Can My Las Vegas Criminal Conviction Record Be Sealed or Expunged?

A criminal record can impact your life in significant impacts ways: employment, housing, professional licensing, and credit are just a few of many areas that can be affected. Fortunately, Nevada laws do permit a criminal record to be sealed in some circumstances.

Sealing a record is not the same as having it expunged. Nevada does not have laws allowing records to be completely expunged. When a record is sealed, the record is still available to some government agencies under limited circumstances, but it is no longer publicly available. You will not have to acknowledge that you have a criminal record, even when you are under oath. The record will not show up on routine background checks, so it won't affect your ability to get a job, housing, or credit.
