    FL license problems

    So I got the mail today and about when I saw the envelope from FL...

    Then I opened it. There is a problem with my citizenship status

    I was born on an American AFB overseas in England, but I am a U.S. Citizen. I have an American birth certificate, and U.S. passport. There is no question about that.

    Well I called and sat on hold forever, and when they did pick the line went dead... Basically the letter said I need to send proof of citizenship, but don't want it to sit in the mailroom for another 2 months.

    I can't get someone on the phone and have no clue what to do from here...

    Help

    Sadly if Im reading your location right, not much other then send a copy of your birth certificate.
    I would try and keep calling while you send this in, but send it in ASAP.
    I know not what this "overkill" means.

    You'll find the Dept of Ag to be very friendly, and I'm certain they will not put your app in line again...it won't be too long now.2

    I had a similar issue. They wanted proof of employment so they sent me a letter asking for documents that stated start date, manager's name and contact etc. I sent it to them via fedex and they sent me an email saying they received it the next day. DOL WA is pretty good in keeping you informed.

    You'll be ok, just don't mail it. Unfortunately for me, I did that with some additional docs they've asked for, and waited another 3 months after that. Fax it to them, or email the scan (they can give you the email address when you call), or both. That'll expedite the processing.

    Well I faxed my stuff in and finally got a hold of someone who told me that it will take 5 days to get the info because they work on a paperless system. When they get it, they will call me... and when they do it will be another 30 days...

    Anyone know anything about this?

    I had the same exact problem. I was born in the Philippines because my dad was stationed there. (U.S. Navy) I wasn't even there a month or two before we moved back to the states. I've lived in florida for the past 22 years. (i'm 32 now)

    You would think that if they can figure out whether or not you are a criminal, they could look in some database to see if you're a freakin citizen??

    Anyways, after I got the letter about the proof of citizenship...I emailed them scanned documents, Faxed them copies, and then certified mailed them all on the same day. I gave them absolutely no excuses, LOL.

    I submitted my FL CCW application on 3-1-09...and I received it TODAY! 6-26-09 is my Independence day, haha..

    There's not a whole lot you can do. The sooner you comply with what DOACS wants, the sooner your permit will arrive. It's unfortunate that this has happened. You can try to call again, but the amount of calls will probably make them indifferent to your requests. Comply as quickly as you can.

    GOOD LUCK!
