Don't let mistakes you made in the past prevent you from taking advantage of opportunities in the future.
Many people miss out on jobs because a background check shows criminal convictions from several years ago. That does not have to be the case. You can seal old criminal convictions so that they don't prevent you from losing out on new opportunities.
In general, Nevadans may have their records sealed if they have not had any new convictions for a certain amount of time. The length of time depends on the conviction the person seeks to seal. For example, a person may seal a misdemeanor one (1) year after being released from custody or discharged from parole or probation, whichever is later. For an A felony, a person may seal that conviction ten (10) years after being released from custody or discharged from parole or probation, whichever is later.
Not all convictions may be sealed. For example, sexual offenses and crimes against children may not be sealed. And, if a person has been convicted of any non-sealable offense, none of that person's offenses may be sealed.
Of course, the law is more complicated than everything above. If you are interested in sealing your records and believe you may qualify, give Hamilton Law a call today.
