San Antonio Expungement Lawyer

Having a criminal record can make it harder to get a job, a home loan, an apartment rental, or a professional license. Even if the case was dismissed, it will STILL appear on a criminal background check.

The good news is that Texas law allows criminal record clearing through legal processes known as expungement and nondisclosure.

What is Expungement?

Expungement, also known as expunction, is a legal process that allows deserving individuals to have criminal charges removed from their record.

For more information, you can view the Texas expunction statute here or read our Texas Expungement Guide.

What is an Order of Nondisclosure?

An order of nondisclosure is a legal process that allows a person to seal records regarding a certain charge. This keeps private employers, lenders, and the general public from being able to see that a charge was ever filed. Only certain state agencies have access to these records and non-state agencies will not even know they exist.

For more information, you can view the Texas nondisclosure statute here or read our Texas Nondisclosure Guide.

How Does Expungement & Nondisclosure Work in San Antonio?

An expunction in San Antonio typically starts with a civil lawsuit called a “petition for expunction of records.” The petition is filed with the Bexar County District Clerk. In the petition, your San Antonio expunction lawyer asks the court to order certain state agencies to destroy their records regarding your particular offense.

After the petition is filed with the court clerk and the filing fee is paid, the Bexar County District Attorney’s Office and other interested State entities will have a chance to object to your request. Whether there is an objection or not, the court will schedule a hearing for your request. At this hearing, the court will decide whether to grant your expunction request.

If the request is granted, the judge’s order of expunction will need to be delivered back to the court clerk for filing and served upon every agency who you want to destroy records of your arrest.

What Will a San Antonio Expungement Lawyer Do for You?

#1. Determine Eligibility

A San Antonio expungement lawyer can offer a complete, done-for-you service that can save you time and money. The first thing your lawyer will do is determine if you’re eligible for expunction or nondisclosure. If you are not eligible and file your petition anyway, you could lose your entire filing fee which could range from $300-$475 depending on your case.

#2. Draft & File Your Legal Documents

After determining your eligibility, your San Antonio expungement attorney will draft your petition for expunction as well as an order for the judge to sign. These are crucial steps that require extensive knowledge of Texas expunction law and extreme attention to detail. Once the documents are drafted, your expungement attorney will file them in the appropriate court.

#3. Properly Serve Important State Agencies

While a petition for expunction will clear your record from the San Antonio and Bexar County Courts, it’s no good if background check companies don’t update their records. Your expungement lawyer will serve the expunction order upon Texas DPS (the central criminal database for the State of Texas) as well as other State entities that keep those records and background check agencies that buy criminal record information from DPS.

How do I search for Bexar County Criminal Records?

It’s easy to conduct a search, but getting details of your case will take more legwork. The first step we usually take is searching the Bexar County Criminal Records Database here. For more details on your case, you may need to contact the Bexar County criminal records clerk’s office.
