Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
When serving the various agencies a motion for expunction in Texas, you need to make personal service using a process server and serve the agency or you can pay the clerk to have the agencies served, not certified mail. This needs personal service.
