    Called Cobb Probate office to see if they could give me an update on my GFL. It's been 60 days and she told me that they hadn't got anything back from GBI. The question I have is, if other counties all have to go through GBI, how can some people in some counties get their's within weeks????? It can't be me...I'm squecky clean!

    A. She's lying.
    B. Lazy government workers are sitting on your application.
    C. Localized fluctuations in the space-time continuum.
    D. Someone with your name isn't squeaky clean.
    E. Cobb County probate court doesn't feel you are professional enough, and are drawing it out as long as possible.

    I vote E. The Cobb Co. probate court is the devil.

    It is a joke. It comes from a video of a LEO that says he is the only person in the room professional enough to have a gun and then he shoots himself.

    I think he's saying the probate court only wants professionals (LEOs) to carry guns so they will take their sweet time issuing a GFL to a lowley, unprofessional, citizen.

    Have you checked with the GBI to see whether what they say is even true?

    Did they even ask you your name before stating that?

    No to first question, should I? What would I do if the GBI says they just received my information...call them back and tell them they are the cause for delay? I don't know, it seems to me we're at there mercy.
    Yes to the second.
    What really concerned me was that the check I had made out to Cobb Probate hasn't cleared yet...the lady told me that there have been many calls regarding similar issues but she attributed it to them just recently changing their banks?

    larz,

    Please keep a couple of things in mind. Some of us, me included, claim to have a sense of humor that new folks find confusing at first.

    More importantly, the various Probate Courts have, for decades, been able to do things however they chose, with no oversite. Due to the efforts of a small number of people, Malum being one of them, the rocks are being turned over. We now have a good idea of the paperwork flow, how long the process takes, and who's holding things up. Malum's question is relevent in that in most cases the paperwork to the GBI is submitted, processed and returned to the Probate Court within a few days, a copuple of weeks at most. That includes submissions to the FBI.

    One of the things that confirming the status of submissions to the GBI/FBI through the Sheriff's office is that when you call the Probate Court back and you tell them when everything was processed and returned they will know that they will have a hard time blowing smoke in your ear. Especialy when you quote ORI numbers, State statutes and case law. All of which can be found here.

    The information will help if you chose to contact your State Rep. and Senator with pointed questions. Like where the F is my GFL and why aren't you doing something about it! (A call to your county commissioner may get an explanation as to why your check hasn't been deposited. Unless it's Joe Thompson in which case you're out of luck.)

    Once you know the process things are easy (See, I told you I had a sense of humor). Hang in there you will eventualy get your GFL.

    larz, I suspect, because experience has shown this to be true, that the GCIC is not the source of your delay. I was merely suggesting that you confirm this and then go back to contact the probate court (which perhaps, just maybe, lied to you).

    Guys, I think you're sensing a tone in my responses that's not there....I have a tremendous sense of humor and certainly do not want to appear combative or ungrateful. Thanks for the help.

    But, in all seriousness, you can put the probate court's claim to the test with a simple phone call once you have the fingrprinting agency's ORI number.

    Every time this has been done, it turns out the probate court was being disingenuous.

    GCIC turnaround time is really quick.

    Waiting in Cobb

    Hi guys,
    I've been lurking for a while, but this is my first post. I applied for a GFL in Cobb on June 20. Employer and SS# were on the form and I don't recall it being optional.

    $24 M.O. for the GBI and $23 Cash for Probate. After filling out the application and the 3 fingerprint cards, she sent me over to the Sheriff's office (literally across the hall) for fingerprinting. The lady there was extremely nice & efficient. She took my prints digitally.

    I had actually gone to the Sheriff's Dept. first as the instructions on the Probate web site were not exactly clear and she was nice enough to explain what I had to do. When I got to the Probate office, the clerk told me it was too late to apply on that day, but since I said that I had already been the Sheriff's department, had the money order, and told her I could write fast, she let me do it anyway.

    My record is completely clean and I always pass NICS instantly. So, I guess it'll be Halloween before I get the license? Is that the consensus?

    Jeffrey

    The Cobb Probate court told me 4-6 months, asked for my SSN/Employer, so our situations are similar. I don't know if that counts as a consensus.

    Halloween? You're optimistic. :)

    FWIW, I'm giving them their 60 day legal allowance, then I'm going to make a nuisance of myself. I've got my ORI information ready.

    Is the ORI number GA033000?
