Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

Q. can I get a non disclosure agreement?
A: You may petition for an order of non-disclosure to seal records of an arrest and its corresponding judicial process that resulted in you being placed in deferred adjudication probation (community supervision). If you completed the probation successfully, and after the requisite statutory waiting period has been satisfied, then you may petition for an order of non-disclosure. An order of non-disclosure does not destroy the records, but rather secures them under seal to prevent the public and private agencies from discovering these records. Nonetheless, the records continue to be available to both state and federal law enforcement agencies, as well other government administrative state and federal agencies. You should contact an attorney to discuss your situation and check if you qualify to file for an order of non-disclosure.
Q. My dad is being detained and charged with reentry and is a federal case now.Is there anything that anybody can do ?
A: You should seek advise from an attorney familiar with reentry cases in federal court and immigration law. A reentry case in federal court depends on many factors to resolve, and to adequately advise you on whether anything that anybody can do to help your father. However, it is important to understand that there are defenses to the accusation of reentry, and you should explore those for your father’s case with an attorney. In short, seek the advise of an attorney to explore the options available in a reentry case as they relate to your unique case situation.
