The Choate Firm receives phone calls almost daily regarding the availability of getting an expunction from a Texas court. This is a completely understandable desire. After all, even a misdemeanor conviction can have serious consequences to a person’s ability to get a job, find an apartment, or get a professional license.
What many people don’t realize is that expunctions are only available in a very limited set of circumstances. For example, someone who has been placed on deferred adjudication is not eligible to have their record expunged. (Instead, he must seek an order for nondisclosure.) In addition, there are certain waiting periods that must be observed before a petition for expunction can be filed.
If you have questions about filing a petition for expunction in a Texas court, please contact the Choate Firm today to schedule an appointment.
