Canadian Admissibility Issues and Past Criminal Convictions — Part 3: Multiple Old Crimes

Canadian Admissibility Issues and Past Criminal Convictions — Part 3: Multiple Old Crimes

 

Dear Berardi Immigration Law:

When I was in my early twenties, I hung around with the wrong crowd and ran into trouble with the law on a few occasions. I straightened out within a few years and today I lead a clean life. I have had absolutely no brushes with the law for 20 years and I am a devoted family man. I would like to enter the U.S. intermittently for business reasons, but the last time I tried to cross the border I was told by a CBP officer that I was inadmissible because of my past crimes. What do I do now?
