Thanks for the advice, I appreciate it. I may look more into expungement but will be definitely appealing in 2020. I don't see why I'd be denied in court after the judge sees the circumstances and that I've met all requirements.

I'm attempting to start the Revoke appeal process and soo unclear on what to do first. It's been more than 5 yrs from my stay at a hospital. Can I just mail in the Waiver of Liability form and see what happens.

No, there are other steps to follow as well.

ISP has had my appeal for at least seven months I'm so frustrated with this. Last April of this year I also filed for clemency I'm sure that will take even longer.

I hired a Attorney who said he could get me my foid over twenty years has passed since a forcible felony conviction with a friend. Trouble free since then we went to court and the judge ruled against me I had only thirty days to appeal the decision. It was never done the attorney wouldn't return my calls and I left several messages with him but he didn't respond. More than less he just took my money.What happens after you send in your appeal to ISP and loose? What happens if you cant go back to court because you only had the thirty day appeal am i really screwed?

I'm afraid we have a long wait ahead and it just isn't right the ISP does this.

I wouldn't be as upset if they would have never gave me the FOID in the first place. They obviously did a background check when I applied and granted me the card. As soon as I tried to purchase a handgun it got revoked...

New applications are processed in 30 days but appeals can take anywhere from a few months to years, depending on the type of appeal.  The mental health admission more than 5 years ago seem to be taking 3-6 months.  They have to be reviewed by the mental health board before being ruled on.

Good evening, 

 

I'm a new member and this is my first post here. At the risk of being repetitious following other's posts, I'm reaching out to get an idea for the appeal timeline. 

 

I was convicted of two misdemeanor DUIs in 2012/15. One of the cases involved a dismissed felony DUI during the pendency of which my FOID was revoked. I have no other prohibitors and completed a long period of probation earlier this year. A non-mental health appeal was filed earlier this spring (approximately August) with all supporting documentation and a fairly well written legal brief (I'm an attorney, although don't practice anything related to licensing law(s)). 

 

Wondering if being rated high-risk in my second DUI conviction would act as a bar/hurdle and what I can expect from the ISP. 

 

Thanks for any replies!

 

--Victor

Vic,

 

Did you submit certified copies showing successful completion of probation?  Did you provide proof of an IL driver's license or state issued ID? I don't think the high risk DUI will keep you from getting the FOID reinstated but it could serve as a 5 year prohibitor for a concealed carry license.

Molly, 

 

Thanks for the response. I submitted certified copies of all dispositions and a copy of my State ID. Hopefully it's just a matter of time.

I see these types of appeals taking anywhere from 6 mos. to year or so . . . frustratingly long time but the appeals dept. at ISP is very short of personnel.
