Submit an Application to the First Presidency

Postby jasonfitt » Tue Dec 24, 2013 9:43 am

Where do I find the Application to the First Presidency form? We need to request a sealing clearance so a member in our unit can remarry in the temple who was sealed to his previous wife. Handbook 1 (3.6.1) says units can obtain a paper copy of the form from the recording-keeping software (I'm assuming that's MLS). I looked all through MLS and could not find it. The Record-Keeping and Technology Support webpage on LDS.org says the bishop can submit it online by logging on to LDS.org, then Clerk Resources, then Membership tab, then select Application to the First Presidency under the Confidential heading. However, that link is not there for him.

It's in MLS in the confidential reports section (lower left corner of the main screen of MLS).

Ok, thanks. Our bishop actually would prefer to fill the form out and submit it online if possible. Apparently LDS.org says this can be done. Any ideas why the link would not be visible for him there, or anywhere else it might be?

Is the Application to the First Presidency Form now available on the wed site or is it still a MLS only form?

Applications to the First Presidency are now online-only. From a letter dated June 1, 2015:
Beginning July 1, 2015, priesthood leaders in all areas of the world that have access to a reliable Internet connection are to complete and submit Application to the First Presidency documents electronically. The online tool is to be used for all purposes of the application: sealing clearance, cancellation of temple sealing, reinstatement or readmission requiring First Presidency approval, and restoration of priesthood and temple blessings. ...

You need to visit with your bishop to start this process.

Only Bishops and Stake Presidents have access to that. You'll have to talk with your Bishop.
