Who Can See My Expunged Record?

Bexar County Expungement Lawyer

San Antonio, TX Expungement Attorney

If you have ever been arrested concerning any type of crime, your arrest record can follow you for the rest of your life, even if the charges were dismissed or you were found not guilty at trial. Your arrest record can be found during criminal background checks, leading to embarrassing questions from potential employers, landlords, or school admissions officers, not to mention the possibility of missed opportunities. At Clear My Record San Antonio, we know how you feel, and we are here to help you make your arrest record a thing of the past.

Expungement Clears Your Record Forever

The word "expungement" may sound intimidating, but the concept is quite simple. Also called expunction, it refers to the process of removing all traces of an arrest and prosecution from your criminal history. During a successful expungement, all physical files related to your arrest are destroyed, along with court records and electronic entries in the databases of law enforcement agencies. It is as though the arrest and prosecution never happened.

After an Expungement

If you qualify for expungement and successfully complete the process, the expunged record is gone forever. Although it may take some time for all of the appropriate agencies and private companies who conduct background checks to update their files, when all is done, no one will be able to see your expunged record. When employers, lenders, or other organizations run a check on your criminal history, they will find no record of your arrest. Not even courts or law enforcement agencies can see an expunged record. In other words, you will get the fresh start you deserve.

Orders of Nondisclosure

Should your record not qualify for expungement, you may be able to seek an Order of Nondisclosure. Nondisclosure means that most private employers and organizations will not be able to see your arrest record, but certain entities will maintain access, including law enforcement and education-related agencies.
