    My wife is from Mexico and is not yet a permanent resident. We have a lawyer and have been in the process of completing paperwork for her permanent residency for a few months now. I received word that this issue will probably hold me back from getting a security clearance. Does anyone know how bad this will hurt my chances of getting the clearance?

    ALSO...the recruiters have now informed me that I may not be able to even DEP yet until she has permanent residency. They are trying to figure the situation out.

    i know folks who have had a ts/sci and then married a foreigner while here in korea with no issues whatsoever. If anything i think being in the military shortens the amount of time until she can become a naturalized citizen.
