Admissability Help

Post Posted: Wed Jan 18, 2006 1:45 am

I was wondering if anyone could give me some advice please.
I am eager to move to Edmonton to be with my Canadian partner...we dated while he lived here in New Zealand, but had to return home. We want to continue our relationship by living together, so decided I should move there to be with him.
Problem: I have and old conviction for drink driving (for which I am incredbily sorry), and have been told by the embassy that I am inadmissable until 2009 when I can apply for Criminal Rehabilitation , or get married and then apply to the courts. I dont want to wait until 2009, and dont want to have a marriage of convenience, although I am sure that my partner and I will eventually marry, i want to do it for the right reasons. Is there any way I can get around the inadmissability issue? I have reference letters from everyone, including our mayor, but it seems I can either wait until 2009 or get married. Is there another way?
I just want to say too that I know what I did was wrong, and I am incredibly sorry for it, so please dont post anything about what an awful person I am!

Thanks

Charliegirl
