Last updated: 9/21/2011
Board of Law Examiners Appointed by the Supreme Court of Texas SUPPLEMENTAL INVESTIGATION Carefully follow these instructions and complete these forms, typing or printing your answers. Use blue or black ink if you choose to print. Keep a copy of your Supplemental Investigation for future reference, as you may be charged for any copies you request from the Board's file. Absolutely no alterations may be made to the text or wording of this Supplemental Investigation. If alterations are found, the Supplemental Investigation will be rejected and your fees forfeited. Your Supplemental Investigation will not be considered filed and may be returned to you if it is incomplete. Examples of incompleteness include, but are not limited to, the following: a. failure to provide any information required, including names, complete addresses, telephone numbers, and/or zip/postal codes; b. failure to answer any question or subquestion; c. failure to provide a complete and separate Continuation Form, Civil Litigation Form and Criminal History Form for each response requiring one; d. failure to send in the required fees; e. any indecipherable answers; f. any signature notarized more than 90 days before the date received by BLE; g. alteration of any language of the Supplemental Investigation, Affidavit, Authorization and Release, or other required form; or h. failure to sign any document requiring your signature and/or failure to have your signatures notarized where required. Before you file your Supplemental Investigation, verify that you have fully responded to all items, questions, and statements, leaving no blanks and attaching all required Continuation Forms, Civil Litigation Forms, Criminal History Forms, and an original signed and notarized Authorization and Release Form. If the item or question is inapplicable, write "N/A." Incomplete Supplemental Investigations may be rejected. If you have not enclosed required documentation that you must obtain from third parties (e.g., court records, etc.), explain on a Continuation Form as required in item 20. You must make a good faith effort to provide these items within 30 days of our receipt of your Supplemental Investigation. Your failure to meet this deadline may cause your Supplemental Investigation to be returned to you as not being properly filed. This 30-day grace period DOES NOT APPLY to the Continuation, Criminal History Forms, and Civil Litigation Forms that must be filed with your Supplemental Investigation, if applicable. 1. Filing Fees: Make your check, money order, or bank cashier's check payable to the BOARD OF LAW EXAMINERS (NOT the State Bar of Texas) in the amount of $190.00. Do not postdate your check. A Supplemental Investigation is not considered filed until all associated fees are received in the BLE office. If your personal check for fees is returned for insufficient funds or is otherwise dishonored by your bank, you may be assessed a returned check charge. All fees due after that time must be paid by bank cashier's check or money order. There is no refund of fees if you withdraw your Supplemental Investigation or do not meet all requirements for admission. 2. Filing of Supplemental Investigation: Mail or deliver your Supplemental Investigation and all attachments and required fees to the Board as follows: MAILING ADDRESS: Board of Law Examiners P.O. Box 13486 Austin, TX 78711-3486 DELIVERY ADDRESS: Board of Law Examiners 205 West 14th Street, 5th Floor Austin, Texas 78701 i 3. 4. Period of Time Covered by the Supplemental Investigation: You must contact the Board office to obtain the date to enter at the top of page 1. Authorization/Release Form: Provide two (2) ORIGINAL, SIGNED, and NOTARIZED Authorization/Release forms. Do not send copies. Blank forms are attached for your use. These forms must be filed simultaneously with your Supplemental Investigation. Expunged and Sealed Offenses: Matters expunged pursuant to Texas Code of Criminal Procedure Art. 55.02, or pursuant to another State's statute with the same force and effect, need not be disclosed. While expunged or sealed offenses, arrests, tickets, or citations need not be disclosed, it is your responsibility to ensure the offense, arrest, ticket, or citation has, in fact, been expunged or sealed. It is recommended that you obtain a copy of the Court Order expunging or sealing the record in question. Failure to reveal an offense, arrest, ticket, or citation that is not in fact expunged or sealed, raises questions related to truthfulness in addition to questions regarding the offense itself. Note that orders of nondisclosure pursuant to Govt. Code §411.081 are not orders of expunction. Orders of Non-Disclosure: Pursuant to the Govt. Code Sec. 552.142 (b), if you have criminal matters that are the subject of an order of non-disclosure you are not required to reveal those criminal matters on this form. However, a criminal matter that is the subject of an order of non-disclosure may become a character and fitness issue. Pursuant to other sections of the Government Code 411.081(d), 411.081(i)(5), 411.083(b), 411.084(a), 411.087(a), and 411.100, the Texas Board of Law Examiners is entitled to access criminal history record information that is the subject of an order of nondisclosure. Therefore, if the Board discovers a criminal matter that is the subject of an order of non-disclosure, even if you properly did not reveal that matter, the Board may ask you to provide information about that criminal matter. Civil Litigation Forms: One Civil Litigation Form is attached to your Supplemental Investigation; make additional copies as needed. Use this Form as directed in the Supplemental Investigation. If applicable, these forms must be filed simultaneously with your Supplemental Investigation. Criminal History Forms: One Criminal History Form is attached to your Supplemental Investigation; make additional copies as needed. Use this form as directed in the Supplemental Investigation. If applicable, these forms must be filed simultaneously with your Supplemental Investigation. Continuation Forms: One Continuation Form is attached to your Supplemental Investigation at page 14; make additional copies as needed. Analyze the Supplemental Investigation carefully to determine how many forms you will need before you mark on the one copy provided.
