Help with permit denial in FL
Last August I sent off for my FL CFL so I could have it as a backup to my primary permit for peace of mind. They received my application on 9-4-12, and in December I received a letter requesting paperwork pertaining to a prior arrest. I expected this so I sent the paperwork as directed, and expected that to be the end of it. Well I just received another letter stating I need to send more paperwork. I called and spoke with the Document Specialist and here's the deal. On the disposition paperwork I sent regarding the dismissed case, there is a judge's signature with date. The judge signed and dated the disposition on 6-19-03. She wrote the date sloppy so the year 03 looks a little bit like a 13. To me it is clearly a 03, and the way the document is worded it is obvious that this case has long been settled, but the document specialist won't accept this as proof of my eligibility. The court clerk's office advised me I would have to petition the judge to submit an amended disposition. That takes money and time. Meanwhile I have 30 days to comply with the Fl Dept of Ag, or they deny me. So would it be best to hire an attorney in Florida? Or hire one locally to file for an amended disposition which would take 2-3 months minimum? Any advise is appreciated.
