Copy of temple Clearance

Postby msdocbs » Thu Nov 10, 2016 11:49 am

We are trying to be sealed. We've both received our Temple clearance. My husbands most recently, mine, years ago. When calling to set up our sealing, I was told I need the date of my clearance. Well I don't know! How do I find that out? I don't think I ever received an actual letter.. Where do I find such a thing?
Thanks

Were you and your husband sealed to previous spouses? If so, you should have received a letter cancelling your previous sealing, and approving a new sealing.

Temple recommends are valid for two years. if it has been longer than that then your recommend has expired and you will have to get another.

Your recommend is given to you on a piece of paper that folds down to a size a little smaller than that of a credit card. You can check with your ward clerk to see when your recommend expires if you cannot find your temple recommend.

Even if your recommend is current, you must present your recommend at the temple for entry. So if you can't find your temple recommend you will need to get another.

"Clearance" and "recommend" are two different things. I haven't been involved with the process, but I'm a bit surprised the temple would need to see the clearance since I'd think it would be part of the membership record they could see and verify for themselves.

I would first call the temple again and let them know you do not have the exact date, and ask if they are able to obtain it or if you need to find it. It used to be that you needed to take the letter to the temple with you, but that may not be the case any longer.

If the temple asks you to get the date, speak with your stake clerk or stake president. They will have to call Church headquarters and obtain that information. If the temple asks you to bring the letter, ask your stake president to request another copy from the Office of the First Presidency for you.
