Non-Disclosures in Texas

Sugar Land Criminal Defense Attorney – (346) 220-3404

Criminal charges on your record look bad to employers, landlords, financial institutions, and essentially any other professional organization that utilizes background checks. Even a single misdemeanor conviction or charge on your record can deter professionals and administrators from accepting your application. When expunction — which effectively erases a criminal mark — is not possible, non-disclosure might be.

At Capetillo Law Firm, we have the legal know-how to help clients concealed their past criminal records from the public through non-disclosure. If you would like to see if non-disclosure might be an option for you, please do not hesitate to reach out to our Sugar Land criminal defense law firm. Our team would be happy to cover what you need to know about non-disclosure during a free initial consultation.

Criminal Non-Disclosure Agreement Eligibility Requirements

Being able to conceal your criminal record from the public and most others who do not have a warrant or law enforcement authority is a huge benefit to your social and professional lives. As such, this powerful legal option is not made readily available to everyone. You must meet a number of prerequisites in order to become eligible to use non-disclosure on your criminal record.

Non-disclosure eligibility in Texas requires:

  • Misdemeanor conviction: Felony convictions cannot be concealed through non-disclosure.
  • Non-DWI offense: Your misdemeanor conviction cannot be related to a driving while intoxicated (DWI) or operating while intoxicated (OWI) offense.
  • Unorganized offense: Your misdemeanor conviction cannot be related to organized crime or similar criminal efforts, such as gang operations.
  • Nonviolent offense: Your misdemeanor conviction cannot be related to a violent crime, excluding simple assault.
  • Nonsexual offense: Your misdemeanor conviction cannot be related to a sex crime, including nonviolent offenses like prostitution.
  • Full compliance: You must have complied with all sentencing requirements, such as serving jail time, paying fines, and completing probation.
  • First-time offense: You must have no previous mark on your criminal record for a conviction, and you must not have been placed on deferred adjudication community supervision for a separate criminal offense, excluding some traffic offenses.
  • Waiting time: Two years must have passed since you completed all of your sentencing requirements before you can file. However, for misdemeanor convictions that cannot be penalized with incarceration, you can file immediately upon sentencing requirement completion.
