San Antonio Non-Disclosure Lawyer
Clearing Your Criminal Record
If you received Deferred Adjudication probation on a prior criminal case and successfully completed it, you may be eligible for a Non-Disclosure. Roberto Ambrosino, a criminal defense lawyer in San Antonio, may be able to help you.
Like an expunction, there is usually a waiting period, ranging from two to five years from the date your case was dismissed to obtain a non-disclosure. A non-disclosure seals your criminal record for a particular case, making it only visible by certain government agencies, and will not appear in most private criminal background checks.
Those Able to Still View Non-Disclosed Crimes
A criminal justice agency may disclose criminal history record information over a non-disclosure to the following agencies, including but not limited to:
- The State Board for Educator Certification
- Any school district
- The Texas State Board of Medical Examiners
- The State Bar of Texas
- The Department of Family and Protective Services (CPS)
- The Board of Nurse Examiners, a hospital, fire department
- The Texas Health and Human Services Commission
Crimes That Are Not Eligible for Non-Disclosure
Unfortunately, some crimes are not able to be non-disclosed, even if you did receive deferred adjudication and completed it successfully. Under Section 411.08 of the Texas Government Code, a person is not eligible for a non-disclosure if the person has been previously convicted or placed on deferred adjudication for:
- Indecency with a Child
- Sexual Assault
- Aggravated Sexual Assault
- Prohibited Sexual Conduct
- Aggravated Kidnapping
- Burglary of a Habitation with intent to commit any of the above offenses
- Compelling Prostitution
- Sexual Performance by a Child
- Child Pornography
- Unlawful Restraint, Kidnapping, or Aggravated Kidnapping of a person younger than 17
- Attempt, Conspiracy, or Solicitation to commit any of the above offenses
- Capital Murder
- Injury to a Child or Elderly
- Abandoning or Endangering a Child
- Violation of a Protective Order
- Stalking; or
- Family Violence offenses.
The Law Office of Roberto Ambrosino, PLLC handles non-disclosure cases for a fee. There is not a reason why you should wait to have your criminal record sealed if you think you might be eligible.

"I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney."I contacted Mr. Ambrosino about an issue we were having about two months ago. He was very responsive and always easy to communicate with. If ever I had a question during the process, he was quick to respond with an answer. He was kind enough to even email me while on vacation with his own family which showed he truly cares about his clients. Mr. Ambrosino took the time to educate me on the current laws and the court process. He sent me all the court filings and paperwork for my own files and always kept me up to date. In the end we received the outcome we were hoping for and I attribute that to Mr. Ambrosino’s hard work and knowledge. I would highly recommend him if ever you need an attorney. Thank you for your help Mr. Ambrosino.- C. S.
