Deferred Adjudication Probations / Dismissals
Nearly 2 million Texans have accepted deferred adjudication probations for misdemeanors and felony arrests with the misconception that once the probation period was over and the charge dismissed that it would not be on their records. Unfortunately this is not the case: the arrest, court and probation remain on your records and available to the public to view forever unless you are granted a petition for non-disclosure through the courts.
Expunge False Arrests / Dismissals
Everyday Texans are arrested by mistake only later to have the charges dropped or are found not guilty or even to go through anger management, drug counseling or some other type of counseling and then have the charges dismissed. Each of these events are permanently placed on your criminal record and are made public for the world to see… even minor offenses like watering your lawn on the wrong day, public intoxication, disorderly conduct, etc… can be viewed by potential employers or landlords, etc.. but now under current Texas laws many of these offenses can be removed legally from your records via expunction.
With background checks becoming so common in today’s world and with the easy access to public records via the internet for everything from job applications, apartment leasing, loan applications and more… if you qualify for Non-Disclosure (record sealing from public view) or Expunction (complete removal of the records), it is in your best interest to get these items off your background report ASAP!
Texas Fresh Start is dedicated to serving Texans by assisting them to clear their police records using legal methods of expunction, non-disclosure/sealing of negative items on your criminal record. You deserve a fresh start. So don’t let past issues stop you from getting that new job, lease, loan or license you are applying for!
