Nondisclosure Lawyer in Fort Worth
Seal Your Criminal Record
If you’ve been convicted of a crime, you may still face a harsh stigma for the rest of your life. You may have difficulty finding a job, applying for housing, or even getting a loan. Getting an order of nondisclosure, also known as having your record “sealed”, is the process whereby your criminal record becomes inaccessible to the general public. When you get an order of nondisclosure, the only people who are able to see that you even have a criminal record are government employers, state and federal authorities, and law enforcement.
Interested in finding out if you qualify to have your record sealed? I can offer my insight as an experienced Fort Worth nondisclosure attorney. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to have your criminal record removed from the public eye, offering a chance at a brighter future.

Can You Get an Order of Nondisclosure?
Although the laws allowing for orders of nondisclosure are intended to give some criminal offenders a chance to hide their records, there are certain criteria that must be met in order to obtain one. For example, if you were convicted of DWI, you can petition the court for an order so long as you have done two things. First, you were not involved in an accident. Second, you did not have a blood alcohol concentration of .15 or higher. The waiting period after a DWI is 2 years after probation ends if your vehicle was equipped with an interlock ignition device for at least 6 months. If no interlock ignition device was equipped, then the waiting period is 5 years after probation ends.
You will not be eligible for an order of nondisclosure if you’ve been convicted of:
- Capital murder
- Endangering or abandoning a child
- Trafficking or continual trafficking of people
- An offense that requires a sex offender registration
- An offense related to family violence or sexual assault and abuse
