I am being sponsored by my wife (her in Canada, me outside). Will a DUI of 20 years ago ($100 fine and suspension for 1 month) and a misdemeanor ($100 fine) of 22 years ago slow the process?

Hi:

You should not be rendered criminally inadmissible. However, you may want to apply
for a Criminal Rehabilitation Certificate so as to prevent any hassles.

The purpose of the application is for the applicant to establish that efforts have
been made to re-establish himself or herself as a law-abiding person. The applicant
must demonstrate the the risk of further criminal activity is unlikely and therefore
that the person is rehabilitated.

For more information go to http://www.webimmigration.com/criminadmis.html

Yours truly, Ingrid Y. Chen, B.A., LL.B.

You will be required to apply for criminal rehabilitation either prior to, or
simultaneously with, your permanent resident application. The DUI conviction is
sufficient for such.

You are by virtue of the DUI conviction criminally inadmissible to Canada however
provided you have no further offences and given the passage of time you would meet
the criminal rehabilitation requirements and should apply for criminal
rehabilitiation as part of the immigrant process. You will have to complete the rehab
form and provide a number of documents including copies of the conviction, sentence,
applicable legislation and letters of rehabilitation. Ron Beirnes
