A person may file a Petition for Non-Disclosure with the Coryell County Clerk’s Civil department under conditions set out in Subsection (e) of Section 411.081, Government Code. The petitioner is required to pay the filing fee of $350.00 for a regular civil lawsuit at the time the petition is filed. The filer will need to contact the County Court at Law coordinator set a hearing.
Please visit https://www.txcourts.gov/rules-forms/orders-of-nondisclosure/ to access the OCA forms for Non-Disclosure.
A Petition for Non-Disclosure is not the same as a Petition for an Expunction. Under certain circumstances, a person who has been arrested for a misdemeanor is entitled to have all records related to the arrest expunged (destroyed). Petitions for Expunction are filed through the District Clerk’s office.
