Expungements Lawyer in Brazoria County

Clear Your Record with an Alvin Criminal Defense Attorney

Many people don't quite realize the implication of having a criminal record until an arrest or conviction haunts them for years or even decades. If you have a criminal charge on your record that you simply can't get away from, you may have legal options available to you. Depending on the circumstances of the charge, you may qualify for an expungement. At the Law Office, of Tom & Ann Stickler, we have worked with many individuals like yourself to clear criminal records and give our clients a new start. Let our Brazoria County expungement attorney review your case to determine if you qualify for an expungement.

What Is An Expungement?

If you have any type of arrest or criminal conviction on your record, you may have felt the long-term implications. For example, employers, potential employers, and others who run a background search on you may learn about your history and deny you opportunities.

An expungement is a chance to clear that record. In the eyes of the law, an expungement essentially erases the arrest or conviction. Law enforcement will be the only agency still able to see your record while employers and other people looking into your background won't be able to. This means you won't be discriminated against by employers, loan officers, or other people based on your criminal history.

Requirements for Obtaining an Expungement

If you have served time in state prison, were convicted of sex crimes against children, or are currently serving time/facing charges, expungement is not right for you. Expungement is not an option for everyone. This is only one method of record sealing or clearing and if we find that expungement is not right for you, we may be able to explore other legal avenues.

There are several requirements you must meet to be eligible:

  • 3 years must have passed from the date of completion of probation, parole, or sentence for misdemeanor charges
  • 7 years must have passed since the date of completion of probation, parole, or sentence for felony charges
  • You must not have been found guilty of any other charge during those applicable years
  • You have completed all of the obligations of your conviction, i.e. paid your fines or served your sentence
  • That there are no pending charges against you
  • That your behavior demonstrates you are not a threat to public safety

If you would like to learn more about whether expungement is right for you, our Brazoria County expungement attorney would be glad to meet with you. We serve clients throughout Pearland and the surrounding areas and can review your circumstances in great detail.
