expungements and nondisclosures

At Vargas Guerra LLP, we understand that past legal issues should not dictate your future opportunities. Whether you're seeking to clear your record through expungement or to protect your privacy with a nondisclosure agreement, our experienced legal team is here to guide you through each step of the process. This page explains how we can assist you in navigating the complexities of expungements and nondisclosures in Texas, ensuring a brighter and more secure future.

Expungement: A Fresh Start

Expungement, also known as expunction, offers individuals the chance to erase certain criminal records, essentially granting a "fresh start." In Texas, eligibility for expungement is limited to specific circumstances, including:

  • Arrests that did not lead to a conviction
  • Certain juvenile offenses
  • Convictions for which the individual was later acquitted by the trial court or the Criminal Court of Appeals
  • Convictions for which the individual was pardoned

Our firm assists clients in determining their eligibility for expungement and represents them throughout the entire process, from filing the petition to representing them in court hearings.

Nondisclosure Agreements: Protecting Your Privacy

A nondisclosure agreement, or an order of nondisclosure, does not erase your criminal record but restricts public access to it. This option is particularly valuable for individuals who have successfully completed deferred adjudication probation for certain offenses. An order of nondisclosure ensures that your criminal record is not disclosed to the general public, although it remains accessible to government agencies and certain employers.
