Texas law allows most people who were convicted of a crime that have successfully completed probation to have their conviction set aside. This means that you are no longer considered convicted of the crime and your firearm rights can be restored. While the court record or arrest record may still appear on some background checks, once the conviction is set aside it will appear as a dismissed case with no finding of guilt.
The judge looks at certain factors to determine if you are rehabilitated, and the judge will then determine if it is in the interest of justice to have your case dismissed. You can read more about the factors that the judge considers in the Frequently Asked Questions sections.
With more than 80 percent of employers conducting background checks, clearing your conviction is a great investment.
The typical case in Texas takes anywhere from 4 to 7 months, depending on county. The courts operate on a first-come, first-served basis, so the sooner you start, the sooner your record is cleared.
Our flat-fee includes all costs. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the District attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.
