When are you Eligible for Rehabilitation?

Posted in Criminal Rehabilitation

The following will assist in the calculation of the start date of the 5 year or 10 year period:

Act : the date on which the act occurred

Conviction : the date of the end of the sentence

Conviction and sentence In absentia: not eligible for rehabilitation because the sentence has not been completed.

Imprisonment without parole : the date the term of imprisonment is completed.

Parole : the date on which parole ended

Probation : Is part of the sentence. Therefore, count from the end of the probation period.

Supervised release : the date is based on the termination date of the supervised release.

Suspended driver's license : the period of suspension is included in the sentence. If there is imprisonment, the period of rehabilitation begins at the end of the completed sentence or at the end of the period of suspension, whichever is later.

Suspended sentence : the date of sentencing.

Suspended sentence with fine: the date on which the tine was paid, including any other costs, such as surcharges, court costs, restitution and compensation costs ordered by the Court. In the case of varying payment dates, the rehabilitation period starts on the date of the last payment.

Suspended Imprisonment : the date of the end of the term of imprisonment that was suspended meaning the date the sentence would have ended had the sentence commenced immediately after the sentencing date. For example, in the case where the judge imposes a sentence of one month, but suspends the execution of the order for two years, the rehabilitation period would begin one month after sentencing.

Suspension or probation longer than five years : this could result in a situation where you are eligible to apply for rehabilitation under the Act while still subject to the jurisdiction of a foreign court. Such applications can be submitted, but the Minister may refuse to grant rehabilitation until the applicant has complied with the terms of the suspended sentence or probation. As a second application with a second processing fee would be required, If this your situation, it is recommended that you wait until you are no longer under the jurisdiction of the foreign court.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!
