Ask a Military Lawyer. Get Your Military Law Questions Answered
Hi sir My ex-wife took protective order of 2 years on Dec 19,2011. I am in Navy Reserve. I have secret security clearance. I applied for a job in military sealift command. First they offered second officer position but later they rescinded due to not being able to be assigned to position requiring access to firearms. In protective order it is mentioned that there is a limited exception for military or law enforcement officers, but only while they are on duty.
Recruitment officer told me it has to be cleared before because it is security issue.
I have a very clean background but this order of protection has popped up every where.
Q1) when I will complete the duration of two years on Dec 19, 2013 then Military sealift command can still rescind my application because of expired protective order or could it affect my career.
Q2) Is it happened that any one can file motion to expunged order of protection by family court after it will expire. so it will be not visible as record in background check.
I went abroad on last month. when I handed my US passport at arrival to Immigration officer then he told me that I have active order of protection and system doesn`t show the date it will remain effect.
Please Sir, have a look the issued Queens family court Order Of Protection to me. The Judge issued it by my wish. Both parties were present in the court. I was on A-School training at that time and wanted to settle down this matter as soon as possible instead of waiting for next date in the court for counseling. The judge assured me that Navy will not come to know at the time of awarding but now it is every where.
I want to know
Q1) What does it reflects? Did I commit a crime or violation(Which is 100% not true), Is it a misdemeanor, offense , warning from court or something else?
Q2) Does it reflects my character? If it does then what kind of a character even if there is no police report or criminal charges?
Q3) Will it effects my Secret Security Clearance which was granted on April 2011?
This is my first time to deal with the law suit matter .I need an expert attorney or lawyer in Queens new York. who have knowledge about military laws and can present defamation suit process in the court. I will provide further details to him.
Can you know by any chance any one of them?
Is it possible that I can delete my attachments in the first email? I have seen that it can seen by any one on the web.
