Felonies are the most serious crimes, so these do not just come off your record after a matter of years, generally speaking. Some felonies like DUI do actually get automatically removed, but this is a rare exception. Most other felonies stay on your record until it is expunged by court order. Getting a court order for a felony to be expunged can be a long and arduous legal process.

The length of time that a felony stays on your records depends on the severity of the crime. Each type of felony will have a degree ranking that signifies the seriousness of the crime.

The period that a felony gets to stay on record depends on the type of felony that was committed. It also depends on the level of severity. Basically, if it is not expunged or the records are not sealed, it stays on your record forever.

The length of time that a felony would stay on a person's record is forever. A felony is a permanent part of your background, unless expunged by legal authority.

A felony generally stays in one's records unless it is applicable for expungement or sealing of the felony of records. In the United States, the expungement laws differ for each state. For instance in New Hampshire, a class A felony record may be eligible for expungement after 10 years after the convict has met all the requirements.

It depends on the laws of your state. Misdemeanor and petty charges are easier to expunge. Learn more at http://felonyguide.com/How-long-does-a-felony-stay-on-your-record.php.
