CA Moral Fitness Question
« on: March 17, 2011, 05:23:56 PM »
At what point is it appropriate to telephone one's processor and ask about one's status. I submitted my Moral Fitness application about 6 1/2 months ago and have heard nothing back other than the letter saying who the processor was. I have no bad background so I am not sure why it is taking so long. Can I call and ask, is this appropriate?

I know people with bad history like theft and stuff from college who got passed through before me and we submitted at the same time.

It is appropriate to contact your investigator after you receive the letter.  I did that and found out I needed to prepare a narrative about an issue.  It then took an additional three months to get "approved."  They are very slow, especially around the time that bar exam results come out.  My investigator had no problem with me checking in from time to time.

Thanks that makes me feel better!!

What do I say?

Should I just say, "Can I please have an update on the status of my file?"

You need to say:  "The Rooster Crows Facing East"

He will know what you want.

just say "hey, I was wondering if you needed anything from me about my application; its been awhile and I am just curious"  or something like that.  I think they are used to these types of calls.
