Houston Expunctions of Criminal Records – EXPUNCTIONS
If Houston criminal defense attorney Carl Haggard or The Haggard Law Firm obtains a Dismissal or Not Guilty trial verdict in the charge against you, you may be eligible for an Expunction.
What is an Expunction?
An Expunction is a civil lawsuit to obtain the expungement or deletion of all computerized and paper references to your name and the referenced charges, including the arrest. We sue for this expungement in the county and state agencies which carry such information.
How long will an Expunction take?
Anywhere from 6 months to a year and beyond in some more complicated Felony Expunctions that are contested by the State.
Are payment plans available?
Yes, the Houston criminal defense attorneys at The Haggard Law Firm will tailor affordable monthly payment plans upon request for Expunctions.
Will I have to go to court?
Usually, no court appearances on the part of the client are necessary.
Will I have to come into the office to get started?
No. We can handle everything via phone, fax or email.
Does the attorney who obtained the Dismissal have to do the Expunction?
No. Even if your case was dismissed through another firm, The Haggard Law Firm can handle your Expunction [where eligible]. To find out whether or not your Dismissal is eligible for an expunction, call our office.
Can I get my Deferred Adjudication case expunged?
The Dismissal that comes after a Class A or B Misdemeanor Deferred Adjudication probation does not qualify for an Expunction. However, this type of dismissal may be eligible for sealing through a Motion for Non-Disclosure.
