What is Criminal Record Expunction?

Texas Code of Criminal Procedure §55.01 provides for expunction of the criminal record of an individual. You are generally eligible to have your criminal record cleared if you meet one or more of the following scenarios:

  • You were arrested and released without being charged.
  • Criminal charges filed against you were dismissed.
  • You were accused of a class C misdemeanor that was dismissed after deferred adjudication.
  • Criminal charges were filed, but you were acquitted at trial.
  • The arrest, charges, or conviction was the result of someone stealing and using your identity, and the person was ultimately charged and convicted of the theft.

The best way to determine if you are eligible for an expunction of your criminal record is to have our Austin expunction lawyers review the record and offer their trusted advice about how to proceed.

How Do I Get an Expunction in Austin?

Expunction begins by meeting with your lawyer to provide him or her with the information needed to prepare the petition asking the court to expunge or remove your criminal record. Once the petition is filed with the court, a hearing is scheduled at which your attorney presents evidence, including witness testimony, in support of the petition.

Attempting to file a petition for expunction on your own without an experienced criminal defense law firm representing you through the process is difficult. The rules and eligibility requirements pertaining to expunction must be followed to the letter of the law.
