I was arrested for family violence in Austin TX in June 2012, it was dismissed under deferred prosecution in June 2013. I was told it would not show up during background checks but the arrest record would still be there. I am in the process of looking for an apartment and am wondering if this will show up when they do a background check?

You should contact a lawyer regarding getting an order of nondisclosure. The waiting period is either 2 or 5 years. So, I'm thinking you won't be able to get this done until 2015.
Be careful not to get involved with any more family violence since the punishment steps up and you'll lose the ability to hold the disclosure
