This is a discussion on Wisconsin CCW Permit Time...Keep us posted! within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by presa_dad Mailed application : November 7th Check cashed : November 21st Received denial letter : December 24th Hand delivered appeal and fingerprints ...
I sent in my application on November 1st. According to my bank, the check cleared on November 5th. In spite of the fact that the Wisconsin DOJ seems to have no issue with taking my money, they have sent me neither a license nor a rejection letter. According to their own rules, I should have received one or the other within 45 days - which would have been December 20th.
Here we are, 18 days later, and still no word. Does anyone know of any recourse I might have in this matter? I find the entire matter very frustrating, but as far as I can tell there don't seem to be any penalties for failing to meet their deadline. In other words, they MUST send me my license or a letter of rejection by the deadline - unless, of course, they don't feel like it, in which case it sucks to be me.
Anyone who had a similar problem and was able to solve it, or with ideas on what steps I should take next, please help!
I had the same problem but not as bad as you. I sent app on Nov. 1 they cashed my check on Nov 8. I received my CCL on Dec 15. exactly 45 days. I was calling the DOJ every week and got to know the person that answered the phone. She was helpful. Her name is Cindy at 608-266-1221. She put me in touch with the head of criminal investigation Walt Neverman and he said if I did not get my CCL within a week after the 45th day to call him. His direct number is 608-264-6207. You sure have been patient. I would call Walt on Monday at 8:00am. Just saying.
PS Be nice however. You are just concerned that you CCL is lost in the mail or something. You know what I mean.

Another family member mailed hers 20 DEC so we will see how hers goes. That would have been a bad time to mail Christmas and new year holiday.

Well I figured today had to be the day since others with the same mailing/check clearing dates were getting their permits.
Check Cleared 11/28
Best of luck to those still waiting!
