Are you looking for a fast and efficient way to get a previous conviction set aside? If you live in the state of Nevada, you may be in luck. There are several circumstances under which you may be able to get a previous conviction sealed. This means that it will not show up on your record when it is searched.

Here is a quick rundown of the circumstances under which you could potentially have a previous conviction set aside:

If you have a category A felony on your criminal record, such as a burglary or violent crime, you can get your record sealed 10 years from your date of release from custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever comes after.

If you have committed a category B, C, or D felony, your record can be sealed 5 years after your date of release from custody or your discharge from parole or probation, whichever comes after.

If you have committed a category E felony, your record can be sealed after 2 years from your date of release from custody or discharge from parole or probation, whichever comes after.

If you have committed any gross misdemeanor, your record can be sealed after 2 years from your date of release from actual custody or discharge from probation, whichever comes after.

Many misdemeanor convictions can be sealed from your record within a period of 1 year. Some may take 2. Other, more serious convictions may take up to 7 years to fully seal.

You should note that some convictions simply cannot ever be sealed from your record. It’s a good idea to get in touch with a Nevada legal expert to determine if your conviction may or may not fall under this category.
