FBI Security Clearance Lawyers

FBI Security Clearances

Four Decades of Experience in Security Clearances

 

Obtaining a security clearance from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) may be a requirement for one’s position.  Examples of this include law enforcement personnel on the federal, state, and local levels. Some other people  outside of the realm of law enforcement may also be obligated to get an FBI security clearance. In actuality, after the attacks on United States soil on Sept. 11, 2001, the FBI revamped its security clearance procedures.  They implemented an initiative to encourage security clearances for civilian public officials with a “need-to-know” clearance for their access to classified information.

 

The attorneys here at The Lawscape, Law Firm assist individuals in gaining FBI security clearances.  There are two levels of clearance to be had: “Secret” and “Top Secret.” With more than 40 years of experience in representing security clearance applicants successfully, Lawscape has built up a large knowledge bank in the discipline of FBI security clearance issues and cases.

 

You are strongly encouraged to contact our FBI security clearance lawyers to set up a consultation with regards to your case.

 

Gaining Access to Classified Information

In the aftermath of 9/11, the FBI began the “State and Local Law Enforcement Executives and Elected Officials Security Clearance Initiative.” The initiative makes it possible for state and local officials to obtain briefings on classified information that may affect the region they serve, once they have gained the requisite security clearance.

 

The process for obtaining an FBI security clearance requires completing the same form-the Standard Form 86 (SF 86)-that the majority of other kinds of security clearances require.  Applicants are also obligated to complete the Questionnaire for National Security Positions. The process begins at the local FBI office nearest to the applicant.

 

Each Applicant Undergoes an The FBI Background Investigation

A detailed background investigation and records check are carried out for every security clearance applicant, even if he or she holds an executive-level position with a law enforcement agency.  This happens regardless of whether the agency conducted its own investigation at hiring or not. The background investigation is obligatory with no exceptions, and it applies for both Top Secret and Secret FBI security clearance levels. As Lawscape would explain, numerous FBI security clearance applications slow down at the background investigation point.

 

Here are the areas of an applicant’s life that are checked for an FBI security clearance:

  1. The applicant’s citizenship and that of his/her family members
  2. Verification of birth-date and location
  3. Education history-every institution, and all records
  4. History of residences
  5. Employment history
  6. Financial records-including credit history, bankruptcies and debt delinquency
  7. Mental health history
  8. History regarding alcohol and/or illegal drug use
  9. Military service
  10. Periods spent in a foreign country
  11. Relatives or friends in foreign countries
  12. Interviews of relatives, friends, coworkers, neighbors, and ex-spouses

 

The FBI may reject or delay an applicant’s security clearance on the basis of any information that is incomplete, false or inconsequential. Individuals who have concern about handling the FBI security process can rely upon Lawscape for the experienced and skilled representation they require.
