Re: California Bar Moral Character Application

Hi everyone, I submitted my moral character application in May 2018, but sent in my paper application with materials a few days ago. I am starting to panic because it says the file must be complete with your documentation within 60 days or your application is abandoned. What should I do? I don't have another $500+ to give them or even to file an extension. Am I screwed? I see other people on here not submitting things at once, but still being ok.

It's only July. If you submitted the online application in May, you have sixty days before there's a problem. That puts you in July. I don't see the problem.

Looks like I'm an idiot.

I submitted and paid for an extension of moral character determination. I got a letter reminding me that I don't need to renew/extend the determination since I already got admitted to the state bar prior to the expiration date. While I look dumb, I'm getting back $265 I didn't expect to have lol.

yeah, I just didn't want them saying they didn't receive a document that I clearly sent and thus, having to start the whole application over. It now says I'm under review so I'm fine. lol
