I received a response from the review panel for Top secret clearance at DOS. It is not a denial of SC but a determination that I do not meet the fitness requirements for contract employment.
The reasons they gave me are: Foreign influence and foreign preference
I’ve been a citizen for 11 months (Not sure why this is a factor)
I have foreign relatives who are citizens of my “country of birth”
My brother and brother-in-law are employed by the gov’t.
I drafted something for reconsideration, but I was wondering if I need a lawyer’s input. Any advice on this?
My brother-in-law, I talk with like once a year. we have very minimum communication. My country of Birth does not pose a threat to the US in any way.
Does it mean because my brother is a citizen of another country, I won’t have clearance ever? I dont understand the rationale…
Can anyone recommend a lawyer I could seek advice from?
