Sealing/Expunging a Criminal History

Sealing (also called expunging) your criminal history means having a "clean" record again and getting a fresh start. Sealing means the difference between having a criminal record that you have to disclose on job applications and background checks, and not having a criminal history at all. Many people don't know that they are eligible to seal their criminal record, even though they are.

Under Nevada law, if a criminal charge has been dismissed, then it is eligible to be sealed immediately. Most misdemeanor criminal convictions can be sealed in two (2) years and some felony convictions can be sealed in as little as seven (7) years. Sealing your criminal history is a straight forward process that completed relatively quickly, if the attorney knows and understands the legal process involved.

If you or someone you know has a criminal history that is eligible to be sealed, it is important to contact an experienced and knowledgeable Criminal Record Sealing Attorney right away. The Criminal Record Sealing Lawyer can assist you in evaluating your eligibility for sealing, obtaining the necessary documentation and filing the appropriate motions.
