I was placed on deferred adjudication for a non-violent offense as an adult 10 years ago. waited the 5 year grace period after probation discharge and dismissing of proceedings to get an order of non-disclosure sealing my record. Public records do not show anything on me however this information can be seen by selected govt. agencies and regulatory bodies.
Legally- I could of answered no to any criminal arrest, and disregard filling out the CHL-78C - and submitting certified dispositon, discharge/dismissal of proceedings, and order of non disclosure- BUT - I did not want to give DPS any excuse to delay the process, or give them any perception of me giving misleading information- so I disclosed everything anyway. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE IN A SIMILAR SITUATION TO DO THE SAME. below is my application timeline:
App submitted : 5/8/17
Supporting documents: 5/10/17 ( with the exception of order of non-disclosure)
Order of ND submitted: 5/11/17 ( once a record has been sealed, it takes some time for arresting county to unseal the file and provide documents)
Status progress viewable: 5/17/17
Everything is green with the exception of :
Fingerprints: Under review
Background check : under review
I plan on calling the RSD today to confirm that they have recieved my document submittal of non disclosure , once verified ( hoping to avoid a letter for more information) I will post more as status changes.
EDIT: I called RSD and have confirmed that they do have all of my 78C documentation. I Called the same day the status the viewable on the website- so hopefully I will not get a letter or any delays!
Checked this morning and Background check is complete and I am print pending! I live in Austin so hopefully I will have it in mailbox by EOW! So complete process from full documentation submitted to print pending: 12 days!
Congrats!!! I'm sure that because we submitted our dispositions upfront with our supporting documents that definitely expedited the whole process, without having any delays or letters. We are extremely lucky that we didn't end up having to go the whole 60 days, 90, or 120, etc. because we have one misdemeanor on our records. Correct preparation is the key. I'm sure if we never did that, then we would be getting some letter at 60 days and then end up still waiting another couple of months on top of all that. Who knows though, because I read of some people doing it how we did, and they are still waiting at the 3 and 4 month mark...
Congrats again man, and now it's on to the mailing game. Luckily, that wait is a lot shorter. Mine turned to mailed in 3 days. It should take a couple of days before it says mailed and one or two days to receive it based on where you are. I think you should get yours in a day since you're in Austin. I'm in Dallas and got mine in 2 days. I just got mine in the mail and plastic in hand yesterday!
