    Default Border questions

    I was hoping someone that has been in this situation or now someone who has could help me with some questions concerning driving through Canada. About 15 years ago due to some bad choices on my part I was arrested. This resulted in a differed sentences of 2 separate charges. Due to a local law I cannot have it expunged for another year or so, and was hoping to drive to Alaska this spring. I found info about filing a criminal rehabilitation form but this said it takes sometimes longer than a year. They also mention applying for a trp at the border, but this is up to the border agent if I am granted admission. I know your are not lawyers " well some of you may be but that's not important" I am sure someone can shed some info on the situation for me. The thing that I also realize that being a differed sentence it does not constitute a conviction? Any info would be great even a lead as to whom to contact would be great. Feel free to PM me if you can answer any ?'s and or need more specific info about the situation. I have found some lawyers online that do this but it almost seems like it could be a racket to rip off nervous Americans. Thanks in advance.

    I looked at the requirements for this and almos gurantee I will be denied. I guess their is a process that you can only make your casemate the border?
    I guess i could call a lawyer in washington beong a large city on the border he would more knowledgr than a local lawyer.
