Record Sealing in NevadaOnce sealed, your Nevada record will no longer be viewed by the public. It is sealed and removed from state and federal databases. Only a few agencies can view and consider a record that is sealed in Nevada. Those include (1) The State Gaming Control Board and the Nevada Gaming Commission and their employees may inspect your sealed records if your arrest or conviction was related to gaming, to determine your suitability to hold a state gaming license, manufacturer's, seller's or distributor's license or register as a gaming employee. (2) A Nevada professional licensing board may consider a proceeding sealed in this manner in determining suitability for a license or liability to discipline for misconduct. Those are the two notable exceptions.

The Process of Sealing Your Record In Nevada

Nevada record sealing requires gathering evidence, writing a motion, submitting it to the District Attorney (so the DA has a chance to object), and then submitting it to the court for consideration. A hearing before a judge will give you, or better yet, your attorney the chance to argue for the record to be sealed. If the judge grants the request, the judge will sign an order to have all records pertaining to the case and arrest sealed. The orders are sent to every agency who has information about the arrest or case
