Brazoria County Nondisclosure Attorneys
Experienced Galveston Criminal Defence Lawyers
When a criminal record cannot be wiped clean by expunction, it may be possible to limit record accessibility through a nondisclosure order. Records that are subject to this type of order are removed from public record and placed on restricted access.
If you have successfully completed your deferred adjudication probation, or if you have no criminal history and are trying to hide your first conviction, the Law Office of Steve O. Gonzalez can help you through the process of getting your records sealed. Our Brazoria County nondisclosure lawyers have over 32 years of criminal defense experience and have effectively managed over 6,000 cases.
Depend on our professional legal team and call (832) 900-9867 to get started with the nondisclosure filing process.
Applying for Nondisclosure in Brazoria & Galveston Counties
If you have a criminal record, obtaining an order of disclosure may be beneficial for your future. Filing for a petition for nondisclosure is often a long and complex process with several steps involved. The first step is determining if your record qualifies for a nondisclosure.
Generally, individuals qualify for an order of nondisclosure if:
- They were convicted of a misdemeanor and have no other criminal history
- The offense was not an organized crime offense
- The offense was not violent or sexual in nature
- The terms of the sentence were met
- They have no waiting period convictions or deferred adjudications
- They were convicted of DWI for the first time and meet additional requirements
After you determine that you are eligible, the next step is to have an experienced attorney draft a petition for nondisclosure that meets the statutory requirements and includes all agencies and governmental entities that have records of your arrest. Next, your attorney will file the petition in the court in which you were convicted or placed on deferred adjudication. Following this, you may be required to attend a hearing. If the outcome is successful, you will receive an order of nondisclosure.
