Reasons for Security Clearance Denial

Have you applied for a security clearance and had that clearance denied, either before you were hired or during a routine renewal? If so, you may be wondering if there is anything you can do. Rest assured there is something that can be done, and our firm can help. The attorneys at McCormack & McCormack have more than 35 years combined experience helping clients navigate through all types of security clearance issues.

We know the laws pertaining to security clearances and we know there are very exact qualities which are looked for during the security clearance process. We also know that individuals who are believed to possess these qualities will most likely have their clearance approved, while those who do not will be given a Statement of Reasons (SOR) letting them know why their clearance is being denied.

The most common reasons for a security clearance denial include personal conduct, criminal conduct, foreign preference or influence, involvement with drugs or alcohol, sexual behavior, financial considerations, psychological or mental conditions, emotional or personality disorders, past handling of protected information, security violations and misuse of information technology systems.

It is essential, when preparing your response and fighting your security clearance denial, that you have a strong advocate on your side.
