Re: "Waiting Room"

Am I in the clear?

When I applied, I was stuck at the background check (3 yellow: fingerprints, background check, and "print pending completion of background check") for months.

I finally received a letter saying they needed more time (likely due to being from out of state and having a very old record there) and that they were adding on another 180 days to continue their review. Disappointed and busy with life, I kind of forgot about checking the status daily like I used to.

Today, I checked the status for the first time this year, and here's the thing: if I enter my old state's driver license, it STILL shows 3 yellow and is unchanged. But if I instead type in my more recent Texas DL (and I never used to do this because the original app was under the old state ID), to my surprise it's all green except for the one bottom yellow "LTC: Print Pending"

Is my wait finally over and am I in the clear? I do think it's weird that although I only submitted one application, I can find the app online with 2 different state IDs and they have different statuses vs each other.

Re: "Waiting Room"

Literally nothing. No new documents had to be uploaded. I just had to tell them my new TX ID # over the phone, which they already had on file, and they said it would now resume processing. Unbelievable this didn't occur on its own with some automated process, and I had to call it in myself to resume.

Still waiting. Sigh. I have a horrible feeling I'm going to have to wait close to the 60 day limit. I'm from California, couple speeding tickets, and a misdemeanor from nine years ago. It's nothing that will disqualify me. I've been purchasing firearms in California with their checks and waiting periods just fine. In fact, it was dismissed and expunged a few years ago. Still, that's probably why I have to wait 2 months. SIGH someone reassure me
So... at what point can I freak out? I am now firmly past the 60 days from 8/13. Still no changes.
Maybe you should give them a call?
What a phone call it was...
So I just moved here in August, then applied with my out of state ID. Rec'd confirmation of all documents received. In mid-August I changed my DL from out of state to TX. I didn't think that would affect my application. About a month after "all documents received" I emailed asking for an update, and a few days later a human emailed back saying all docs received, nothing needed (keep in mind I have had my TX ID for a couple weeks now), still pending. Fast forward to today, where I'm well over the 60 days. They told me that when I switched my DL from out of state to TX, my application effectively went from complete to incomplete. They said it isn't their responsibility to tell people their application is incomplete; it's the responsibility of the applicant to make sure everything is uploaded. Uh, ok, I get your logic that you don't want to chase people down for incomplete applications, but my application was already complete! And then it became incomplete, I wasn't notified, and then my application just stopped processing (even though I check the website everyday and it said processing). And don't get me started on the fact that a human told me, well after my DL changed to TX, that my app was still complete and still processing.

So long story short no matter what I could try and argue, I'm completely screwed and my 60 days starts over from today, not from early August. They can't just backdate my start date to August. I was really mad earlier today. Now I'm just sad.

Re: "Waiting Room"

Is it normal that the fingerprints has been yellow for all this time as well? I get that the various checks with all the places I've lived all over California is taking its time, but fingerprints has not been green this entire time. Does fingerprints and approval typically go green at the same time? Or should I reach out to Identigo and see if they messed up?
