Expungement & Non Disclosures in Texas
It is not hard to understand why both expungement and sealing are confusing. Both legal remedies are similar in that they alter your record, but there are distinct differences.
Expungement, also known as expunction, refers to the complete elimination of your criminal record. This means the file, and all pertaining documentation, is destroyed. Your record is if it never existed. This is the clean slate option. However, the ability to get an expunction is limited.
Record sealing, or non-disclosure, limits access to your record and makes it harder for anyone to know about your criminal history. The documentation and file are still available, however. A government agency or a court order can open your record for view.
