Texas law allows you to clean up your criminal record in some instances

you can deny the arrest ever occurred because any and all information
related to it is permanently deleted. If you think you might be eligible
for an expunction, contact a

Your charge may be expunged if:
- You were arrested for a charge but the charge was never actually filed
- Your charge was dismissed without having to do probation
- You were acquitted after a trial
- For a Class C misdemeanor: you successfully completed deferred disposition
If you have been charged with more than one crime in the same event, you
cannot get an expunction unless neither charge resulted in a conviction.
Also, you are ineligible for expunction until after the statute of limitations
has run. The statute of limitations starts from the date of arrest. For
misdemeanors, a person can have a dismissed charge expunged two years
after the date of arrest. For felonies, the statute of limitations varies
greatly depending on the specific charges. For most felonies, the statute
of limitations is three years, however other felonies have different statute
of limitations including 5, 7 and 10 years. Additionally, a person cannot
have their record expunged if he or she has been convicted of a felony
within five years of the arrest that is to be expunged. Our firm can review
your criminal record and discuss all of your legal options. We will do
everything we can to help you clean up your criminal past.
