Orders of Nondisclosure

When you are charged with a crime, the records regarding your arrest, charges, and other information pertaining to the event can be placed on your legal record as part of your criminal background. This information is available to the public through the Public Information Act, and it can hinder you from getting jobs or other opportunities. Fortunately, however, you may be eligible to file an order of nondisclosure to seal your record.

There are several instances in which a person may be able to file for an order of nondisclosure. It can be important to seal your records in order to protect your future. For help with orders of nondisclosure, please contact a knowledgeable Dallas expunction attorney from the Law Offices of Mark T. Lassiter today at (214) 845-7007.

How Orders of Nondisclosure Can Help You

If you are granted an order of nondisclosure, it is basically like sealing your criminal records from the public. This can protect you if you are applying for employment, education, or other opportunities that may be affected by a criminal background. However, an order of nondisclosure may not hide your record if it is requested by a criminal justice agency or authorized noncriminal justice agency.

Applying for an Order of Nondisclosure

Your eligibility to file for an order of nondisclosure is based upon your crime as well as the amount of time that has passed since the crime took place. After you complete deferred adjudication community supervision, such as probation, as well as meet other requirements such as waiting a certain period of time, you can file a petition with the court that originally placed you on probation to now grant you an order of nondisclosure.
