  • florida rights restoration

    haven't been able to get a straight answer from anyone so i figured i'd join the forum to get an answer. ok so back in 2001 i got in trouble for doing something very stupid, i did the whole court, probation, fines thing. haven't had so much as a parking ticket in probably 5 years. my question is this, when my probation was satisfied to the courts, did the 2 year clock start automatically to get my rights restored? i know my firearms rights are restorred 7 years after the initial 2 year wait and that's not what concerns me.

    i inquired with tallahasse and the responce i recieved wasn't very clear to me. next month will be 2 years since i last went to court and was adjudicated of charges. my offence will not allow me to have my record sealed/expunged, it wasn't anything violent. i just want to be able to register to vote for the next election as i was unable to vote for the last couple due to the situation i put myself into so long ago.

    My immediate "guess" is that you need to apply for a Pardon. To do that, I would suggest you retain an Attorney. You'll need to determine, what Civil Rights are restored automatically--if any. Again, I recommend you seek the services of an Attorney.

        Go to the office where your probation was, and ask them.

          I take it that this was a juvenile felony. Take the advice listed above...especially by Taylor.

              We always tell people that call and ask us to hire an attorney and let him figure it out. Then again, that is our answer to everyone seeking legal advice.
              When passenger of foot heave in sight, tootle the horn. Trumpet him melodiously at first, but if he still obstacles your passage then tootle him with vigor.

                I don't know exactly what the procedure is in Florida, but I would start with the Governor's office.

                Hold it....................Google is your friend

                In Florida you can even do it online

                I was right........................the Governor's office

                  i've already filled out that form on-line approx. 17 months ago, but i remember hearing something a while back about the state automatically restoring rights after 2 years but no one can confirm. i've written letters to tallahasse and have yet to recieve a single responce. i'm in occasional contact with officers down here and have told them every detail about my situation and they are amazed that some newer regulations pertaining to this situation have changed that they were unaware of. i.e. now it's 7 years to get gun rights back not 5 anymore after rights restored and it's now 2 years as opposed to 1 year for general rights restoration. i couldn't afford an attorney then and certainly can't afford one now. so am i just going to have to wait for big government to remember i'm here?

                    My guess would be that if you remember "hearing " about something and can not confim that it is true after due diligence..........................

                    It probably isn't true.


                    If you filled out the application-----------according to https://fpc.state.fl.us/Policies/Exe...rcrprocess.pdf

                    1. You have to complete the sentence
                    2. Complete supervison
                    3. Pay victim restitution
                    4. Parole Commission verifies eligbility
                    5. Governor & two memebers of the clemency board sign the paper
                    THEN you get a Restoration of Rights Certificate.

                    I fail to see anything "automatic" about the procedure.


                    I would fill out the form again and see if it goes faster

                      ok so i found on this page it say's rights will automatically be restored after a review blah blah blah https://fpc.state.fl.us/FAQClemency.htm however it doesn't give a timeline as to when rights are restored. also says 8 years after supervision, firearms rights are restorred which i guess is cool if america still has firearms after this current administration is done molesting the constitution.
