Fort Bend County Non-Disclosure Attorney
Helping Clients in the Greater Houston Area
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
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.

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.

- 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
