          The process follows no logical order, I mean I interviewed with my background investigator before I even took my VBT :0

          I was just putting out the info I was told by MHC.
          The joke was that you posted it like it were straight from the Book of Luke. Everybody's is different. Forms and qualifications were the first things to turn "completed" on CASS for me.
          Gek.

            Nope wasn’t my intention, and I've always been more fond of the gospel of John (small joke )

            I will try to stay active on this forum while I am at the academy Drifting so hopefully I can provide useful info for all you going through the process still, and I will try to be more informative on my future post as I read it now I see how it could have been interpreted that way.

When I was in the Air Force they had a rule on how far they could base spouses apart. I email CBP a couple weeks ago and they still have not responded to me. Any info or links would be appreciated.
              You might try to PM this guy over at Delphi "ihra7780", looks like he may be in the situation you are describing, he/she may be your best shot at an answer to your question.

              Here is the link to the thread:

                Hey, before you found out about the clerical error, what were they telling you about your background? How did they discover the error?

I got suspicious because I'm young and don't have much to look into. They have two different databases to keep track if your files and one of them showed that I was missing something. The woman fixed it and l got my green check and call a week later.
                      Same thing happened to me. The women fixed it for me but I have yet to receive a call from my BI. My suggestion is for you guys to check with them every month, more frequently if you're younger. BTW, my quali went green last week.

                        There are few rules regarding spouses.

                        It is quite possible for spouse #1 to choose a location only to have spouse #2 find himself offered nothing remotely close to spouse #1 location when it's spouse #2's turn to accept/decline the position. As far as I know, there's no easy fix if that should happen.

                        • BTW, here's the current contract...

                          http://www.cbp.gov/linkhandler/cgov/..._agreement.pdf


                          It's short on anything regarding spousal hiring, or so I believe.

                              How many months did you wait between the time your BI was submitted by the investigator and you calling IA?

                                I've never called past 3pm mountain time. But if they do not answer you will be prompted to leave a message. They are really good about getting back to you. I called this morning at 10:59 and they called back by 11:42.
