Do You Need To Clear Your Criminal Record?
A criminal record can have a negative impact on your life. From getting a job to getting loan, you should not be punished your entire life for one mistake. There are ways to clear records and get a fresh start in Texas. The McKinney Law Office of Richard Weaver can help you understand your options for the expunction and nondisclosure of your criminal records.
A Board-Certified Criminal Law Attorney With Decades Of Experience
With over 45 years of criminal defense experience in McKinney, lawyer Richard Weaver is familiar with the state and federal procedures required to clear criminal records in Texas. Whether you received your sentence in juvenile or criminal court, he can help you understand your options for obtaining a clear record:
- Expunction: A complete removal of your arrest from your record, an expunction generally follows an acquittal or dismissal of charges. You can also receive an expunction if charges are never filed. Although you may have to wait a period of time, an expunction will help you keep your record clean.
- Nondisclosures: If you have been placed on deferred adjudication for a crime, you may be able to make sure the information is not made available to the public with a nondisclosure. A person whose criminal record information has been made the subject of an order of nondisclosure is not required on any application for employment or licensing that he or she has been the subject of any criminal action that is the subject of the nondisclosure.
- Motions to seal records: If you have been convicted of a crime in juvenile court, you can keep the conviction off your permanent record with a motion to seal records. Some charges may stay on your record forever if you do not work with an experienced juvenile law attorney to try to get your records sealed.
