In a quick thumb though the Handbook, I don't see where the unit would contact the former spouse. Are you sure that's a requirement and if it is, that it's the unit that does that and not CHQ?

Instructions are online at LCR with the Application to the First Presidency. It is my understanding that the app will now generate the needed letter during the preparation process.

It is not in the Handbook. And yes, the bishop or stake president obtains that letter as part of the application process before it is sent to the First Presidency. Complete requirements and instructions are in the Application.

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


So clerks definitely do not have access? I have looked everywhere I can think and can't find it. Bishop has asked me to put a letter/application together for him for a cancelation. Want to exhaust all resources before reporting back to him that I had no luck.

If you go to "other" in the toolbar in LCR, you should see an "access table". That's probably where I got that information. With the change in permissions for a STS, I no longer have access.

Clerks do not have access. The bishop has to do it.

Sealing paoerwork

Postby prowcc » Thu Feb 28, 2019 2:33 pm

How do I find out where my sealing paperwork ended up since i moved out of my old stake? Or find out if I received a cancellation of my sealing so that I am able to be sealed to my husband when our year anniversary gets here on June 9, 2019?
My husband's (then boyfriend's) paoerwork was never turned in after sending it to his Bishop. Our current Bishop just sent it to the Stake and my husband met with the Stake Pres. last night, so his should be arriving to Salt Lake any moment.
We are just wondering how to find out if my paoerwork was ever sent to Salt Lake....?
Additionally we are buying a house back in my old Stake, so we will be moving back into [that] Stake this month.

Your current bishop and stake president will be able to find out for you, and they may need to contact your former stake president to do so. But that would be the best way to find out.

Can I as a member summit a application for a sealing clearance or does it have to come from my Branch President.
