Domestic violence battery charge - sealed after 5 years?

Ask a Lawyer

Question

Country: United States of America
State: Nevada

Advice from a lawyer had told my brother that records in his April 2000 domestic violence battery charge would be sealed after five years. Is this correct or does he have to petition this to happen?

Answer

You often do need to ensure it is done--the clerk of the court will confirm for you.
