How To Seal a Criminal Conviction In Nevada

Nevada law (NRS 179.245) allows for those convicted of most crimes to have their record sealed after specified waiting periods have been met. Once sealed, the conviction and arrest comes off of your record and you can truthfully say that you were never convicted or arrested.

To be eligible to seal your conviction in Nevada, you must have satisfied the waiting periods, which start from the date you are discharged from probation or parole, as listed below:

  • Category A felony, a crime of violence pursuant to NRS 200.408 or Burglary pursuant to NRS 205.060: 10 years
  • Category B, C, or D felony: 5 years
  • Category E felony or Gross misdemeanor: 2 years
  • Misdemeanor for a Battery that constitutes domestic violence under NRS 33.018, Driving Under the Influence under NRS 484C.110 or 484C.120, or Welfare Fraud under NRS 422.540, 422.550, 422.560, or 422.570: 7 years
  • Misdemeanor Battery (NRS 200.481), Misdemeanor Harassment (NRS 200.571), Misdemeanor Stalking (200.575), or Protection Order Violation: 2 years
  • Any other misdemeanor: 1 year
  • Arrest without a conviction after dismissal or acquittal: no waiting period

You must not be convicted of any crimes during the waiting period. A person is also ineligible for record sealing if they are under indictment and have any charges pending.

Upon receiving a petition to seal your records, the court will notify the law enforcement agency that arrested you and the prosecuting attorney. The prosecuting attorney will be allowed to testify and present evidence at the hearing regarding your records being sealed.

Certain Crimes Not Eligible To Be Sealed In Nevada

The following convictions and the records relating to them are not eligible to be sealed:

  • Crimes against a child per NRS 179D.0357
  • Sexual Offenses listed under NRS 179.245 subsection 7(b)
  • A violation of NRS 484C.110 or 484C.120 that is punishable as a felony (Driving Under the Influence)
  • A violation of NRS 484C.430 (Driving Under Influence resulting in death or substantial bodily harm)
  • Homicide that resulted from driving under the influence
  • A violation of NRS 488.410 that is punishable as a felony (Operating Watercraft while under the influence)
  • Homicide or serious bodily injury that resulted from operating a watercraft under the influence

No Waiting Period - Sealing An Arrest With No Conviction

Nevada law (NRS 179.255) allows for those who have either (1) been arrested and the charges have been dismissed, or (2) been acquitted of the charges, to have their record sealed immediately. Once sealed, the arrest comes off of your record and you can truthfully say you were never arrested.

If you have been arrested and the charges have been dismissed or you have been acquitted of the charges, you are eligible for record sealing relief as soon as the case is dismissed. If you were convicted, you must have satisfied the waiting periods listed above.

NV Record Sealing (Expungement) Process & Cost

The process of sealing a Nevada criminal record is defined by statute, but there are also local rules that vary by court. In general, the process starts with obtaining the court records and accessing the case to see if extra evidence will be needed. Once that strategy of the case is set and any needed evidence is gathered, we file a motion with the convicting court. We also serve copies of the motion and all evidence on the district attorney. We also provide notice to all government agencies that have any records that may indicate that the case existed, for instance, the probation department or jail.

If your case is in Clark County, the District Attorney requires that all your eligible cases in Clark County be sealed at the same time. There are additional fees for each case to be sealed, but only one filing fee will be required.

Depending on the case, the court will hold a hearing. One of our expert Nevada lawyers will attend the hearing and fight for your case or cases to be sealed. The judges in Nevada have lots of discretion when it comes to sealing records. So, it is important to have someone who is skilled and experienced at arguing for records to be sealed.

Take our confidential online eligibility test and determine if you can have your past Nevada record sealed. You can also call us for a free consultation.

On most Nevada record sealing cases, we offer a money-back guarantee.

Our exclusive Expedited Record Clearance Update service allows us to have the leading background check companies reflect changes to your criminal record in less than 14 days, instead of months and even years like our competitors.

Please note, Courts and/or District Attorneys (Clark County) may require that all eligible offenses in the same jurisdiction be sealed at one time.

It is $425 for each additional eligible conviction and $275 for each eligible arrest without conviction within the same jurisdiction. This is only applicable to DAs/courts/jurisdictions that require all cases be filed together. Not all courts/counties permit cases to be filed together and those will have separate case fees.
