Interpreting Different DoD Regulations

Known across the country as one of “The Best Security Clearance Lawyers” for clients, Attorney Alan Edmunds thrives in the courtroom and can comprehend all aspects of security clearance law. Within ICPG 7014.2, there is the statement: “Being a U.S. citizen and a citizen of another country is not prohibited or disqualifying absent a showing of heightened risks related to national security.” This statement does not appear in DoD 5220.6. Attorney Edmunds has the ability to interpret the law precisely and apply all advantages to your own case.

A Country’s Foreign Involvement is Significant

Many people with dual citizenship hold it with both America and a country widely considered to be a close and trusted ally.

  • Some common allied countries that may offer dual citizenship include:
  • United Kingdom
  • France
  • Canada
  • Australia

People frequently believe that dual citizenship is easier to achieve if it involves these aforementioned countries and others in the same category. This is both correct and incorrect, as it largely varies from case to case and the foreign country’s current extent of involvement with America. This is exactly where Alan Edmunds and our entire staff excels – interpreting individual cases and finding a solution.

All dual citizenship cases can be won. It is just a matter of experience, knowledgeability, and courtroom skills to make it happen.
