Seal Your Criminal Record - Nevada

If you were convicted of an infraction, a misdemeanor, or a felony, you can petition to have your record sealed. Nevada Revised Statutes 179.245, 176A.265,179.259, and 453.3365 state that a person may petition the Court for the sealing of all records relating to a conviction. Once your record is sealed, for employment purposes, you can say that you have not been convicted or arrested for the sealed offense.

To be eligible:

          • You must have completed all terms of your sentence.
  
          • Nevada requires a waiting period before you are eligible to petition the court to have your record sealed - see below:
  
          • A category A or B felony after 15 years from the date of your release from actual custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever occurs later
  
          • A category C or D felony after 12 years from the date of your release from actual custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever occurs later
  
          • A category E felony after 7 years from the date of your release from actual custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever occurs later
  
          • Any gross misdemeanor after 7 years from the date of his release from actual custody or discharge from probation, whichever occurs later
  
          • Any other misdemeanor after 2 years from the date of your release from actual custody or from the date when you are no longer under a suspended sentence, whichever occurs later.
  
          • During the waiting period, you cannot have been convicted or arrested of anything else other than minor traffic violations.
  
          • If your case was dismissed or you were acquitted, you may petition to have your record sealed at any time as long as you don’t have other criminal actions being brought against you.
  
You will be required to provide us with details of your conviction(s). We will assist you in obtaining a SCOPE report which contains your criminal history. The SCOPE report is a requirement for the petition procedure. 

Once we prepare the required documents to seal your conviction, we will serve them with the District Attorney's office for review. Once the District Attorney's office has signed the Order, we will then forward all of the documents to the appropriate court.

As for the timeline, we will prepare and serve the documents within 48 hours from the time we receive all of the required information. However, it will, typically, take the District Attorney and Court about 3 to 6 months, combined, to complete the process. Once the judge has signed the Order, we will forward copies to the appropriate agencies.

We make the process simple and affordable.  Complete the questions below to get started now or Contact us with any questions you may have regarding the process required to seal your records.
