If your charges were dismissed, you might be able to get the record of your arrest expunged completely. Find out how to proceed by consulting with a Williamson County expunction lawyer.
While a criminal record can permanently hurt the course of your life, even just getting charged with a crime can hurt your future. While unfair, dismissed charges still leave a record that could cost you a future employment or housing opportunity.
The good news is that if your case meets the necessary criteria, you might qualify for an expungement of the record in question. As far as your history goes, it will be as though you were never charged in the first place, allowing you to move forward with your life free of baggage.
Expunction is a complicated process, however, and it's easy to get something wrong or overlook an important step. By working with a Williamson County expunction lawyer from Hines Ranc & Holub, you can get the expungement you need without the accompanying headaches.
Do I Qualify for an Expunction?
Certain criteria must be met before an expunction of an arrest record will be granted. For one, you cannot have been convicted of the charge in question. If you were, expunction is simply not an option.
If you were granted deferred adjudication probation, you also will not be eligible for expunction. However, you might qualify for a Motion for Non-Disclosure, which your Williamson County expunction lawyer can also help you with.
You can also be barred from receiving an expunction if you were previously convicted of kidnapping, certain sex offenses, and certain domestic violence offenses.
