So, my FOID card got revoked due to a condition of bail on a misdemeanor that was not domestic violence. I got an attorney involved and he was able to have a motion  granted to modify the condition of bail. This got condition "725 ILCS 5/110-10 (a) (5)" striken. So, when I fill out the FOID appeal form do I check [/size]the option request relief from the firearms prohibition or do I check to challenge the accuracy of the records used to revoke my Foid?  Do I need to send the ISP an official copy [/size]or could I send them the printed off copy of the PDF court document my [/size]attorney sent me?

You will want to file a records challenge appeal. A copy is okay as long as it's signed and stamped by the court to show it is legit.

I am curious.  My card was revoked over three years ago due to a pending felony charge.  I completed TASC probation and the conviction was vacated.  Two weeks ago, I applied for an appeal to get my card back.  What are the chances of that happening?  How long does the process take?

Previous answers in this thread say 1 to 2 years plus

These types of appeals are taking a year or more, hopefully you will hear something soon.


Just three posts back......

Hello. My situation is similar to alot of people in Illinois. I was convicted of class 2 Felony Burglary in 1990 in Cook county when I was age 22. I completed 3yrs probation in 1993. I have recently had the Felony conviction successfully sealed by the Illinois state police, Chicago police and Cook county circuit court earlier this year. I have no other arrests or convictions since.Now at age 50, I am a Chicago homeowner and I work as a Registered Nurse of 14 years and I want to own a firearm legally. What are my chances of obtaining a FOID card after 29 plus years of being a productive part of the community? Any input will be greatly appreciated.

 

 

Welcome to IllinoisCarry.

 

If you have had a clean record for the past 20 years and a good reputation in your community, you have a very good chance of getting your rights restored.

 

The first step, as mentioned above, is to apply for a FOID card. Answer all the questions truthfully.  You will be denied and that is when you can begin the process of restoring your rights.

 

With the denial, the ISP will send a letter stating why you were denied - DO NOT LOSE THIS LETTER - you will need it to submit as evidence if you have to go to court.

 

The second step is to apply for a pardon from the governor.  Both these options must be attempted before you can appeal in court, otherwise the attorney general's office will try to get your case dismissed on the basis that all options have not been exhausted.

 

Keep us posted on your progress!

 

Is applying for a pardon filing a petition for executive clemency, then expungement ? Would getting records sealed make a difference?

Expungement and sealing are different.

Hello:
Approximately 8 years ago when I was 15 years old my Foid card was revoked because of a mental health issue with my parent/sponsor. Shortly after this incident (a few months) I was granted a different legal gaurdian via court order. I am now 23 years old and should no longer require a sponsor for my foid application. However, my account still says “revoked” and will not allow me to reapply. I have not attempt to appeal my revocation. What steps should I take to be apply to reapply, being that nothing I personally did was the reason for revocation. I do not have any factors that would prevent me from being approved for a foid card. recently graduated college and now would like to get back into waterfowl hunting, so any help getting my card as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Very good but could take a while.  Appeals seem to be taking a year or more to be reviewed and resolved . . .

I was just denied for my FOID card.  Reason for the denial was: "Driving on suspended/revoked license - court ordered restriction from 07/17/2018."  My understanding was misdemeanors would not affect the application process only felonies would affect it.  I have since cleared up everything and have my driving license back in good standing.  Is there a certain amount of time I have to wait before requesting an appeal?  Thanks in advance!
