Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear that you are in a difficult situation.
Are you asking about applying for permanent residency status or coming for a visit?When were you charged?Are you saying you have not been convicted?
Unfortunately, that will not work.
A TRP is for a visit only and only when there are exceptional circumstances. As well, it is rarely given out if the sentence was not completed at least 5 years ago.
You will not be considered admissible to Canada with outstanding charges and if you are convicted you won't be admissible for immigration purposes or or for living there on a visa until you obtain rehabilitation through Canada Immigration and that cannot be at least until 5 years has passed since the sentence has been completed.
So I suggest that you make it clear to your criminal lawyer how vital it is that you don't end pup with a criminal record.
I am sorry I had to give you this answer.
Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
Is there anything more I can help you with at this point in time?
