Expunctions and Orders of Non-Disclosures
In the State of Texas, an individual has the potential for three types of records: a Traffic Record, an Arrest Record and a Criminal.
Traffic Record –
It is fairly common that a person might have a traffic ticket or two on their record over a period of time and under most circumstances, a traffic ticket conviction will not prevent a person from getting a job, acquiring a loan or getting into an educational program. However, Traffic Ticket Convictions should not be taken lightly as they can cause many unintended consequences like DPS Surcharges, Potential for Driver’s License Suspension, increased insurance premiums and when you are a Commercial Driver, you can potentially lose your job.
It is for these reasons one should strongly consider consulting with an Experienced Traffic Attorney before simply paying a ticket or going to court alone. An Experienced Traffic Ticket Attorney may be able to help you avoid these unintended consequences by working with the court to keep the citation off of your Traffic Record.
Arrest Record –
When an individual is arrested in the State of Texas, whether it is for an alleged Felony Offense or Class C Misdemeanor, that individual now has an arrest record. What this means is that the individuals arrest and the reason for arrest has now become public record and this may cause problems when applying for jobs, loans, insurance and school.
Even if this person was later released and no charges were ever filed, the arrest still remains for the world to see. If you have been arrested and would like to find out if there is a way to remove record of your arrest, call Davidson Law today to speak with one of the Attorneys to find out if you are eligible for an Expunction or Order of Non-Disclosure.
Criminal Record –
A Criminal Record is created for an individual when formal charges have been filed against that person. Even if this person is found “Not Guilty” in a Court of Law or if the charges are later dismissed, the record of the charges still exists on this person’s Criminal Record, which, like an Arrest Record, is accessible by any interested party, including, potential employers, schools, insurance companies and banks.
If you have been charged with a crime and would like to find out if there is a way to remove record of these charges, call Davidson Law today to speak with one of our Attorneys to find out if you are eligible for an Expunction or Order of Non-Disclosure.
