Are you a US Citizen that has been refused entry to Canada? We can help.

There are very few US immigration law firms that can match the specific experience we have handling immigration matters for those denied entry to Canada. The immigration lawyers at Richards and Jurusik know how to help US citizens with Canadian inadmissibility.

If you have been refused entry to Canada, were turned back at the border, or are unsure whether you are inadmissible, it is important to consult with a Canadian immigration attorney who can compare the law under which you were convicted with the equivalent law in Canada to see whether the conviction is one that makes you inadmissible. We can also determine whether your offense is one that is considered major or minor criminality.

If you are convicted of an offense, you may be inadmissible to Canada. This may be due to a criminal offense that you committed in the past such as a DUI, DWI, DWAI, OUI, DUAI, possession, assault, a felony, misdemeanor, fraud, or other convictions. If you have been refused entry to Canada, were turned back at the border, or are unsure whether you are inadmissible, take advantage of our specific expertise with Canadian inadmissibility.

Have you been convicted of "Driving Under the Influence" (DUI) or "Driving While Intoxicated" (DWI)? Your drunk driving conviction can make you “criminally inadmissible to Canada,” even if your conviction was more than ten years ago. This means that if you want to get into Canada from the US or any other country with a DUI or DWI conviction, you are more likely to be denied entry. This inadmissibility applies as well to felonies, misdemeanors, and other criminal convictions, all of which may keep you from setting foot in Canada.
