IMPORTANT NOTE: The California Courts website now has a revised Prohibited Persons Relinquishment Form (PPRF). The PPRF is required for defendants convicted of an offense that makes them subject to Penal Code section 29810, prohibiting gun ownership, possession, and custody or control.Unlike the original form, the new form does not ask for the defendant’s, or the defendant’s designee’s, place of birth, citizenship status, country of citizenship, and (if not a citizen) Alien Registration number or I-94 number.

The new form says, at the top left “(Rev. 01/2018).”

Alternative method of obtaining the document:

Go to the California Courts web site, at http://www.courts.ca.gov/home.htm

In the search engine at the top right, type BOF1022.

Click on that link(you may have to wait for it to load).

Make sure that you are using the new form, as revised in January 2018.

Using this method to get the form is useful in case anyone (e.g., D.A. or Court) questions whether this is an official form: you can tell or show them exactly how you got it, from an official source.
