Waiver GrantedPublished: Sep 22, 2006 By: Matthew L. Kolken Source: My Source
We just obtained a waiver of grounds of inadmissibility for one of our clients a 43-year-old Canadian citizen. Our client is the president of Canadian real estate Development Corporation that he started in 1995.
Matthew L. Kolken argued that his client should be allowed to enter the United States despite a series of criminal convictions which took place back in 1981. Our client was convicted of thirteen counts of Theft Over $200.00, contrary to the Canadian Criminal Code, and was sentenced one hundred and fifty hours of community service and received a fine of $800.00.
The Applicant successfully completed his community service and paid the appropriate fine, and has been crime free for over twenty-five years.The waiver was granted for five years, and allows our client to come to apply for admission to the United States for business and pleasure. It took three months for Citizenship and Immigration Services to adjudicate the waiver.
