You may speak with the treating physician to confirm that the physician filed the four required forms with the Miami-Dade Clerk of Court. The four required forms are:
- Cover Sheet
- Physician’s Finding & Certification by an Examining Physician of Person’s Imminent Dangerousness
- Patient’s Notice and Acknowledgement
- Application for Voluntary Admission of an Adult
After the forms are filed, a Judge or General Magistrate will review them. If the Judge or General Magistrate deems it appropriate, the Judge or General Magistrate will sign an order directing the Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts to report your friend/family member/acquaintance into the Florida Department of Law Enforcement’s database. The database includes the names of people who are prohibited from purchasing firearms and who are ineligible to apply for or retain a concealed weapon or firearms license.
