Non-disclosure is similar to expunction but does not afford all the protections of an expunction.
You may not be entitled to an expunction but may still be eligible for an order of non-disclosure.
If you have successfully completed a deferred adjudication, you may be eligible for an order of non-disclosure. However, if you have successfully completed a deferred adjudication on a Class C misdemeanor you may still be eligible for an expunction.
Many times people have called my office wanting to know why a background search revealed a deferred adjudication from 10 years ago. You were told if you completed the probation the case would be dismissed. You further believed this meant that it was off your record. You were wrong! The arrest, charge, and probation are there for everyone to see.
Non-disclosures keep the general public from being able to find the record of your arrest; however, certain licensing agencies, police, and governmental agencies will still have access to your record. Therefore, it is a very important tool to restoring your future. If you have successfully completed a deferred adjudication for a criminal offense, please call me to see if you are eligible for an order of non-disclosure.
