Hello everyone. Just wondering if anyone else is currently in the appeals process for a FOID card? In a few days it will be 5 months for me. It has been a LONG time since I had a FOID card, I know the wait for an appeal can be quite long, just curious to know how everyone else is doing.

I'm having problems with ISP, of course. In June a temporary order of protection was taken out against me by an individual who has been harassing my family and directly prior to filing this order was arrested for battering my spouse. My FOID and CLL were subsequently made invalid. I went to hearing with an attorney and won in the hearing as the claims being made against me were false. The court issued an order dismissing the OP. The new court order releasing me from the OP states that it has been dismissed because there was no evidence. On July 3rd I filled my appeal with ISPFSB. One July 8th my FOID was reissued. Ive spoken to customer service many times, and some have said that they would make inquiries about it how ever Ive been told there is no time frame for this sort of thing and it seems my appeal is taking a long time. Is their any one I can contact to get this mess sorted out?

Came across this forum and was wondering what the wait for an appeal might take? I had my FOID revoked about 2 and half years ago due too a felony case ( Theft ) pending ended up this year finishing probation and having my conviction expunged at the termination of my probation. Sent the court given documents along with the petition and wavier few weeks ago. Just wanted to see how long the turn around might be as I may not be in IL within a year and would figure it would be a lot easier whe I move to my new state knowing my conviction is gone rather than apply and get denied there.

My foid card was revoked back in September of 2016 for a misdemeanor battery charge. I received 6 months court supervision so there was actually no conviction. My supervision ended in January of 2017. I sent all my appeal paperwork in back in March of this year and it is now October and my foid card is still revoked. Is there any reason theyre dragging their feet about it and is there anything else I can do to speed up the process? I sent them the disposition papers of my court supervision along with all of the required paperwork. I am an avid hunter and this will be my second hunting season I will be missing. Any and all help is appreciated. Thanks
Did you submit the request for FOID appeal and the waiver for investigation

Yes all the required paperwork was submitted back in March. I haven’t heard from them and any time I check it still says revoked. I usually call there once every week or so and they just say they are still working on it.
sounds like you've done all the right stuff. Please send me a private message with your full legal name, date of birth, and your FOID card number and I will submit an inquiry to see if we can find out what's going on.

Heads up, my CCL went active this afternoon, anyone know the typical turn around on my card? Feels good to have my rights restored, I gotta say. Thanks Molly B. for the help.
On a side note, a weird thing went on with my ISP porthole today before my cards went active. I logged on this morning and saw that my status went from APPEAL UNDER REVIEW to UNDER BOARD REVIEW. It was allso was asking for me to respond and gave a description of an objection that was over turned when I was first issued my card back in 2016. I attempted to contact ISP at about 2 pm to no avail. I called back a hour or so later, and after a 30 min wait I got through to an operator and told her about the issue. She looked me up and asked if I would stay on hold while she spoke with her supervisor. After she returned to the line, she informed me that my appeal had moved out of the appeals department and would be made active some time in the near future unless it had to go to some other person for an additional approval. I thanked her and returned to my ISP porthole to find that my status was now under review. I just looked at my web porthole to see if anything might have change in the past few hours, and sure enough if find it to say ACTIVE.

When you file your appeal I think it automatically changes. Did you already submit an appeal request? It should be located somewhere near where it says revoked. Also on the ISP FSB web page is has a section on the frequently asked questions page about the types of appeal processes.

Im not sure unless your appeal was denied, I know I went thru the appeal process for my FOID in August. In my instance my foid had been revoke for little over a month before the issue was corrected. After I submitted the correct paper work my FOID was made active about five days after my appeal was made. Im not sure of your situation, but you can always call ISP hit 0 and wait to speak to someone. You could be on hold for an hour. When someone does answer the phone, ask them what the status of your application is and just see what information you can get out of them. Be aware though they can be very selective with what they tell you. Alot of times they give you a short answer or some thingkind of vague and also you most likely wont give you any sort of time frame.
