
Clearing Your Texas Criminal Record
Do you have a conviction or even an arrest on your record that has made it hard for you to obtain or keep a job? Do you have a child who wants the same opportunities of attending college or obtaining a job as anyone else? A criminal record can follow you around for life, but with the help of an experienced attorney it is possible to obtain a record clearance. Expunction, or record Clearance is defined as having a criminal conviction “cleared” from your record. An adult (anyone over 17) can sometimes have a Texas court take a conviction off his or her record – or if for a juvenile crime, have the record sealed.
As an adult in Texas you have the following three options to clear your record:
- File a petition for expunction in a civil district court to erase your conviction as though it never occurred (although it may be accessible to certain federal government agencies for very limited purposes.) A successful order granting expunction allows one to swear under oath that no record or arrest ever existed.
- Petition for non-disclosure or non-verification (this will not erase your conviction, but will seal it from schools and most employers and allows you to legally deny a criminal record when asked.)
- Constitutional Writ of Habeas (this is rare, but it essentially allows you to readdress past legal errors to try and erase your conviction.)

As a parent of a juvenile offender in Texas you may have your child’s juvenile record sealed. This will make it so future schools and employers will not be able to view your child’s record. Depending on the case, you may be able to have your son’s or daughter’s record sealed with the help of an experienced lawyer, without having to go to court.
