Positive Decision – Criminal Rehabilitation Application
Last week our office received a positive decision on a very challenging application for criminal rehabilitation. The applicant hopes to one day be sponsored to Canada to join his wife and sons who are Canadian citizens. However, a criminal act he committed decades ago rendered him criminally inadmissible to Canada. The first step in reuniting this family was to convince Citizenship and Immigration Canada that he is rehabilitated, thereby overcoming his inadmissibility. Although it was a challenging application to prepare, as his immigration history is complex and spans many years, we were ultimately successful and could not be happier for this family.
