Does anyone know if there is a maximum amount of time an inmate is in reception? Does it always vary? My boyfriend is at DVI and I have yet to hear anything from him since begining of Dec.

my guy was in reception for like 4 months! ideally, it is supposed to be from 60 to 90 days. i guess it just depends on the prisons.

Mine was in reception for less than 2 months. It all depends on what level of security they are and when a bed opens up in that level of prison.

My fiance is at Donovan and he has been in the reception for .... oh say "EIGHT MONTHS", so it really does vary.

I can't imagine my husband being in reception for so long! He's only been there for 11 days. Inn his letter, he said they told him he'd be there for a month. I guess we'll see.

Babyluvsears, my fiance was there about 30days...but that was 3years ago...hopefully your boyfriend won't be at DVI too long...

Also, why don't you send your boyfriend a stationary that he can write on this link I wrote about the stationary will tell you what you can enclose:

I send one often...cost about $ send priorty mail...he usually gets this in 2 to 3 days...because there isn't much to check like letters or cards...well I hope you hear from him soon...let me know if you have questions...

Back in 2004, my man was at DVI for 5 months. And now... he just went there December 21, and he wrote me and told me he would be there for about 4 months before they move him to Corcoran. So, we will see.
