Submit an Application to the First Presidency

Post by jasonfitt »

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?

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.

Is the online form the same regardless if it's a for a sealing clearance or sealing cancellation? My fiancé is seeking to get a sealing clearance, but the electronic version that his bishop sent him read "Sealing Clearance Form" at the top. We are worried and don't want to fill out all of the information if it is not the correct form. Thanks.
