One of the most common questions that arise is ” Will this be on my record?” or “How can you prevent my employer from not seeing my criminal record?” K&M attorneys understand how a criminal charge on your record can have devastating consequences for your life and your future as it affects your employment or your ability to rent an apartment. While a disclosure will not remove the criminal charge from your entire record, it will seal or restrict access to your records, preventing those reviewing your record for the purposes of seeking employment, renting an apartment, or for educational purposes from viewing the charges.
Non-Disclosure is available to those who successfully complete probation or deferred adjudication. Once the nondisclosure order has been entered, K&M attorneys will ensure that the records maintained by the Texas Criminal Information Center (“TCIC”) correctly reflect the extent of public access to your criminal history.
If you have been charged with a crime, contact the experienced criminal attorneys at K&M 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for a free initial consultation to discuss your eligibility for non-disclosure or “sealing” of your records. If you are eligible, upon entry of a non-disclosure order from the court, most of your records will be made available to your current or future employer, your landlord, or your school.
