Expunction Defending Rights. Fighting Injustice.

San Antonio Expunction Lawyer

Clearing Criminal Records in Texas

Criminal records from your past can have extensive negative effects on your livelihood. Most jobs use criminal background checks to assist with making hiring decisions, making it difficult to move forward and rebuild your life.

Fortunately, there is a remedy for this. Expunging your records can help you leave the past behind, as though the charges had never happened. As a San Antonio criminal defense attorney, I have the credentials, the proven record of success, and nearly 10 years of experience to help you.

The Right to Expunction

Getting your past criminal records expunged can help you recharge and give you the right foundation to begin a new life. The right to expunction is upheld under Article 55.01 of the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure. If you have been acquitted by a trial, pardoned, or your case dismissed, you may be eligible. Many prior juvenile cases can also be expunged. However, not everyone who has a criminal record may be eligible for an Expunction.

Some important notes about expunctions:

  • If you were acquitted in a trial by a jury or judge, you are eligible for an Expunction.
  • There is a minimum 6-month waiting period (and may last up to several years) before you are eligible to expunge prior criminal offenses.
  • The exception to the above is if a prosecutor dismissed the case for lack of probable cause, false information, or mistake at the time of arrest.
  • If you were convicted of a crime and sent to jail, prison, or probation, then you may not be eligible for Expunction.
  • You may be eligible for a non-disclosure if your case was not dismissed or you were not acquitted by a jury.

An expunction suit is filed in a civil district court in San Antonio, Texas, separate from the criminal action, requiring separate filing fees to be paid to the court. An expunction is a court order to the world to destroy any record of the arrest or the criminal case that they have in their possession. Once the judge signs the expunction order, the order is sent certified mail to any government agency you believe may be in possession of your criminal record.

Ready to Move Forward? Call Me!

Because of the confusing nature of expunctions, it is important that you contact an attorney to evaluate your case. Remember, if you are eligible for an Expunction and are successfully granted one by a judge, you can legally deny the arrest or the criminal offense. The Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC has a stronger roadmap to protect your rights compared to what most local San Antonio criminal defense lawyers charge for these services.

If you feel that you have a case where you may be eligible for expunction, please contact our law office as soon as possible.
