Travis County Expunction Expo

Sat April 27 @ 8:00 am | 5:00 pm

Free

Removing old arrest records from your criminal history can be difficult without help. The 2024 Expunction Expo will help Travis County residents clear their old arrest records. Not all arrests qualify for clearing, but it is usually helpful to try. Why? Individuals with arrest records often find it hard to obtain jobs, housing, or financial aid for college.

Clearing an arrest record is called “expunction” in Texas. The partners in the 2024 Expunction Expo are committed to helping Travis County residents determine if their records qualify for expunctions.

Only Travis County crimes can be considered for expunction at this Expo.

According to Texas law, your case MAY qualify for an expunction if any of the following apply:

  • You were arrested but a charge was NEVER FILED or was no billed by the grand jury,
  • You have a criminal charge that was DISMISSED,
  • You completed a DIVERSION PROGRAM, such as Pretrial Diversion, Drug Court, etc.,
  • You were ACQUITTED on your charge by a judge or jury (usually by a finding of “Not Guilty”), or appellate court.
  • You were convicted of a crime but later PARDONED by the Governor of Texas or the President of the United States.

If any of the above apply, your case MAY qualify for an expunction. Felony cases that may qualify based on one of the categories listed above can be discussed with Paul Quinzi at the Travis County Law Library or an attorney for further consultation.

According to Texas law, your case does NOT qualify for an expunction if any of the following apply:

  • Your case is STILL PENDING;
  • You were CONVICTED in the case you want to be expunged, even if you just paid a fine (some unlawful carrying a weapon conviction are exceptions to this rule).
  • You were placed on PROBATION, COMMUNITY SUPERVISION, or DEFERRED ADJUDICATION for any felony or Class A or B misdemeanor you want expunged, even if your case was later dismissed (Class C deferred adjudication is the only exception. Deferred Prosecution qualifies for an expunction too, IF the conditions have been completed).

THE APPLICATION DEADLINE IS FRIDAY APRIL 5TH.
