I have an arrest or conviction in Texas. Why should I clear or erase my Texas Criminal History? Is it worth is to expunge my Texas criminal record?
Generally, there are two ways to see what potential employers will see on your criminal history background check. First, you can contact DPS and complete a Texas DPS Criminal History Request. You can obtain a Texas DPS Criminal History Report from the DPS Website.
Alternativly, and with less time and expense, if you want to see how potential employers view your history, purchase a Commercial (non-DPS) criminal history report. That way, you can see which offenses may show up.
