Affidavits of Good Character are valid for two years (four consecutive examinations). You only need to submit new affidavits if the ones previously submitted are older than two years.
The statement in the affidavit must meet these requirements:
We are unable to process your application without the following and failure to include these items at the time of application may result in your application being returned to you:
If you are missing something or additional information is required, a request will be posted to your Applicant Portal. We are not able to begin the Character and Fitness investigation without a properly completed Authorization and Release (page 14 of the Application). Failure to provide this with your application will delay the processing of your application.
Ensure that you carefully read and make diligent efforts to comply with any records requests. For example, a request for court and police records will typically require contacting two separate offices, and a docket printout or register of actions will not satisfy a request for copies of filed documents such as complaints or orders. Obtain verifying documentation from the records holder if records are unavailable as this is requested by the Board office.
Contact your references and recent employers listed in your application and let them know that they may receive a character questionnaire from our office in the mail. Non-responsive references often delay the application process.
Some documents require a PDF reader to view properly.
