Hello everyone, i moved to america about 3 years ago with my mom from canada. I have a conditional residency right mow, but in a few months it will be perminant residency. Im wanting to move back to canada with my boyfriend to live with my dad, but still want to be able to come to the states since my mom is here. I need to know how hard it will be, if i should wait untill im 18 which i really dont want to do. Also if their is something to do, what forms do i need and how do i do it. Im wanting to move next summer but understand that it can take a really long time could someone give me a hand please?

So what you're really asking for is advice on the US Immigration procedures, so the thread will be moved to the US Immigration forum.

As a former canuck can somewhat understand your situation. To begin with, you came to the US as a minor under your mothers name/application. You are not legally able to anything on your own untill 18. You might be able to cross back into Canada with original Canadian ID and stay with your dad but then you would still need proper papers to re-enter US to visit. Do not believe you can retain American papers while returning to Canada. Speaking with American Consulate would be the thing to do but then again they won't do anything as your still a minor and unable to help without a guardian permission. Sorry, Steve

Shouldn't be moving anywhere with someone you're not married to.
And no,not saying you should be at your age either.

The biggest thing in life is not doing what you want to, but whats best for all concerned.
