Obtaining or keeping a government security clearance might be essential for the job that you’re relying on to support your family. It’s imperative to give yourself the best chance of getting that clearance and retaining it. This may require the help of an attorney who has a deep understanding of how each step of the security clearance process works, how to present your application, and how to respond to any issues raised by investigators.
Each agency of government has their own procedures for approving security clearance, and it’s important that you and your lawyer be aware of what each will be looking for. Timetables and deadlines must be honored. Factors you might not consider important or are buried long in the past might suddenly surface in the process of investigation and adjudication of your clearance.
