Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Were you convicted?
There are a couple of ways to do this.
First you can have a criminal record check done on yourself. You would do it through the local police services office. You have to sign a consent and pay a small fee.
The other thing you can do is attend at the courthouse where the matter was dealt with and ask for them to retrieve the file. It will be stored in the archives. You can get whatever you want from the file. You have to pay for the photocopying.
Let me know if you need any further clarification.
You can call the courthouse yourself and also cal the police services office to get a copy of the form.
You should not have to hire someone to assist you but if you do then you should hire a paralegal and not pay a lawyer for this.
