Hello again everyone!

 

I had a quick question regarding legal residency and having a non-resident CCW. I recently submitted my application for a CCW and to my understanding, it will become void if I become an IL resident. My wife is moving to Chicago in January and I was going to put myself on the lease (I'm the one with the good credit  :laugh:) and was going to apply for zoned parking for her car (that's in my name). Will the process for a parking permit and/or the lease establish me as a resident of IL and make my CCW void? I'm not planning on switching my license over from Virginia. I regularly travel for work weeks at a time and plan on flying to Chicago a few times per month. 

 

Thanks for any help guys!

Typically, getting an IL or another states DL is the triggering event. I see no reason a parking permit or lease should do that.

Driver's license and/or voter registration establishes your residency. Neither a parking permit nor an apartment lease (even home ownership) does.

The welfare of the people in particular has always been the alibi of tyrants, and it provides the further advantage of giving the servants of tyranny a good conscience.

Don't get an Illinois Drivers License or State ID card, that is what they use.
Illinois' FCCA is a prime example of the maxim that sufficiently advanced incompetence is indistinguishable from malice.

I am an Illinois resident but I own a house in Wisconsin and land in Indiana. Because my Drivers License is Illinois, I am still considered a resident of Illinois and not Wisconsin or Indiana. I do pay property tax in Wisconsin but am considered a non resident. Same for Indiana but am considered just a non resident landowner. I also spend most of my time in Illinois. That is another factor. If I was to spend most of my time in Wisconsin, I would legally have to change my state of residence.

So the point I'm making is that if you are maintaining a residence in Virginia, you should be fine. I know folks that maintain their residence in Illinois but own a condo down in Florida. Some even have a personal car registered in Florida to them that they leave down there for when they travel to their condo.
