  1. You are doing everything right. DL address then renew AND change address for FOID (will auto update CCL and fee). It will be a while before your new FOID and CCL come, especially with the address change. Your FFL should accept your current CCL and run that for any background check (they are or will be the same number)
  2. Bob, do you have any experience with this? I do. He has already submitted the application. There is NOTHING he can do until the ISP replies to the application, NOTHING. No matter what his record is he must wait on the ISP reply. EVERYTHING else is a waste of his time. To the OP. You will get a lot of "expert" advice here. Choose any answer you want but reality is, you have started the process and you must wait it out. Every time you alter the process the waiting period starts all over again. So what you are saying is that the OP should not check his criminal record in Cook County at all. Just sit and twiddle his thumbs helplessly. If he checks his record and sees no felonies, then he's good and can stop worrying. If he checks his record and sees a felony, he can start researching expungement or sealing programs. Telling someone to sit on their butt and do nothing is not productive. Nor is giving useless advice. It may or may not give him peace of mind. It WILL NOT change want he has started. He MUST wait on the ISP reply before he can do anything else. Sending someone on a wild goose chase is not productive. I've walked the walk, have you or is it just YOUR opinion?

  4. Non-violent felony over 20 years is pretty trouble free. They will tell you why your were denied (if you are). You will need to send them back a letter explaining how you have changed and wont do that again. Plus short letters from 3 references. Hang in there. You'll make it.
  5. Welcome to the forum Frank, I have helped 2 people through the process you have started. Don't waste your money on a lawyer yet. You took the proper first step. If your felony was non-violent you will get your FOID after a couple more steps. The ISP will either approve your FOID application on turn it down. When they deny your application they will send you instructions on how to appeal. It is a simple process and you can do it all yourself. Just follow the instructions the ISP sends you. I really doubt a lawyer can cut any time out of the process. AND don't waste your time running down rap sheets and arrest records. My 2 guys didn't need them.
  6. I applied for address change on Jan 31, 2020. Went "active" on June 29, 2020. In hand July 15, 2020 Welcome to the forum.
  7. I think a few here need to review the Justifiable Use of Force Laws. I live at the end of a gravel road, lane, driveway or whatever you want to call it. I built the road, I paid for the road, the road is on land I own. If a crowd of "protesters" comes down my road do you expect me to hide in my house?
  8. Second Amendment Rights are blind in my world. They see neither political affiliation nor skin color as qualifiers for participation. I have ran a few hundred people through my concealed carry classes and while I do not know how the majority votes, I do know that I have trained a LOT of Democrats and a LOT of Republicans. I find it very naive to believe that owning a firearm will somehow turn a person's political priorities 180 degrees. I live in a rural area where its hard to tell the Liberals from the Conservatives without yard signs. Both parties know that the police are probably not going to be there in an emergency and firearm ownership is common.
  9. The only solution I see at this time is for you to scan the signed certificate and keep the file on hold until the window opens to upload, then log into their account and upload the certificate . . . That's what I was thinking. I would need their login info. That puts responsibility on ME to keep the STATE's system working. It would be much easier it there was the option to file now OR later, not just shut down the portal.
  10. J Q, I do a LOT of senior citizens that have trouble on the net. I'm seeing 2 day trips for my people, first for the class because they are worried about their licenses expiring and a second for me to upload their cert (when who knows that will be) kinda like the PITA buying a gun.
  11. No I did not I thought I was adding to your comment. Sorry, I'm was quick to include ol' John Q Public, everyone has thin skin these days. Never the less: It pisses me off that a programmer is too lazy to add an option.
  12. Great..... as part of my renewal service I take their picture and scan their certs and upload them to ISP. It makes no sense at all to take that option away. WHY? Can this be fixed? Unless the reason they did that is so they, can kick the can down the road, get caught up on the huge backlog of FOID and first time CCLs. By not processing the renewals, that would free up some resources, but sooner or later the get the balloon payment. It's because it is the easiest way to "deal" with it. Screw due process, some people are having trouble finding renewal classes. Rather than help people like me that has bent over backwards to comply with the COVID-19 rules and keep classes going, just shut the submission portal down. Typical Illinois solution. Molly who in the H**L do you have a phone # to that I can call. As one of the very first instructors approved, the ISP sent me an email asking if I helped my students file because of the original confusion. Since then I have let it be known that I help file as part of my service. Now this crap.
