Sealing Records Everyone Makes Mistakes. Not Everyone Knows How to Cover Them Up. We Do.

Nevada Records Sealing Lawyer Serving Reno

In Nevada, if you're convicted of a felony or misdemeanor for domestic battery it is illegal to possess a firearm. A misdemeanor DUI charge can also present serious problems for traveling to Canada and other countries, and, of course, all criminal records can have implications for career prospects, among other issues.

To regain your gun rights and ease travel, your record may qualify to be sealed. Contact the Law Offices of Kenneth A. Stover to discuss your case.

When Can I Petition the Court to Seal My Record?

If the case was dismissed, you have the right to have it sealed upon dismissal. If you were convicted, it depends upon the nature of the conviction. Some offenses, such as felony sexual offenses and felony Driving Under the Influence cases can NEVER be sealed.

Other cases can be sealed after the defendant has completed all obligations to the Court upon sentence and the following time period has passed without a subsequent conviction:

  • Misdemeanors (other than DUI and domestic battery): 1 year
  • Misdemeanor DUI and domestic battery: 7 years
  • Gross Misdemeanor: 2 years
  • Category E felony: 2 years
  • Category B, C, or D felony: 5 years
  • Category A felony: 10 years
