Fort Bend County Criminal Defense Attorney.
Obtaining a Non-Disclosure in Texas.

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 opportunities.

Protect Your Future.

  1. Remember that time is of the essence. Stalling or failing to retain legal counsel makes it more difficult to gather witness statements and favorable evidence while memories are fresh. Additionally, relevant evidence in your case may only be retained by law enforcement for a short amount of time.
