wondering.. is an unknown quantity at this point
Default

I have an interesting situation - I am being sponsored into Canada by my wife. I recently applied for a copy of my criminal record from a jurisdiction I have lived in for 20 years. I know I have a DUI conviction from 1982 - but when I got my record back, it said that there was no record of any convictions.

I was honest on my application and mentioned my DUI on the form.

What does this mean???

Actually the jurisdiction was not the US so the FBI are not involved.

I was only trying to help. I know for a fact FBI checks felonies, and not
misdeamnors. So, as DUI term is used in USA, so I assumed the question was concerning
US police check. I have helped other people here and I dont like to spread any
misinformation. Seems you peronally don't like me writing anything. I dont get it

If you have told them, the should want to know the details. They will = look for
equivalency in Canadian law to determine how serious the crime = was/is. If it was
not pardoned they can still ask.

You may have to provide evidence of rehabilitation and it may be a good = idea to
included it so the officer can determine how far to take it. So = if nothing has
happend since, and maybe you have taken counselling or = have done/are doing other
things that make you a good person, it is = likely rehab, if necessary, will be
granted or the officer can decide.

--=20 Good luck,
