How Do I Know If I Qualify For An Expunction? How Long Will It Take?

Do I qualify?

You may be eligible is the following apply to you and your case:

1. You were found not guilty.

2. You were arrested, but the case was never filed.

3. Charges against you were dismissed.

4. You completed deferred adjudication probation (Class C Misdemeanor).

5. The case was dismissed or "no-billed" by the Grand Jury.

6. Your identity was stolen and the arrested person gave your information.

How long will it take?

The time frame for getting a hearing depends on the schedule of the judge and caseload of the courts. Once a hearing is scheduled and the expunction is granted, the order must be followed within 30 days. Afterwards, any people or entities who reveal the sealed information could be found in contempt of court.

Will it come off completely?

An arrest that has been expunged is deleted completely.

What may disqualify me for an expunction?

You may not qualify for an expunction if the offense for which you were acquitted arose out of a criminal episode, and you were convicted of or remain subject to prosecution for at least one other offense that occurred during that criminal episode.

If you have not completed deferred adjudication for a class C misdemeanor, you may not qualify for expunction.
