There are a variety of requirements under Texas law that must be met to obtain an expunction, the following are some of the specific eligibility standards to obtain an expunction:
- The charges against you resulted in a not guilty verdict;
- There was never a court filing after your arrest, or the court dismissed your case;
- Your offense was underage drinking and you are now at least 21 years old;
- Your offense was a juvenile offense, you went through the juvenile court process, or you fulfilled all of the necessary time obligations before petitioning the court for expungement.
Contrary to popular belief, expungement for juvenile records is not automatic. Unfortunately, the courts do not automatically clear your records after a certain amount of time, or after you’ve legally become an adult. First, a certain amount of time must pass before you can file for an expunction, and you must the file a petition with the court and follow a series of procedures prior to obtaining court approval and the granting of your petition for expunction.
