FOID Reinstatement Lawyer
Under the Second Amendment, you have the right to bear arms. However, before you can own a gun – or even ammunition – in the state of Illinois, you must have a Firearm Owner Identification (FOID) card. These cards are valid for a decade as long as you continue to qualify for one. However, if at any point you don’t meet the qualifications for the card, you may receive a revocation notice.
Hyland Law, Ltd. works with Illinois residents for FOID reinstatement. Our team can help you collect all the information you need to appeal your revocation. Even if your appeal is initially denied, you may have the opportunity to appeal it again in the court system.
Why Your FOID Card May Have Been Revoked
There are a few reasons why you could no longer qualify for an FOID card. Being convicted of a felony or domestic violence, struggling with substance abuse or receiving mental health treatment means you are no longer eligible to have an FOID card.
However, in some cases, you may still be able to have your FOID reinstated even after these circumstances. Our team identifies any evidence that could support your case so that we can build a strategy for your FOID reinstatement.
How to Get Your FOID Card Reinstated
Getting your FOID card back can be an involved process, but our knowledgeable and skilled attorneys are here to help you through the process. It’s important to know that even if your FOID card has been revoked and you plan on appealing, you must still surrender your FOID card and complete what’s called a Firearm Disposition Record before your appeal can be considered.
