How long will the seal period last?

The seal period could last or be extended for as long as the Government needs to investigate the case. Sometimes the seal period could last several years. The seal may be extended because the case is complicated and merits a detailed investigation. Sometimes the seal is extended because the Government is conducting a parallel criminal proceeding, which may take precedence over the “civil” action.
