Will a dropped restraining order from 5 years ago show up on a Army Secret Clearance request?
My recruiter told me he put my dropped civil restraining order from 5 years ago in the computer and it turns out he didnt. So he told me to mark no on all the meps paperwork regarding anything with the law because thats the only contact I had. I already swore in and didnt document it at meps because he had my only copy of the order and I was told he would take care of it for me. Now I found out that he just omitted the information and I need a Secret Clearance for my job. What do I do to get this information to mep and how do I do it properly so it dont hurt my enlisted. The recruiter didnt tell me to lie I was just simply misled how do I correct the problem and what will the process be like? I dont ship till sept 1 and my job is 42A human resources specialist. And I dont want to hear people whining about fraudulent enlistment I was misled and assumed my recruiter was acting on the information I gave to him. Also when my initial background check was ran it came back entirely clean but the restraining order was when I was 18 The restraining order was a completly fabricated verbal statement by my father which he now admits I didnt say. It was a civil order no violence had taken place and It was given to me by a teacher at school if that helps any. Also as of two months ago it would have been past 5 years if that is the case will they still look into it??????????

yes it will. My husband went through the same type of thing when he joined the usmc. when he was in high school he beat up a fellow classmate, and had charges filed against him. he was told he could avoid expulsion and any jail time if he transferred schools. Once he did, the case was dropped and the file sealed. it... More
