In New York or Canada,for passport/landed immigrant issue.Much appreciated.December 16, 2010 1:31 pm at 1:31 pm #718975
What is the immigration problem that needs to be resolved?December 16, 2010 1:33 pm at 1:33 pm #718976
Also, why don’t you apply for U.S. citizenship rather than maintaining a green card status. It gives you far more rights, and since you are in the U.S. for over 20 years you should qualify.December 16, 2010 2:48 pm at 2:48 pm #718977popa_bar_abbaParticipant

eclipse, Please be specific. Are you looking for a lawyer who practices US law or Canadian law?December 19, 2010 1:15 am at 1:15 am #718982
I’m not sure who would know the answer.Basically,my passport is totally up-to-date,but the last few times I traveled(and I haven’t in a few years because of this)they gave me a really hard time at immigration,insisting I relinquish my Landed Immigrant status.That would make it almost impossible for me to move back there,which I really hope to do one day.I was only traveling as a U.S.visitor for 2 or 3 days with a valid U.S. passport.I suspect someone(possibly ex)has something to do with this recent change,but I really am clueless as to how to clear the never-before-a-problem current problem.December 19, 2010 2:09 am at 2:09 am #718983popa_bar_abbaParticipant
So you are having trouble with canadian law?December 19, 2010 2:14 am at 2:14 am #718984
So you currently reside in the US and are a US citizen who previously resided in Canada with Landed Immigrant status. When last visiting Canada they, for the first time, insisted you relinquish your Landed Immigrant status – presumably because you haven’t resided in Canada for a while. Somehow you managed to get around that problem last time, but are concerned you will have the same problem next time you attempt to visit Canada, thus you haven’t visited Canada in a while, and wish to get your Canadian status resolved in a positive manner.
If I understand your situation correctly, you will be needing a Canadian lawyer, not an American one.December 19, 2010 2:29 am at 2:29 am #718985netazarParticipant
I don’t have personal knowledge of him, but I’ve heard that people in Toronto recommend Mendel Green, of Green and Spiegel.December 19, 2010 2:46 am at 2:46 am #718986
Yes I may need a Canadian lawyer.My main wonder is why I had no such problem in the many years before that.I always went in once a year for a few days and they never gave me that problem.December 19, 2010 2:52 am at 2:52 am #718988
BTW, per chance you – or one of your parents – weren’t born in Canada? If you or a parent was (or if one of your parents was a Canadian citizen at the time of your birth), then you are a Canadian citizen (in addition to being a US citizen) and that itself should resolve all your problems.December 19, 2010 3:11 am at 3:11 am #718989
Do you have a phone number or email address for Mr.Green?December 19, 2010 3:52 am at 3:52 am #718990HomeownerMember
eclipse, ask the moderators to delete this thread and then re-post it with the title “Can you recommend a Canadian immigration lawyer?” Better yet, specify which city in Canada. If you’re in Montreal, a referral in Toronto can’t help you.December 19, 2010 4:20 am at 4:20 am #718991midwest observerMember
Canadian Immigration Lawyer: Asher Frankel in TorontoDecember 19, 2010 4:27 am at 4:27 am #718992
Homeowner – she lives in the U.S., and needs a Canadian lawyer.December 19, 2010 4:28 am at 4:28 am #718993
Thank You.Any contact info on Mr.Frankel?December 19, 2010 4:31 am at 4:31 am #718994
Homeowner,since it is my U.S. PASSPORT that seems to bring up some mysterious info on their computers,i wasn’t sure whom to ask.December 19, 2010 4:55 am at 4:55 am #718995
eclipse – Google the names you were given. Those lawyers should be easily findable.
Also, no chance you are a Canadian citizen based on what I suggested earlier?December 19, 2010 5:05 am at 5:05 am #718996

Read this weeks Mishpacha Magazine. There is an article about Wildes, an immigration lawyer in Manhattan.
I believe he is on the cover.December 19, 2010 6:38 am at 6:38 am #718998
