Fort Bend County Non-Disclosure Attorney
If you have a criminal charge on your record, it can affect your ability
to get a job, loan or positive outcome in a situation involving a background
check. Under Texas law, there are several options for people to prevent
a criminal charge from affecting their future, including expunctions and
non-disclosures. If you are unable to obtain an
expunction, Texas law allows certain individuals that have successfully been discharge
from their deferred probation to petition the court for a non-disclosure.
A non-disclosure will prevent the general public from having access to
your criminal record related to that specific offense. However, certain
governmental agencies and law enforcement will still have access to your
criminal record. Certain major crimes do not qualify for a non-disclosure,
and other crimes may come with a wait period before you can file a motion.
A non-disclosure can help you:
- Show a clean record to certain individuals searching your background
- Avoid a social stigma
- Increase your chances of qualifying for loans, employment, housing or educational
