Thought yall might be interested. Applied for my new GFL in Newton Co. on August 1. I received my GFL on August 7. The envelope was metered on August 3 and postmarked on August 4. The lady at the probate ct told me that they were not experiencing any slowdowns even with the changes to the renewal requirements. No kidding. Unfortunately, Newton Co. Probate Ct and Sheriff's office both demanded SSN and employer. Sheriff's office stated both were required. Probate didnt say one way or the other.
