Buffalo DWI Lawyer Discusses Going Abroad with a DWI
As an experienced Buffalo DWI Lawyer I occasionally field questions regarding going abroad with a DWI. If you’re charged with a DWI it’s very important that you contact an attorney or advise your current attorney that you have business in Canada or a foreign country. Canada has been known to bar a US citizen who’s been convicted of a misdemeanor DWI, or in certain circumstances, driving while impaired, which is a violation. Sometimes they don’t make that distinction.
In addition, if you want to enter Canada, where a lot of clients of mine have cottages, you have to apply for a Minister’s Permit with the Canadian Consulate. That is a very, very narrow niche, and a very, very particular area of the law that you need to research thoroughly in order to get the right answers.
In addition, a DWI conviction could affect you from entering or traveling to or from other countries, which you certainly should research prior to planning any trips out of the country.
Are you planning on going abroad with a DWI on your record? If so, contact the experienced Buffalo DWI Lawyer John Dudziak.
