Please note the following IMPORTANT information:

  • Individuals who participate in the pre-screening process (online or in person) between February 1st and February 28th will be given priority at the Pre-Qualification Clinic.
  • At the Pre-Qualification Clinic, participants will meet with volunteer attorneys who will help them complete and file an expunction petition, if eligible.
  • All participants must have photo identification.

How do I know if I MAY be eligible for an expunction?
Per Texas statute, individuals who have offenses on their criminal record 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 were acquitted on your charge by a judge or jury (usually by a finding of “Not Guilty”), or appellate court, or
  • You were convicted of a crime but later pardoned by the Governor of Texas or the President of the United States.

For our expo, only DALLAS COUNTY offenses can be considered.

If any of the above apply, you MAY qualify for an expunction.


You are NOT ELIGIBLE for an expunction if:

  • Your case is STILL PENDING;
  • You were CONVICTED in the case you want expunged, even if you just paid a fine (convictions on other cases do not prevent expunction, unless they are from the same arrest);
  • 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); or
  • You were convicted or received any kind of probation on ANOTHER OFFENSE ARISING FROM THE SAME ARREST.

Information may also be obtained by calling (214) 653-2905.
