Alright so here is my ordeal. I had permanent residence in Canada ( I am American) starting in 2003...I went to school there from 2002-2005, then I went to college till August of 2006...Then I got accepted to a US College and moved back to Texas with family to go to school here. I am wanting to get married to my boyfriend, and move back to Canada( he still lives in Canada he is a citizen)..but I just noticed that my permanent residence was expired in february of 2009. What do I need to do? Will I have any trouble going back across the border by land? Can I go back across, and then renew my p.r? I have went to many sites, and just haven't found what I am looking for. Can I cross, marry him and stay??..And will that help speed up getting my p.r renewed? If anyone has answers please please help ASAP! Thanks..
