Nevada Criminal Record Sealing Attorney

Expungement Lawyers in Las Vegas & Reno

Are you tired of a mistake haunting you on job, loan, housing, and college applications, license requests, and background checks? A criminal record, whether or not you were convicted or the charges were dropped, can cast a shadow over all aspects of your life. But, it doesn't have to be that way.

In Nevada, criminal records are considered public knowledge, and they are available to anyone who asks. This can interfere with getting a job or housing, and that can be very disruptive. However, it is possible for a court to order records to be sealed. This court order applies to all jurisdictions and organizations, such as the FBI, who have your record on file. However, it is your responsibility to make sure that they are notified that your record has been sealed.

Nevada law allows certain criminal records to be sealed. This allows you to, under most circumstances, legally answer "no" when asked if you were ever convicted or charged with a crime and the record will not appear on the majority of background checks. Having your record sealed can also restore your right to serve on a jury or vote.

How to Get My Record Sealed

Your eligibility to get your record sealed will depend in large part on what crime you committed and your criminal record. For example, Nevada laws require that 15 years must have passed before records for convictions of major felonies can be sealed. During that period you must have committed no other crimes except for minor traffic tickets. For more minor offenses, the waiting period can be as little as two years. If you were charged but not convicted, you can petition to have that record sealed if you are not currently facing other charges.

If the court denies your petition to seal, you must wait two years before petitioning again. You may not petition the court more than two times to have your record sealed.
