    Default Can a Spouses Past Felony Affect a Security Clearance

    My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Kentucky

    I've been hired by the Federal government. Apart of the hiring process was my background clearance. I am currently not married. However, I am dating someone, and we are planning on getting married. My concern is this, will his previous conviction ( more than 7 years ago) affect my Secret security clearance if I do marry him?

    It depends on what the felony was, which branch of FedGov (DoD is stricter than other agencies), and how highly you're going to be cleared. I would suggest asking your security officer for guidance before put down a deposit with a caterer and booking a wedding venue.

    I would hope it patently obvious that it depends on what he was convicted of.
