What Is a Petition for Non-Disclosure?
There are two main procedures in the state of Texas where individuals who qualify can clear their criminal record. Expungement is the first option, which is primarily appropriate for people whose charges were dismissed or who were not convicted of felonies. A petition for non-disclosure is the other option and applies to individuals who completed deferred adjudication and had the case dismissed.
Procedure for Non-Disclosure in San Antonio
Once we file the petition, you will need a San Antonio criminal defense lawyer represent you in the upcoming hearing in the court. There are other factors which may come into play, such as having been convicted of specific offenses which may disqualify you. This may include kidnapping, injuring a child, or any charge which involves domestic violence or registration as a sex offender.
During the hearing, we must be able to prove the following:
- That you are not disqualified from filing a petition
- That the petition was filed in a timely manner
- That issuing the order is in the best interest of serving justice
- That the defendant entered a guilty or no contest plea
