Understanding the Challenge

The Impact of a DUI Record

A DUI conviction can have lasting consequences, affecting various aspects of your life, including travel. Canada, like many other countries, takes DUI offenses seriously and may deem individuals with such convictions as criminally inadmissible.

Assessing Your Inadmissibility

Understanding Criminal Inadmissibility

Criminal inadmissibility refers to a situation where an individual is barred from entering Canada due to their criminal record. A DUI conviction falls under this category, potentially making the entry process more complex.

Determining Your Admissibility

Falcon Law PC helps individuals assess their admissibility status by examining the details of their DUI conviction. Factors such as the nature of the offense, the sentence imposed, and the time elapsed since the completion of the sentence play a crucial role in determining admissibility.

Temporary Resident Permit (TRP)

A Temporary Resident Permit is a document that allows individuals with criminal convictions, including DUIs, to enter Canada for a specific purpose and duration. Falcon Law PC assists clients in applying for TRPs, providing guidance on the necessary documentation and procedures.

Criminal Rehabilitation
