Approval of Rehabilitation

You can apply for “rehabilitation” to enter Canada if an offense was 5 or 10 years from the completion of your sentence, and can show you are now law abiding. The length of time that must pass is depends on the crime’s severity. Rehabilitation is deemed automatic after ten years, but applying at the border during your trip risks delay and added administration costs.  Our attorneys will examine your record to determine your eligibility.  Working with our Canadian associates, we will ensure your IMM 1444, IM 5476, police certificates, and supporting documentation are completed and filed correctly with the appropriate Canadian authorities.  All cases continue to be monitored from our Minneapolis office.

Temporary Resident's Permit
If you’re not yet eligible for rehabilitation, it is possible to receive a temporary resident’s permit, if Canadian officers feel a situation deserves special consideration. There are a variety of circumstances under which these permits may be approved, but they are always discretionary, and involve added cost if you risk it at the border. Again, apply beforehand to prevent disappointment at the border.  Our attorneys will determine your eligibility and, with our Canadian associates, ensure your application and supporting documentation are filed correctly.  All cases continue to be monitored from our Minneapolis office.

Patents and Trademarks
Have you invented the "sliced bread" of fishing? A modification to that favorite decoy? The first step in determining if your idea is patentable is the most important one and that's why we recommend that all patent investigations begin with an initial free review and then if justified a patentability search conducted on your new idea.    The reason a patent search is so important is that it uncovers the prior art (old patents) that is similar to your invention. This not only allows us to determine the patentability of your invention, but also allows the inventor to compare them. By studying the prior art, the inventor may then be able to "reinvent" his original design. The more unique the invention is the more patentable it is. You may be able to make modifications inspired by the prior art maximizing your chances of success at the Patent Office. Our experienced attorneys will review your gadget and protect your hard work from being "stolen off the hook!"

Hunting and Fishing Organizations
Nonprofit organizations, their managers, and boards of directors have a strong need for legal information. Nonprofit activities involve legal liability and yet many sportsman organizations lack ready access to basic legal information.  Chaudhary Law Office can assist with ongoing, strategic advice to your organization regardless of size, help create a new group, modify an existing group, or assist with necessary documentation to keep your organization in good standing.
