Nevada Records Sealing Lawyer Serving Reno
Everyone Makes Mistakes. Not Everyone Knows How to Cover Them Up.
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:
(other than DUI and domestic battery): 1 year
- Misdemeanor DUI and domestic battery: 2 years
- Gross Misdemeanor: 2 years
- Category E felony: 2 years
