Nevada offers record sealing designed to help deserving people be more productive and get more out of life by sealing records of their convictions. Once your Nevada conviction records are sealed, all proceedings recounted in your record are treated as if they never occurred. Once your records are sealed, you can answer with confidence to any inquiry, including, without limitation, an inquiry relating to an application for employment, that you have not been arrested or convicted in Nevada. Additionally, you are immediately restored the right to vote, the right to hold office, and the right to serve on a jury in Nevada. If you were convicted, you must wait for 2 to 15 years (depending on the offense) from the time you completed your sentence, including probation and parole.
