SF85P-Assault & Battery

17 years ago, at the age of 23, I was involved in a little pushing and shoving with my at the time wife which eventually led to me being charged with Assault & Battery. I completed the SF85P today and there was a question on there about any Assault & Battery charges against a spouse, etc. no matter the age of the charge. I listed the incident, dates, charges, conviction, etc. I have not been in any trouble since then. Again, this was 17 years ago. Will my SF85P Public Trust be denied? How long do these investigations normally take?

No . . . You shouldn’t have any problem. The government is looking to screen out problems. They do not expect to find perfect people.

Do you know how long these investigations take?

THAT is the one thing that we do not know . . . They’re all different.

They take as long as they take.

Understandable, thanks for the insight!
