Why Get A Pardon?
A pardon can essentially wipe the slate clean. It can even allow for opportunities you would otherwise not be entitled to. Even if you do not think your record has impacted your life, it will at some point down the road. In fact, there are a number of obstacles for those with a criminal record. The following are just some ways it can hinder you from the things you want, or the people you care about:
- Custody of Children or Visitation
- Not all marriages, or relationships, are sunshine and roses. Only in some cases are a separation, or divorce, quite amicable. In most cases, however, it can be a real struggle of custody for the children. In such a case, your former spouse or partner could use your criminal record against you in order to obtain sole custody or limit your visitation rights. If you do not obtain a pardon for your criminal record, you could lose custodial rights, be forced into limited or restricted visitation, or you might even be subjected to a non-removal order; which means you will not be able to take your kids with you during holidays. Another important point to remember is that the court will often look into your personal situation as well as that of your new partner or spouse. So, if you are entering into a relationship and your new partner has a criminal record, you might want to encourage them to apply for a pardon in order to protect your relationship with your children and your parental rights.
- Work Reprisals
- A criminal record can also affect your chances of being hired. However, what many people don’t realize is that a criminal record can also prevent you from working your way up and enjoying a higher paying job. If your employer is not aware of your criminal record at the time of employment, you might also be dismissed once this record is discovered. Alternatively, if you are on a temporary contract, this contract might not be renewed due to your criminal record. This is another reason to apply for a pardon. A pardon will show your employer that you are on the right path and they will have no reason to overlook your job application or dismiss your chances for promotion.
- Home Rental
- Property owners who rent out their homes are always looking for good tenants. When they notice that you have any kind of criminal record, they might not approve your application. No matter the kind of offense, landlords take any misstep seriously since their property is one of their greatest assets and a source of income. Obtaining a pardon will ensure that your application in on par with the rest and you will stand a better chance of getting that home you’ve always wanted.
These are just three instances where your criminal record can hold you back and have a serious, long-term impact on the rest of your life. If you are facing any one or more of these circumstances, it is essential that you apply for a pardon.
Parole Board of Canada
To begin, it is imperative to note that only the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) has exclusive jurisdiction to grant, refuse to grant or to revoke a pardon/record suspension. Since a record suspension (or a pardon) is an invaluable tool for those with a criminal record seeking employment or travel opportunities, it is crucial to start the pardon application process early. For federal matters such as these, it can take months of gathering and filling out the necessary paperwork to even begin the filing process. In addition, it is important to keep in mind that the application must be completely free of any errors. Even a small mistake could delay the process by a long time.
