    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.

    Check back with the court clerk.

    I think you can probably prepare and file the petition for an amended disposition without the aid of an attorney.
    It's a pretty simple process - submit the request using the form they require, explaining that you simply need the date clarified, and attach a copy of the disposition with the problematic date.
    Shouldn't cost more than a simple filing fee ($20 or so?).

    So this "specialist" actually thinks the judge was in a time capsule and went ahead in time by 6 months and signed it?? Again, where is the common sense in this country. The dumbing down of America.

    Can you imagine my frustration while trying to explain to him that the judge WOULD NOT have signed a future date on a legal document?

    The government tries to avoid hiring people who can think for themselves.

    I think by being nice and polite they very well may not charge you anything for your troubles.

    A backup for your primary permit . . . that's your problem right there. Why would you go to the expense of a "backup" permit?

    Ditto! A backup to your primary...permit? Are you so concerned that Texas is suddenly becoming a Socialist Republic? Better to spend your money on gold coins & an open-ended Costa Rican visitor's visa.

    I don't know the reason behind the OP wanting a "backup", but one possibility is that the addition of a FL license opens up a few additional states that don't honor the TX license... Ohio and Washington, I believe.

    You definitely need to resolve the problem. You have now opened a can of worms up. In the future if you apply for a permit and the question is asked "Have you ever been denied a permit?" You must answer "Yes" to the question. You will then have to go through more paperwork explaining and clearing it up. There are times you should let a sleeping dog lie, this was one of them.

    Some people must really like to travel to a lot of places.

    Either someone on a power trip, or a total bozo. My guess is its a power trip.....they are given the authority to question everything and deny without using common sense or logic.
