Expunction Services in San Angelo

Having a criminal record can be a significant barrier in many aspects of life. Expunction, also known as expungement, is a legal process that allows individuals to erase or seal their criminal records under certain circumstances. This process can provide a fresh start, free from the burden of a past mistake.

Why Consider Expunction?

  • Employment Opportunities: Many employers conduct background checks. A clear record can open doors to job opportunities that were previously out of reach.
  • Educational Prospects: Pursuing higher education or certain professional licenses can be hindered by a criminal record. Expunction makes these goals more attainable.
  • Personal Reputations: A criminal record can unfairly define you. Expunction allows you to reclaim your reputation and move forward with confidence.

How Does the Expunction Process Work in San Angelo, Texas?

Expunction in Texas is a legal process that allows individuals to remove information about an arrest, charge, or conviction from their criminal records under certain conditions. The primary aim is to erase the record as if the incident never occurred, giving individuals a clean slate.

Eligibility for Expunction

The eligibility criteria for expunction in Texas are specific and must be carefully reviewed. 

Generally, you may qualify for expunction if:

  • You were arrested but never charged: If you were arrested but charges were never filed or were dismissed, you might be eligible for expunction.
  • Your case was dismissed or acquitted: If your case was dismissed, or if you were acquitted (found not guilty) at trial, you may qualify for expunction.
  • You completed a pre-trial diversion program: Certain diversion programs, if successfully completed, can lead to eligibility for expunction.
  • You were convicted of certain juvenile offenses: Some juvenile misdemeanors and alcohol offenses may be expunged.
  • You were a victim of identity theft that resulted in a criminal record under your name.

The Expunction Process

  • Review and Assessment: The first step is a thorough review of your case. Our team will assess your eligibility for expunction based on the specifics of your situation.
  • Filing a Petition: If eligible, we will prepare and file a Petition for Expunction with the appropriate court in San Angelo or the relevant county. This petition is a formal request to the court to expunge your record.
  • Notice and Hearing: Once the petition is filed, a hearing date is set. Notice of the hearing is sent to any agencies that may have records of the offense. These agencies have the opportunity to contest the expunction.
  • The Hearing: During the hearing, we represent you and argue the case for expunction before a judge. We present evidence and any necessary arguments to demonstrate your eligibility and need for expunction.
  • Order of Expunction: If the judge grants the expunction, an Order of Expunction is issued. This order legally obligates all agencies that have records of the offense to destroy or return the records.
  • Follow-up: After the order is issued, we ensure that all relevant agencies comply with the order and properly expunge your records.
