Public trust clearance timeline


I am in same boat as you. Got TO on 8/13. Was contacted on 9/12 with questions about my dual citizenship. Waiting to hear more and anxious. What location are you looking at for positioning?


Sacramento CA. I have called again today to ask they needed me to provide copy of sealed court case. Got reply to hang on that I may or may not needed to provide down the road. I don’t know how to process this may or may not response negative or positive?


Rumor has it they want seats filled by Oct 1st. Not sure that is going to happen? Guess no news is good news?


Yups that is what I have been told while interview that due to fiscal year deadline agency wants to fill out the vacancies before September 30th. Thank Godness I have an equally good job at present so whatever will happen will happen for good.


Got my EOD of 10/14 yesterday.


Got my EOD yesterday as well


What is your start date?


My Eod is September 26th


Please am worried about my public trust. I just got a tentative offer for a federal job. I had a fight with my wife. The case has been thrown out. I was found not guilty. Both of us has resolved our differences. The case is at final stage of expungement. I hope this won’t affect my public trust. Thanks


If you were initially arrested, you need to make sure that is included in any forms you fill out that ask about criminal history. If you were arrested, but found not guilty - you still need to include that. They will find it in the criminal background check and also see that it resulted in not guilty, too, so you should be fine. As long as the information you provide matches the information they will find when they run checks, you’ll be in much better shape.


I just got a tentative offer pending the outcome of my background check. I had a fight with my spouse. The case has been thrown out. None of us found guilty. We resolved our differences and the case is at final stage of expungement. Am worried this will not affect my public trust.


Thanks sapguy. I can’t wait to know the outcome. Thanks


If your case has been expunged from a court record. Do you say yes if they ask have you ever been arrested before.


Yes. It also says ever “charged with”.
