Felony and certain Misdemeanors
If your Firearm Owner's Identification (FOID) Card was revoked or your FOID application was denied because you were convicted of a felony and have not previously had your firearm possession rights restored through administrative or judicial action pursuant to the FOID Act, you are not permitted to obtain a Firearm Owner's Identification Card unless you receive such relief. The information required for relief is listed on the attached checklist. Please use this to ensure all paperwork required is provided because the relief process will not begin until the FCRB receives all necessary documentation.
Upon receipt of all documents listed above, your application will be actioned. Submission of the required documents does not guarantee the granting of relief; however, it is required to begin the review process. If you fail to provide all required documentation within 60 days after receipt of the notice of FOID Card denial or FOID Card revocation, your request for relief will be denied and the case will be closed.
