British Columbia. I indicated in the beginning that I needed an Immigration lawyer. Are there no lawyers on Just answer.ca that do specialize in Canadian Immigration?. The site asked what type of legal assistance I required. This is the reason I am using this service.My situation is quite unique and I have been satisfied with your help so far but I still need answers to the specific questions I keep asking - Immigration the same as Permanent Resident? Where do I send completed forms Rehab/ARC/Perm Res forms.? As I first mentioned, we hired a Canadian Immigration Lawyer who gave us poor advice. We need help as we have literally tried for years to get the correct answers to our questions. I even called Immigration in Ottawa & they told me to send forms to NEW YORK I said we live in Washington STATE so even I know that maybe we send to Seattle but more than likely Los Angeles? Please help and thank you again,
I was hoping that you would answer all of my questions - Can the Perm Res form be sent to L.A. or does it have to go to Ottawa? Also do I need to do an ARC or no ? I noticed that Justanswer says at this time there are 7 Immigration Lawyers on. Do you think you can help me or should I start with another? If so, do I have to start from the beginning of my questions or can my correspondence with you be transferred to another person ? I thank you for your info re: the Rehab portion of my problems.
Hello Thank you for trying to help. Do you think I should send the REHAB to Los Angeles and also, to Ottawa along with the Permanent Res. Application forms ? As I stated to Debra, the Gov't Immigration website says that if I am applying to immigrate (Perm Res) that I don.t need to apply for Authorization to Return to Canada (ARC) as that would be dealt with at the time they reviewed the Permanent Res forms. The problem that started this mess was that I had not applied for an ARC after receiving a Pardon in Canada. When I went to go to Canada one day the border re-deported me and told me to get an ARC. Debra told me that the old Ministers Permit I Had for 9 years did not give me rehab status although the gov;t was aware of my criminal past in the states in 1969& 1972 and they allowed me to live & work in Canada from 1979 to 1987. Debra also said that Permanent Residence is the same as immigrating? Thank you
