I had my record sealed, did a Department of Justice (LiveScan) background check and my record was completely clear. Nothing was found! Although this was very exciting, I am nervous that even with those adjudications cleared, I won't be able to get licensed in different areas of Finance. I have a few career paths, which all require licensing. I am currently looking into getting a few securities licenses through FINRA and am trying to figure out if they will approve my U-4 or not. Not sure if I should disclose these priors or not since it's clear from DOJ and I've heard many times that I can say no to applications for licenses. Here is the link to FINRA's application: http://www.finra.org/web/groups/industry/@ip/@comp/@regis/documents/appsupportdocs/p015112.pdf
Thanks so much!!!
