Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only. Please feel free to ignore any phone service request, the expert does not send those unless asked by customer and they are sent by the site automatically.

Even though the governor of VA restored your basic civil rights in VA, in order to get your firearm rights restored, you must file a petition for pardon with the Pennsylvania board of pardon and parole with restoration of firearms rights. You must get the firearm restoration from the governor of Pennsylvania, since the VA court cannot give you firearm rights taken away by a sister state. The letter you received telling you to go to circuit court is a form letter for people who were convicted in VA, but you were not convicted in VA, so you would need to go to PA to seek your firearms rights restored.

Please do not forget to leave positive feedback by clicking on the 5 stars at the top of your page, as the experts are not employees of the site and get no credit for spending time with customers unless they leave positive feedback. Thank you.
