Records Sealing vs. Expungement
Expungement means setting aside a past conviction and dismissing past charges. In the state of Nevada, expungement is not allowed by law, however, criminal records may be sealed. The court has the final decision in whether or not the criminal record may be sealed.
The main difference between expungement and sealing a record is that in a record sealing, the record is not destroyed but it is no longer available to the public. The record may still be available to law enforcement or a court if there is a future arrest. In order to find out whether or not your records may be sealed, speak with Wolfe Law today.
With a criminal conviction it may be difficult to find employment and you may be missing out on a lot of future opportunities. Having a criminal record that is viewable by the public can be extremely detrimental. A mark on your criminal record can make it difficult to find quality and employment and even a place to live. In today's economy, many people are taking the needed steps to seal their records. Wolfe Law can help you determine whether or not you are eligible to have your record sealed from public view.
Contact Wolfe Law so that you can find out if your records can be sealed!
Attorney Paul Wolfe has helped many clients to seal their records successfully so that they could move on with their lives without ongoing repercussions. Everyone makes mistakes. Don't let a past arrest haunt you.
