Default Would my husband be found inadmissible? seriosuly worry!

Hello all,
Would appreciate very much your thoughts on this one.
We are about to submit our application for PR at the HCC in London, so we are filling up the forms.

My husband's Police certificate from his country came out clean, however, he got ''involved'' with the police in his country almost 20 years ago when he was around 16.

One was a time when he received a notice to appear at the police station in order to investigate a theft case in wich he was involved, later called to court and he was found guilty and got a 1 year probation.

Second one, around the same age, similar case, and was only given a fine which was paid.

So, we are talking about 2 different cases, both of them happened almost 20 years ago when he was 16 years old.

He hasn't been involved with any other offences ever since.

My question is, under Schedule 1 Background/declaration question #9 should we click yes under -been detained or put in jail? although he said it wasnt detention and definitely he was not put in jail?

We are really worry and dont know what to write down or where, just want to be as honest as possible and hopefully he is found to be deemed rehabilitated...!

Any help will be great!

Thanks...

You don't need to worry at all - check out the CIC website section on criminal rehabilitation which will tell you that once 10 years have passed from the end of sentence, he'll be automatically deemed rehabiliated.

Agreed not to worry, but the OP should still disclose these circumstances on their application form. As christmasommpa says, he will be deemed rehabilitated in any case, so it will not affect their application. However, being caught in a lie on their application form might.

Thank you all for your replies...
Could you please tell me where exactly should I disclose that information?
The questions only mention about being arrested or in jail, which it didn't happened, so not sure where should I disclose it

Thanks a lot again!

I would suggest it's the very first bullet-point of question 9 "have you ever been convicted of... a crime... in any country".

Of course! you are right, I somehow missed that point...!
thanks...

Now we will have to elaborate the events and try to find out what was the outcome, he is not sure if he was cautioned, convicted or what, specially since he was a youth and was only given a 1 year probation...

Thank you all...

Hi again,
on the same subject...still worry...
So it turns out that it was 4 different cases ( silly things but he was given fines and 1 year probation for one of them) and as mentioned all of them when he was 16 yrs. old and almost 20 years ago....

Now...do I have to send any documentation with the application or only mention them in the forms??

We have no documents at all, and apparently there are no records in the court...

Could it be a problem that he got 4 different offences? What sort of document do we need to supply or should we only provide them with details of those...

More than grateful for your answers...

Hi Lindita

I am no expert on this but I think you just need to tick the box stating 'have you ever been arrested, convicted etc', and just briefly explain what he can remember, e.g when he was 16 years old, theft and received a 1 year probation order. I'm sure that if they need any further information they will write to you. Don't worry, you'll be fine.

Goodluck with the application and let us know how you get on.
