TSA PreCheck Appeal Lawyers
If you received a Preliminary Determination of Ineligibility regarding your TSA PreCheck application, contact an experienced TSA PreCheck appeal lawyer today. The most common reasons applicants will be issued a Preliminary Determination of Ineligibility for the PreCheck program will be due to disqualifying criminal convictions, open criminal dispositions, and/or outstanding criminal warrants.
Surprisingly, the TSA PreCheck appeal attorneys at Katherine O’Brien Law have found that the TSA often times bases its preliminary of determination of ineligibility on inaccurate, incomplete, or false information. For example, if your offense was downgraded to a misdemeanor or a lesser offense, was expunged or pardoned, or if it has been more than 7 years since you were convicted of a disqualifying offense (for some, but not all felony convictions), you should be eligible for participation in PreCheck. In these circumstances, we recommend that you appeal the TSA’s preliminary determination.
At Katherine O’Brien Law, if we conclude that an appeal is warranted, we will gather various documentation relating to the underlying disqualifying criminal offense and submit that documentation to the TSA in order to show either one or more of the following, as applicable:
• That your disqualifying open warrant was either: (1) issued by mistake; (2) resolved; or (3) did not result in a disqualifying felony criminal conviction.
• That you are no longer under indictment for a disqualifying felony criminal offense.
• That you were not convicted of a disqualifying felony criminal offense and, instead, that you were either: (1) found guilty of a lesser misdemeanor offense; (2) you were found not guilty of the felony offense; or (3) the felony charges were dismissed.
• The felony conviction was overturned on appeal or you were issued a pardon or expungement with respect to that offense.
• For some felony offenses (see list of disqualifying criminal offenses below), that you were released from incarceration more than 5 years ago and it has been more than 7 years since your felony conviction.
You only have 60 days from the date you receive the preliminary determination of ineligibility letter to file an appeal. Thus, if your PreCheck application has been rejected, you should promptly consult with an experienced TSA PreCheck appeal lawyer today so that they can begin reviewing your case and gathering the necessary documentation.
