Sealing of Records – Non-Disclosure Attorney San Antonio TX
Tired of living with a criminal record?
Texas state law is tough on people who have been convicted of crimes, but it also provides opportunities for individuals to seek relief from the serious consequences of an arrest, filing of charges or conviction. If you have found it impossible to fully move on from the time when you were dragged into the criminal justice system, contact me at the Law Office of Kerrisa Chelkowski for a free case evaluation to discuss your legal options for addressing the problem of having a criminal record. I have more than a decade of experience and a background that includes serving as a Bexar County prosecutor and I am ready to help you.
Order of Non-Disclosure
In the event that you are not eligible for expunction of records, you may still be able to meet the qualifications to petition for an order of non-disclosure. Rather than wiping your criminal record clean, non-disclosure places restrictions on the accessibility of your record. Your record will continue to be available to government agencies, but private parties such as prospective employers will no longer have access to that information. Non-disclosure is available to those who have completed all the terms of a deferred adjudication community supervision program.
Sealing of Records
If you were arrested or convicted of a juvenile crime, or if this has happened to your child, it is of the greatest importance that you take the necessary steps to have the records related to the incident sealed. By sealing the record, you can effectively put the entire situation behind you and move into the future as though the incident never happened. You will no longer have to worry about the possibility that the criminal record will get in the way of finding suitable housing, employment or education.
