Hello, I am an attorney and I will be helping you. Nice to meet you.

Please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

I am sorry to hear about your son.

And I have some bad news and some good news. I think you will be happy with the answer.

In the state of California, there is a ban on owning a firearm after a 5150 for FIVE years. Meaning, the person cannot possess a firearm for 5 years after the incident.

(Note: California is a lot more lenient than the Federal rule - which is a ban for lifetime!!)

Here comes the good news:

Section 8103(f)(5) allows an individual, like your son, to petition the court ONE TIME IN THE FIVE YEARS, to have the court restore their rights to own a firearm. Note, he can only ask for this special exception one time.

Because he can only make this request one time, I strongly advise that you get a local lawyer to assist you in the filling out the forms so you make sure to do it correctly. Remember, he will not be allowed to ask twice, so it has to be done properly.

I wish you good luck with this!

If I have answered your question, please click YES/ACCEPT on your screen. It does not cost you anything to click and it is the only way I can get credit for my work, and of course a positive 5 star rating would be appreciated. You can still ask me all your follow up questions, even after you please click YES/ACCEPT.

I wish you all the best in 2018.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
