New Texas Law on Record Sealing


Effective September 1, 2015, a new Texas law makes it easier for many people to get their criminal record or arrests sealed.  If you have ever been arrested, and completed a deferred adjudication, this law may apply to you.    You do not have to wait the 2 years from discharge to get the charge sealed off your record, and in some cases, it can be done immediately, with cheaper filing fees.  It extends to certain non-violent, non-DWI related offenses.  For example, a Possession of Marihuana deferred, a Theft deferred, POCS, Criminal Mischief, and Fraud charges may be eligible.

If you need to get a criminal charge sealed off your record, contact me immediately to see if you are eligible.
