Record sealing is not available where probation was imposed, or a conviction was obtained. But you can seek a sealed record or an order of nondisclosure to prevent non-government parties from accessing the records if you successfully complete deferred adjudication. Avoid the far-reaching effects of a criminal record by contacting the San Antonio defense lawyers at Rush & Gransee today. Call our office to arrange a free consultation.
Record Sealing | The Far-Reaching Effects of a Criminal Record
College admissions boards, employers, creditors, and landlords can all potentially gain access to your criminal record if they are interested in a background check. Many companies hired to perform background checks do not accurately communicate the details of your case such as a dismissal, which could result in job loss or damage to your career and reputation. We are sympathetic to the various needs of our clients and will help you explore your options and alternatives to preserve your liberties and your rights.
Record Sealing | Expunction
An expunction is only available where a citizen was arrested but charges were dismissed or the defendant was found not guilty after a trial. An expunction will destroy all records related to your arrest. If your case was dismissed, you can request an expunction after the statute of limitations has run on that crime. If you won an acquittal at trial, you can seek an expunction immediately. Contact us for more information about the waiting period or to pursue an expunction in your case.
An expunction means you can deny ever being arrested on employment applications or anywhere else (except in a criminal trial). No one can find the records, but you need a San Antonio expungement lawyer who will list all the entities that need to be informed about the expunction.
