    What is the immigration problem that needs to be resolved?

    #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.

    eclipse, Please be specific. Are you looking for a lawyer who practices US law or Canadian law?

    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.

    So you are having trouble with canadian law?

    #718984

    eclipse,

    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.

    I don’t have personal knowledge of him, but I’ve heard that people in Toronto recommend Mendel Green, of Green and Spiegel.

    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.

    #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.

    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.

    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.

    #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?

    Read this weeks Mishpacha Magazine. There is an article about Wildes, an immigration lawyer in Manhattan.

    I believe he is on the cover.
