Expert Immigration Lawyers Assisting Those Deemed Inadmissible to the U.S.

There are several reasons why a person may be found to be inadmissible to the U.S., including past criminal behaviour or health reasons. A finding of inadmissibility can be especially frustrating when the inadmissible person is at the U.S. border, discovering for the first time that they are not permitted to enter. However, there are options for overcoming one’s inadmissibility or obtaining a waiver in certain circumstances. It is important to be aware in advance if you have reason to believe you may be found inadmissible to the U.S. This will enable you and your immigration lawyer to proactively address the issue and establish a case for your entry to the country.

At Garson Immigration Law in Toronto, we have considerable experience helping clients overcome a finding of inadmissibility when attempting to cross into the U.S. We are especially adept at proactively addressing the situation in advance, in order to eliminate surprises at the port of entry. Our experience and proximity to the U.S./Canada border allows us to anticipate the challenges a client may face given their circumstances and demonstrate why they should be permitted to overcome their inadmissible status or be granted a waiver in the alternative.

Reasons a Person May be Found Inadmissible to the U.S.

There are several reasons a person may be refused entry to Canada on the ground of inadmissibility including but not limited to:

  • Medical issues;
  • Criminal issues;
  • National security issues;
  • Likelihood of becoming a public charge;
  • Fraud or misrepresentation; or
  • Past immigration issues.

Overcoming inadmissibility will depend on the reasons behind the decision and the reason you are seeking entry to the U.S. American Customs and/or Border Protection officers or U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will need to be satisfied that you do not pose any risk to the U.S.

Our immigration lawyers are highly experienced in the area of overcoming inadmissibility in the U.S. We will provide an honest opinion if we feel you face an uphill battle and will work with you in advance of your arrival at the border to strategize your best chance of overcoming a finding of inadmissibility.
