Clean Your Past Orders of Non-Disclosure

Orders of Non-Disclosure



If you are not eligible for a record expungement in Texas, you may be eligible to petition the court for an Order of Non-Disclosure. Once approved, this type of order from the court seals your criminal records. Once your records are sealed, you have the legal right to deny or not disclose the criminal history in those records. The court order will prevent those records from being made accessible to the public, which means that anyone who searches for, compiles, or disseminates such information will not be allowed access to your records. However, your records will remain available to state criminal justice agencies, state law enforcement agencies, and to certain Texas state agencies. The information can be used by law enforcement or the courts in any future criminal investigation or proceeding.

You may be eligible to petition the court for an Order of Non-Disclosure if you were placed on deferred adjudication for certain Class A or B Misdemeanors, and certain felonies, and if you successfully completed the supervision term, and the charge was dismissed. You then may need to meet a waiting period requirement, which will vary depending on the nature of the offense. Some misdemeanors have no waiting period; others may have a waiting period of two years. A five-year waiting period is required for all felonies. Some offenses do not allow for eligibility whatsoever, such as murder, aggravated kidnapping, sex offenses, and other crimes of family violence. To determine if your case meets the eligibility requirements, we advise you to consult with our skilled staff at the Downey Law Firm.


A Petition for an Order of Non-Disclosure must be submitted to the courts which will request that a hearing be held to determine if the order should be approved. Our attorney will prepare all of the documents for your case, attend the hearing with you, and provide all of the legal guidance needed.
