Can you please clarify if the conviction was for a felony or misdemeanor? Thanks.

I don't think you get your gun rights back. Ever.
In no way am I offering you legal advice, and in no way has my comment created an attorney-client relationship. You are not to rely upon my note above in any way, but insted need to sit down with counsel and share all relevant facts before receiving fully-informed legal advice. If you want to be completely sure of your rights, you must sit down with an experienced criminal defense attorney to be fully aware of your rights.
There may be some complex issues here. First, from your facts it is not certain that you were ever "convicted" of a domestic violence crime. If you entered into a diversion agreement, for example, the charges may have been dismissed. There are also both federal and state laws that need to be considered relative to your particular case. If you right to own firearms are important to you, and giving your history I imagine they are, you will want to consult with an attorney. They will be able to pull your records and do the research to give you an answer based on your circumstances.
