I am sixteen years old and I want to obtain my FOID card but my parents
are divorced and I live with my dad in IL. He can not get his FOID
card because of a felony. How could I get mine?
It appears that you may not be eligible for a FOID card until you turn 21. Go to the ISP Website for more information and regulations. WWW.ISP.STATE.IL.US Under Agency Links on the left, click on Firearm Information. As this page explains, in addition to all other requirements, a person who is under 21 years of age must have the written consent of his or her parent or legal guardian to possess and acquire firearms and firearm ammunition. Also, he or she must not have been convicted of a misdemeanor other than a traffic offense or adjudged delinquent. The parent or legal guardian providing written consent must be eligible to possess a valid FOID card. Since your father is ineligible, unless your mother is an Illinois resident able to get a FOID card, you may have to wait. Hope that information is helpful.
