Can drunk driving charges prevent me from visiting Canada?

If you have been charged with operating a motor vehicle while drunk, you may have many types of questions about the charges and how they could affect your future. Whether you are worried about a prison sentence, losing your ability to drive, or costly fines, these charges can make life hard for people in Houston, and all over Texas. However, you may want to realize that these charges could affect your life in other ways. For example, they may create problems if you plan on visiting Canada.

According to the U.S. Customs and Border Protection, immigration authorities in Canada may decide to prevent you from entering the country if you have been convicted of drunk driving. Whether you plan on spending time with loved ones who live on the other side of the northern border or want to visit for work or sightseeing, these charges could leave you unable to enter Canada. As a result, it is crucial for you to carefully prepare yourself if you are facing these charges.

For some people who are in this position, it can be hard to understand which steps to take, particularly for those who are stressed out or not very familiar with the legal system. However, the way that a case is handled can have a significant impact on the futures of those accused of drunk driving. It is important for you to remember that no portion of this blog post constitutes legal advice and it was written as general information only.
