Hiring Jeff Kennedy turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life. Mr. Kennedy was able to have my case dismissed. Yes, outright dismissal of the charge!

We did exactly as Jeff instructed and the case was dismissed. There are no words to explain how happy we are with his performance.

Jeff was able to get my twice the legal limit BAC thrown out and he kept me from having an interlock device put on my car.

How Can I Get My Criminal Record Expunged in Texas?

When you were first charged with a crime, you probably had no idea what the consequences would be. If it was a misdemeanor charge, you might have even thought it wouldn’t really affect you all that much. You aren’t the only one who thought that.

A lot of people who get charged with a crime believe the charge will disappear from their records if they aren’t convicted of it. Unfortunately, even when a crime is dismissed, your charges get dropped or are never filed by the prosecution, or you’re acquitted, the charge can remain on your record forever.

Unless you get it expunged.

That’s where an expunction attorney comes in. A lawyer from the Law Offices of Jeff C. Kennedy can help you get that charge removed once and for all. Let’s begin by answering this question: How can I get my criminal record expunged in Texas?

Expunction Orders in Texas

To get a criminal record expunged, you must file a petition for expunction. You must complete the paperwork to set a hearing in front of a judge.

On the petition, you will detail the crime you were initially charged with, what the outcome of your case was, and why you deserve to have your criminal record expunged.

During the expunction hearing, you can argue your case (or your lawyer will), and the judge will make a final decision regarding whether your petition for expunction will be granted. You may also present evidence. Doing so could greatly help your case.

Eligibility for Expunction Orders

A criminal record can affect your life in many ways—especially your employment prospects. However, not every charge will qualify for an expunction.

Many misdemeanor offenses will qualify. A charge for which you were never convicted should qualify. Certain amounts of time must have passed. You should check with your attorney to verify whether your case will qualify you to seek an expunction order.
