Since 1997, ACF Pardons & Waivers founder Arlene Chee Foon has been helping Canadians obtain their Criminal Pardon, now called a Record Suspension and U.S. Entry Waiver.  Arlene is a Paralegal licensed by the Law Society of Ontario, and is a partner in the firm ACF Legal Services, which she also co-founded in 1997.

Arlene is an accredited fingerprint technician, certified to take and submit electronic fingerprints by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. 

In 2009, Arlene founded the company E Scan Fingerprinting and now takes electronic fingerprints for her Record Suspension and U.S. Waiver clients, as well as many of her competitor's clients.  E Scan Fingerprinting is partnered with ClearNeed Information Systems, which is among the leaders in providing fast and secure electronic fingerprinting submissions.

Arlene has compiled a team of professionals dedicated to customer service and processing record suspension applications in the most efficient and effective manner possible.  All information provided is held strictly confidential and all record suspension and waivers are subject to strict policies which ensure the protection of all ACF Pardons and Waiver clients' personal information.

Waiver applications since 1996.  Our mission is to serve our  community with honesty, integrity and professionalism.   We are located in Barrie, Ontario and are here to serve the residents of Central Ontario. 


ACF Pardons & Waivers Paralegals are licensed by the Law Society of Ontario to provide legal services. Many other agencies that "specialize"in record suspension and U.S. entry waiver services are not operated by licensed Paralegals or Lawyers.

Some of these agencies charge outrageous fees, offer "premium" services that don't exist and even take your money when you're not yet eligible for a record suspension. These "unlicensed" services do not have to abide by Law Society rules, are not required to carry insurance, and are not bound by a code of conduct.

When you hire a legal service operated by a licensed Paralegal or law firm, you as a consumer are protected, and the service providers are guaranteed to be reputable and accountable. So regardless of whether you hire ACF Pardons & Waivers or not, insist on a licensed Paralegal or Lawyer assist you with your record suspension, or any other issue that involves the law. You will rest assured that you have trusted a true professional to help you obtain your Record Suspension.
