TFDP provides free legal assistance to people who are entitled to criminal record clearing under the law.
The Criminal Record Clearing Assistance project is currently not accepting new clients. Intakes will be on hold until further notice. In the meantime, if you require assistance with criminal record clearing, you can apply for help with the UT Law Assisted Pro Se Expunction Pro Bono Clinic. Information is below.
Do you have:
- An arrest that was never charged?
- An arrest where charges were dismissed?
- A deferred adjudication?
- A first-time misdemeanor conviction?
If your answer to any of these questions is "yes," you may be eligible to clear or restrict a Texas arrest record.
