In Texas, an expunction means the Court destroys all records of both the arrest and any court proceedings, so they can’t ever be found on any government maintained database by anyone. Any record of the expunction also gets destroyed. It’s like the arrest (and the expunction) never happened. In order to receive an expunction a Petition must be filed with a court that has jurisdiction requesting that all records pertaining to a specific offense(s) be destroyed. If a court finds a petitioner is entitled to an expunction they will issue an Order granting the expunction.

In Texas, a non-disclosure requires all state and federal agencies to seal your record, so the public can ever see it. Law enforcement, jails, and the Department of Public Safety must seal your record and cannot disclose the offense to the general public. In order to receive a non-disclosure a Petition must be filed with a court that has jurisdiction requesting that all records pertaining to a specific offense be sealed. If the court finds a petitioner is entitled to a non-disclosure the judge will issue an Order granting the non-disclosure.

When a customer obtains a free background check our account representatives can only see a subset of information but it is not necessarily a complete picture, because we do not process all of the necessary data through our proprietary technology until a customer has indicated a desire to proceed and given us permission. After a customer purchases a BackGround ReportCard™, our technology thoroughly reviews available information, and also make requests for additional information when prompted by the system.

Orders signed by a Judge mandate that public entities must seal or destroy records but are not disseminated to private companies that maintain databases or conduct background checks. EasyExpunctions offers a service where we will email letters on your behalf to some of the leading background check companies and databases in the United States informing them of the need to update their records. Reputable companies will usually remove the offense information from their records after receiving notice. Texas Government Code §§411.0851 requires that private companies, upon receiving notice of an expunction or non-disclosure, must destroy all information related to the sealed or expunged offense. Companies that do not comply may potentially be held liable for damages resulting from possession or dissemination of information related to a sealed or expunged criminal record. Other states often have similar laws protecting their residents and you should always consult with an attorney about your options under the relevant law. Since EasyExpunctions does not represent you, we will never pursue any legal action against a company that fails to remove information after being provided with notice to do so. If you notice that a company has not removed information within 90 days of being requested to remove the information we suggest contacting a licensed attorney to discuss your options under the law.

Petitions can take months to be processed by a court depending on the case load of the specific court and whether a petition is contested or not. EasyExpunctions cannot control how a court prioritizes petitions and cannot contact the court on behalf of any customer since we do not represent you.

You should be able to view the results of your BackGround ReportCard by navigating to the Offenses section from your Dashboard after you log in. If you cannot view your BackGround ReportCard for any reason, please contact customer service so that a representative can help you.

Non-disclosure is a term used in Texas to describe the process where an individual has a charge sealed. This means information about your offense will not be available to the general public although law enforcement and government agencies will still be able to view it. You can still deny the offense ever occurred on rental and employment applications unless otherwise noted. If you are not interested in getting a Non-Disclosure and having your offense sealed, you should contact an attorney to discuss your options under the law. Sometimes a licensed attorney can achieve extraordinary results like having an offense pardoned so never give up hope.

EasyExpunctions will provide detailed filing instructions via email to each customer when final documents are sent. Sometimes a hearing will be required. We cannot file your documents for you and will not represent you if a hearing is required. Customers can either choose to hire an attorney to file their documents or file their documents on their own, pro se. If you file your documents on your own and a hearing is required, you should show up to the court early with a copy of the documents you purchased from us. Be respectful towards the judge and court personnel and answer any questions posed to you truthfully. Use any opportunity provided to you to explain why you have filed a petition with the court (ie, because you want to have your offense expunged or sealed), how having a clear record will improve your life and job prospects, and do your best to explain to the court that you believe justice would be best served if the court grants your petition because you want to be a productive member of society without these offenses continuing to be associated with you.

Immediately contact an attorney to discuss your options. Most rulings made by a court can be appealed but individuals must act quickly to preserve their right to appeal. There are also strict time limits individuals have to respond when post trial motions or appeals are filed so the sooner you contact an attorney the better. Unfortunately, at this time EasyExpunctions does not sell any documents for individuals to use in filing post trial motions or when appealing an adverse ruling so your best option is to contact an attorney immediately. EasyExpunctions will not be a party to any agreement you enter into with an attorney to represent you. Also make sure to contact customer support and request a full refund under our Money Back Guarantee.

When a judge grants your petition for expungement law enforcement will be ordered to keep your criminal record private, however the record will not be destroyed. You will be able to deny the offense occurred when dealing with the general public, however, there are certain limited circumstances when your expunged record can be used by governmental agencies in the future if you are involved in any criminal proceeding. Additionally, there are some governmental agencies that are exempt from the expungement order, such as the Real Estate Commission and the Department of Insurance, who cannot be compelled by the court to update their records.

If your only conviction consists of a single indictable offense and you have not been convicted of more than two disorderly or petty disorderly offenses you may file a petition for expungement in the county where your conviction occurred. You may also petition to expunge up to two disorderly or petty disorderly offenses. If you have been convicted of two or more indictable offenses in New Jersey or any other state you may not expunge those convictions. In most circumstances you will have to wait 10 years from the time from the time you were convicted, completed probation or were released from jail (whichever is later) before filing your petition. If you commit any disorderly offenses in the interim the court may believe you have not been rehabilitated and deny your petition. In certain circumstances the 10 year waiting period can be reduced to 5 years if the court finds the expungement is in the public interest.

Generally speaking an indictable offense is one that is punishable by six months of jail time or more, even if the judge does not impose a six month sentence if the offense is punishable by a six month or more jail sentence it is considered an indictable offense. A disorderly offense is generally punishable with a jail sentence of less than six months or is a violation of a municipal ordinance. A good rule of thumb is that if your case was heard in Superior Court it was probably an indictable offense while if your case was heard in municipal court it was most likely a disorderly offense or a municipal ordinance violation.
