Found Not Guilty but Past Still Haunting Me. Can I Immigrate to Canada with a Past History in the Court System?

    I am engaged to a Canadian woman and am set to have her sponsor me to come to Canada after we are married this summer. I have a skeleton in my closet that she is not aware of and it is causing me a great deal of concern. About ten years ago I was charged with a very serious offence but I was acquitted of the charges after a long court process. This matter still shows up on Police checks regardless of the fact that I was acquitted. I am very concerned that this is going to affect my immigration. Please let me know if I have reason to be concerned.

    Thank you
