Divorce can be an extremely stressful and emotional process that impacts almost every aspect of our lives. 尽管情感上的创伤可能很深, 通常,持续时间最长的是经济和职业上的伤疤. 好消息是 离婚 不太可能影响你的安全许可. The bad news is it is pretty easy for you (or your spouse) to do something stupid that might cost you your clearance, 最终你的工作. 本文介绍新墨西哥州离婚家庭律师 安东尼Spratley 讨论离婚如何影响你的LANL, Sandia,或 军事 安全检查和就业. 

财务对你安全许可的影响

As previously noted, 离婚 does not carry inherent risks to your 安全调查 and career.  你案子的事实, 然而, or other byproducts of the 离婚 can pose serious risks to your career and job security. 最常见的担忧之一就是你的财务状况. 离婚是昂贵的,而且 它的成本 再加上共同收入的减少,有时会让你的财务状况变得很拮据. If you are stretched to the point where you are having difficulty paying your bills and servicing your 债务 and you fall into collections, 丧失抵押品赎回权, 或破产, 你也在破坏你的权限. 对于你工作的机构,严重的财务问题或过度 债务 这会让你很容易被间谍和敲诈,也表明你的判断力很差. 这取决于你的工作和权限, this may be an unacceptable risk and your clearance can be reduced or terminated completely. 你也不能用你的离婚或你的配偶处理财务作为借口. Just as ignorance of the law 不是借口, ignorance of your spouse’s spending or your own 金融事务 不是借口. Federal employees or E-7 军事 retirees should understand that financial missteps can be seen as an example of poor judgment that reflects poorly on your clearance qualifications.  离婚已经够有压力的了,而且还不用担心你的生计.  You obviously don’t want to find yourself in a situation where you lose your spouse, home, and job. 

 

你的个人生活可以影响你的安全许可

如你所知,你的 个人生活安全调查 不幸的是,关于你离婚的事实也可能是. 调查人员可以查看你离婚时的诉状和法庭文件 保管情况. 另外, if in the course of your separation you received marriage counseling because of an affair, 或者这段婚外情与你的案子有关, the agency you work for may have serious reservations about continuing to grant you a sensitive 安全调查 or grant you one in the first place. This can be true even if your spouse does not know about the affair as you are still raising the risk level.  如果出轨对象是外国人,风险尤其大. 事实上, one of the worst things you can do if you have a 安全调查 is to start a relationship with a foreigner, 特别是如果他们来自中国, 俄罗斯, 伊朗, 或阿富汗. 虽然这对许多人来说似乎是显而易见的,但请记住,这并不仅仅适用于 长期的关系. 即使你只是和一个外国人随便玩玩或一夜情, 或者你甚至和一个人有网络关系, 你这是在拿你的工作和安全许可冒险. This is especially true if money changes hands or the situation leaves you open to blackmail. 还记得, people have lost their clearance for a one-time visit to a disreputable massage parlor or other risky behavior. 

  请记住,与非法移民结婚也会对你的通关造成风险, 即使你在等待移民改革或入籍的到来. There have been cases of people who have clearances denied or suspended due to the immigration status of their spouse or soon-to-be ex. Disclosing the relationship and following proper procedures for obtaining permanent US residency for your spouse can help mitigate these risks. 原产国对风险水平也有影响.  

 

你的配偶也会给你的通关带来很大的风险

重要的是要记住,指控 家庭暴力 在实验室和军队都很受重视. 被证实的虐待指控会严重影响你的许可. 不幸的是, a vindictive ex can also pose a risk as your ex may be contacted in the course of your investigation. 另外, the pleadings and court filings in your 离婚 or 保管情况 can be used by the background investigator in charge of your investigation. 如果你担心你的前任会怎么说你, 也不知道法庭程序会揭露什么, 马上通知你的安全官员. 你越透明,你的影响力就越大. 你的前任,或者即将成为你前任的人 还可以用自己的人生决定影响你的清关吗. 如果例如, 他们在或开了一家医疗或娱乐大麻商店, 他们仍然违反联邦法律,不管我们当地的州法律. 有安全许可的人知道配偶的违法习惯或职业, but choose to turn a blind eye is running the same risk as someone who marries an undocumented person. 明知违法,调查人员也不会喜欢你. 底线是, you can also be held responsible for your spouse or you’re soon to be former spouse’s behavior.

 

我应该自我报告吗? 

所以你犯了个错误. 无论你的前任提出了令人发指的指控,还是你错过了几笔汽车付款, your still faced with the choice to either disclose some embarrassing information to your agency or just keep quiet.  如果你认为你不告诉他们你的机构就不会发现, 考虑一下是否值得冒这个险. The SF-86 will ask some very tough and specific questions about your personal relationships and interactions with foreigners. Non-disclosure or dishonesty isn’t a great option when your hooked up to a polygraph test. Not disclosing will certainly not do you any favors when the agency eventually does find out.  Self-reporting can buy you a little bit of leverage as you at least did the right thing in the end and reported the indiscretion before you were compelled to do so. 然而, this leverage will only go so far with the agency and should not be considered a get-out-of-jail-free card. 虽然我不能说自我报告能拯救你, it does provide some mitigating factor in the event of some problematic circumstances. 如果你认为你的前任会在调查期间试图破坏你, 提前告诉你的安全人员. 

 

If you have some skeletons in your closet or you think some aspect of your personal relationships, 离婚或财务状况可能会有问题, 你一定要找个律师. Do so before even filling out your SF-86 as many issues or potential issues can be dealt with by properly filling out your SF-86 in the first place.  类似的, DOD or DOE may make a request for additional information or a request for derogatory information. Many people walk into traps in these situations by not answering specifically enough. 所以除非你的记录完全清白你的良心也完全清白, its best to consult with an attorney both during your 离婚 and during your 安全调查 review or self-reporting.
