We receive hundreds of thank you letters each month from people whom we’ve helped to obtain a Canada Pardon or US Entry Waiver (I-194).
Many of the criminal records are very old and have come back to haunt the person in one way or another. Usually the criminal record is discovered in a criminal background check for employment purposes or when travelling across the border to the US.
Even if you have received a criminal charge that has been dismissed, withdrawn, stayed or conditional or absolute discharge, it can still hold you back from certain opportunities and will limit your personal freedom.
Here is a letter we received from a client we helped to get a Canada Pardon for a theft charge:
“I never thought that after 30 some years that a petty theft of less than $2 would come to haunt me.”
“The incident happened in my twenties, now I am in my fifties and never been in trouble since that time.”
“I left Canada and was working a few years in the US when I applied for a position at a police agency. I was almost hired when my candidacy was rejected because of that old theft charge. I did not get disappointed because I turned to a real estate business, made a lot of money, ”
“But when the real estate crash happened, I then realized I had to do something about that record.”
“I called a few lawyers to do my Pardon but their fee was like $3,000 to $5,000. I decided at the end to call the Canadian embassy and they referred me to Pardons Canada. Your fee was significantly more reasonable and you did the job quickly and efficiently.”
