Can anyone help me get my FOID reinstated. In October 05 I was arrested for domestic abuse and I had an order of protection placed against me (I threatened my now x-wife). The Illinois State Police confiscated my guns and revoked my gun card, I was told that is S.O.P. when someone has an order of protection placed against them in Illinois.
Since then the order of protection expired, the domestic abuse case was dropped and now my X-wife and I have a wonderful relationship, but I cant recover my guns without my FOID card.
My Lawyer has proven to be totally usless in this.
Will my FOID card be returned with my bond? Would it be valid?
Any advise or feedback will be greatly appreciated.

I think your best bet would be to hire an attorney in your area -- specifically one that has handled FOID cases (and better yet one that advertises FOID work). I really don't know anything about that process. I imagine it might take some time and be a PITA.

A lawyer is what you need

did you go to court? were you convicted of domestic abuse? If not I think it is crap that someone gets their guns confiscated, without being convicted.

Since you were not convicted and the order is no longer in effect I would call ISP Firearms Services Bureau at 217-782-7980. They should be able to help.

Since you and your ex-wife are now on good terms maybe she could write a letter to the ISP to that effect for you if that would help.

I would consider bringing civil action against the state of Illinois, maybe send a letter to the states attorney.
