Being convicted of a criminal offense can be devastating, leading to time in jail, fines, and a variety of other immediate consequences. However, one thing that many clients do not expect is the repercussions of having a permanent criminal record. Once you have a misdemeanor or felony offense on your record, this information is accessible to virtually anyone with the capacity to look for it.
At The Law Office of Rene A. Flores PLLC, we understand how devastating it can be to have a criminal record. You may have made changes to your life, but your record can still follow and haunt you. We can help you determine if you are eligible or expungement, which is essentially the sealing of your record.
If you are having difficulty leading a successful life, you may want to consider going through the expungement process to protect your record from being accessed. The expungement process may seem simple, but the forms and steps involved can be complex and must be handled perfectly. This is why it is so important to hire a Hidalgo County expungement attorney to represent you and guide you. Once you are approved for expungement, your record will be sealed, preventing it from being accessed if someone looks you up.
The expungement process can take about six to eight months, depending on the circumstances. Hiring a knowledgeable Hidalgo County expungement attorney can help to streamline the process. There are three main types of expungement, which involve criminal convictions for which you were given probation, those which did not involve probation, and those which reduce a felony to a misdemeanor. No matter which situation you need help with, our attorney at the Law Office of Rene A. Flores PLLC can help.
