Visitor: I want to travel to the US as my father in-law is very ill, and is at end stage Alzheimer’s disease. I want to travel and support my wife and her family during this horrible time.
I am not that person anymore and have a very hard time living with the fact that I’m a criminal by law. I only have one crime on my record and it’s that I have a sexual offense record, more specifically I was charged for “invitation to sexual touching with a minor”.
I was convicted and charged on Feb. 15, 2018. I served time for 60 days out of 90 due to good behavior. I also did one year of probation and counseling. I am very much recovered from my past and have acknowledged my one time mistake since the first day I was charged. I committed this crime prior to being married. I am married now and appreciate and take life at a completely different perspective. I’ve been employed as a manager, now regional manager at a retail store for nearly two years now.
I am a completely different man, and just want a second chance without the criminal label by law. I’d do anything to be able to travel to visit my in-laws in the states. I owe it to my wife to do this, and to my family.
With that said, what are my chances of successfully being able to get a pardon/US waiver?
Pardons Canada: You cannot get a pardon for this type of offence in Canada anymore since the laws were changed in March of 2012. You cannot get a US Waiver anytime soon as it will be rejected by the Americans. You will need to be out of trouble for a period of at least 7 years from the end of your punishment to even have a chance.
