    Ex-Wife and security clearance

    So I made the mistake of impregnating and marrying Satan. Then I filed for divorce. Since then I have been put through absolute hell by this woman. A foreclosure which was her fault, a restraining order against me with no evidence to support it, stalking my girlfriend to the point she somehow got her cell phone number, false kidnapping reports, false cps reports..........pretty much an absolute psycho trying to control and manipulate me.

    My question is: Are they going to interview her and how much weight will they give her interview when making the decision to grant me a security clearance??

    The common sense thing would be to think she would want what is best for our kid and want me to have a good job. With this one though I have really no way of knowing what she might say if asked about me by a background investigator.

    If anyone knows or has had any experience with this type of thing I would appreciate some insight.
    Thanks

    Re: Ex-Wife and security clearance

    They will at least send her the standard paper form that asks how well she knows you, how long, whether you're trustworthy, etc. It's pretty much the same form that will go to the other references you'll provide -- employers, people to verify places you lived and went to school, etc.

    They won't consider her responses in a vacuum. If she says that you're an evil person out to kill baby seals and everyone else says you're a good guy, they may ask her for additional info or do another interview of her. They may also ask her to provide the names and contact info of several other people that know you. Additionally, they will give you a chance to respond to any allegations she makes against you. And don't worry, they'll see all the court proceedings and everything else, too. If she filed restraining orders (even if they are baseless as you say), MAKE SURE you let them know about them upfront when you fill out your e-Qip and explain later--- DO NOT let the investigators find out about them first from their background check or from her.

    Bottom line: Things will probably work out just fine for you as long as you are completely upfront. Flags may be raised, but they will give you a chance to respond and will evaluate you based on the "total person." If you're otherwise clean and just had a messy divorce with lots of fallout, that shouldn't necessarily be something that would imperil your chances. Delays or a slower clearance than others, maybe.

    Re: Ex-Wife and security clearance

    Along the lines of the security clearance questions...I am currently going through the process to get clearance with my current job, I am just wondering if that will be beneficial when looking to get a job or will they want to do their own check?

    They'll do their own check. Even people who are federal employees with confidential/secret/TS/whatever clearances go through the whole process again for the FAA.

    Be prepared for a lengthy investigation. All the things you assert as false, need to be false. I know she's a bitch, but you need to look at your situation as whole and accept your part in the blame process as well. Looking like a complete victim is going to only hurt you. May I suggest federalsoup.com? It is a message board with a specific section for security clearance concerns toward the bottom of the forum selections. If I were you, I would start typing the stuff you need now. I've lived a realtively boring life and it took me about four hours to fill out the eqip.
    From TowerFlower:

    OTS--Don't think that they are all just dumb high school grads. Some military and CTIs also applied under these openings; also many a pilot have applied---a group who know the rules. Many are college grads trying for something different. I have worked with some OTS and they were excellent controllers.

    I don't know if they even send family members the questioneers, although if there are restraining orders and other reports aganist you they'll probably dig pretty deep into that.

    None of my family members, or my wife received anything as far as security clearance goes. Only friends I've associated with over the years got anything, and previous employers.

    Re: Ex-Wife and security clearance

    Also per the divorce judgement she was supposed to assume financial responsibility of the marital home and refinance it in her name. She agreed and signed on to that but never paid a dime and never attempted to get the house in her name. The house is now foreclosed and my name never came off the note. Anybody with any experience in this??

    Thanks
