Sealing Of Records By Order Of Non-Disclosure
Legally deny an arrest, a charge and a sentence of deferred probation.
A criminal case is a matter public record for anyone to view, such as employers,
schools, apartments, and credit agencies. A criminal record can even be viewed if it was dismissed
after the completion of probation.
People that are not eligible for a record expunction, may still be able to obtain an Order Of Non-Disclosure. Once the
records have been sealed, they may then legally deny the existence of an arrest, charge and sentence
of deferred probation.
Each petition for an order of non-disclosure is judged on its own
merit. Do you qualify to seal your records?

Sealed For Non-Disclosure?
An Order of Nondisclosure is a legal procedure which a court order can be obtained under certain
circumstances that prohibits government agencies from disclosing the existence of any record associated
with the arrest, prosecution and deferred probation sentence. This record sealing is available for
both misdemeanors and felonies. Be sure to view the record sealing FAQs for the state of Texas.
Certain crimes require a five
year waiting period in order to request an order Of nondisclosure such as:
- Unlawful restraint or transport
- Indecent exposure or public lewdness
- Assault, deadly conduct, terrorist threat
- Family offenses such as leaving a child, aiding suicide, harboring a runaway child, bigamy,
enticing a Child, advertising placement of a child
- Unlawfully carrying a weapon, unlawful possession of a firearm, possession of prohibited Weapon,
unlawful transfer of weapons, hoax bomb, and making firearm accessible to a child
- Disorderly conduct, riot, obstructing a highway, cruelty to animals, dog fighting, and
destruction of a flag, disrupting a meeting or procession, false alarm or report, silent or abusive
calls to 9-1-1, interference with an emergency telephone call, harassment, abuse of a corpse
In most cases, a person can petition the court for the sealing of a record by Order Of Nondisclosure
immediately after successful completion of your deferred adjudication probation. Certain offenses
cannot be sealed with an Order Of Nondisclosure.

employers and governmental agencies. Fortunately Texas law allows for the sealing of most Juvenile
