The procedure for a nondisclosure in Texas starts with requesting records. We need to get records of your arrest. So we know all of the agencies to notify. Once the, is granted with that information, we draft and file the petition and order. Once that’s done, we get a court date. The reason we go to court for a nondisclosure is because they’re discretionary, meaning the judge doesn’t have to grant it.
When we go to court, the judge wants to hear your thoughts. They want to know why they should grant this nondisclosure and seal your criminal history. The judges enjoy this because they’re giving you a second chance. Once that’s done the order is sent to DPS, it goes to DPS and they process it. And then it’s sent around to all the agencies that buy records of criminal history.
Once they receive it, they take it out of their database and your criminal history is sealed. So. If you need a nondisclosure called Blass Law, we can do it. We can do it right the first time.
