  1. Hi everyone, I’m new on the forum and hoping to find help regarding my FOID appeal process. I was denied my FOID card because I stayed overnight in a hospital for mental distress more than 5 years ago. I was emotionally distraught, had to flee to a neighbor’s house to feel safe, after being forced to attend a visitation with my father (who was relentlessly being hurtful towards my mother so I verbally defended her), which lead to a terrible argument (I felt very threatened). I called the police and they were very kind to me but concerned regarding how much distress I was under; I was offered (at the time I thought it was only a positive/helpful opportunity without any concern of future negative consequence) the option of going to the ER to talk to someone and stay at the hospital overnight. So I agreed and I stayed voluntarily. After receiving my denial letter, I understand that, while it has been over 5 years, I will now need a mental health evaluation by a physician which must be sent directly to the IL State Police. However, I am unsure where to begin and I’m unfamiliar with the rest of the appeal process. Currently, this is all the information I know about the appeal process for my specific situation. I don’t know if I need any other certified documents, forms, a lawyer (I currently do not think I can afford an attorney), etc. to get my rights back. I am simply looking for some guidance please. If anyone may offer advice and/or information such as links to papers/forms, articles, websites, etc., or has been through this process and may recommend a list of steps that I must do to complete the FOID appeal process, such help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
  2. Hi all, I have a couple of questions that I haven't been able to answer by looking online. I am moving to California for a year and will be leaving my firearms with family members (who have valid FOIDs). Obviously, I won't be able to take certain firearms to California and wish to keep them in Illinois. Does my FOID become invalid if I live outside of Illinois for around a year? Do I have to notify someone about the residency change? Is it possible to keep my FOID valid when I am away for that period? Can I store them with family members who possess a FOID? Thanks in advance!
  3. I was wondering am I able to get a FOID card at 17 years old with parental consent in Illinois?
  4. Hey everyone, I'm new to this forum. However, I have been reading posts off and on here for sometime. I decided to finally make an account. I just applied for my FOID card 3 days ago on my 21st birthday. It appears that they processed my payment either sometime yesterday or sometime today as I now have an application number in addition to a FOID number when I log into their site. Hopefully this is a signal of the FOID process moving along in a timely fashion. I did notice some few strange things when checking up on my application today. Now that they issued me an application number after processing my payment, I have been able to click links to edit my name, address, etc. I noticed that when I clicked on my name, the ISP has added a Maiden Name which is listed as my current name. I am a male, and this is my "original" last name that I've had since birth. I definitely didn't type anything into this field when I applied. So I went ahead and removed it and a message came up saying the submitted date on my application has changed to the current date of when I changed this information. I was wondering if any of you experienced anything like this? I also clicked the link for my address (which was correct) and I noticed it was asking for the past 10 years of residencies. I went ahead and filled out my last few addresses that made up more than 10 years and the same message came up on my screen. I hope this doesn't reset the 30 day period of waiting. If it did, it's not too big of a deal as I only applied 3 days ago but any delay still isn't preferred. Also, does anyone have an idea of what the current wait times might be? I previously lived in a state that didn't have any sort of firearm permit so this is slightly new to me as someone who will be a firearm owner for the first time. I would appreciate some input. Thanks!
  5. Does anyone know how to apply for FOID cards online for your children now? Remember back in March they put this out: When I log in - it takes me to my own summary page. I can renew my own FOID or CCL but there is no other option to request a FOID. I am wondering if each of my kids have to create an account on the ISP website?
