Sir, thank you for your reply. I'm actually not a contractor, I'm military (Air Force). The reason for the SOR is having a foreign passport (I just surrendered it to my SSO, as I have no problem renouncing that citizenship). My dilemma is I need help articulating the response letter and I would've hired an attorney but unfortunately I can't afford the amount they are asking from me since I have a wife and three young boys and we are on a tight budget. Is there a format I can look at and follow in order to make it look professional. I was told that in my case I can easily mitigate foreign preference (Having a foreign passport) by surrendering the passport or having it destroyed.
1. I did elect extra time and was given til mid August to respond.
2.I just received all my OPM and AFCAF files yesterday.
3.Thank you :)
My SOR states one specific reason and that is Foreign preference due to having dual nationality (Passport). No foreign influence is stated.
Should I still ask for a hearing?? or is it different for military members. The adjudicator told my command that he/she would make a decision within 30 days of receiving my response!!!
