We get 6 hours. Visiting is Wed-sunday. Its frustrating though because check-in starts at 2pm. well they have us park on a road and wait. then they show up to escort us to the parking lot. Visitation is to start at 2:30pm. Well they always are late. Get there to get us at 2:15-2:30. They check everyone in before taking us all together to the visiting rooms. I usually don't get to see him til about 3:15. So they take about almost an hour from us :angry: We are allowed to kiss and hug at the beginning and end of the visit for 45 seconds. We are allowed to hold hands and walk around the room together.

Our visits are one day per weekend, six hours per day. We are in one room with small tables on one end, these small tables are in front of a guards desk and in front of central control.

The other end of the room has longer tables which we prefer, even though the families with the small kids are usually back there. The kids are a trip for real. It gets pretty loud at times. But the kids are just being kids and the officers don't seem to bug you as bad back there.

It would be so nice if we could go outside, but that's a big negative!!!! Oh well, it is what it is.

Yeah we have several tables to choose from. But the tables are very low to the ground. Like a coffee table. So that we cant put our feet underneath. Its very uncomfortable. My back and shoulders are so sore from leaning over to be close to him.

Our visiting days are Wednesday thru Sunday with 2 hour visits on weekdays and 1 hour visits on the weekends. You can visit every day if you want but only once a day. There is a big visiting room with rows of chairs facing each other. Inmates on one side, visitors on the other. One short hug & kiss at the begining and again at the end of each visit. No touching during the visit itself. I WISH we had tables to sit at.

My visits are Sat and Sun from 8:30 (ish) to 3:00. It is outside under a cover. It's nice getting to be outside most of the times. It get's really hot in the summer and when it rains the roof leaks. There are two rows of picnic benches. There is a large grassy area that you can sit on and a sidewalk in the middle that you can walk down. We can hold hands as much as we want. We can get our pictures taken if my husband has a photo ducat. It's a very fun relaxed visiting yard.

My sweet one just got moved to his "home" so our first visit would have been next Sunday but I will be out of town...So for the first time in six months I will see him on 7/6. We get two days a month each for 3 1/2 hours. I am counting the minutes untill I can just touch his hand.

Our visits are the first Saturday of each month. I get to see him this Saturday!! Only once a month for 2 hours. We can hug and have a non offensive kiss at the beginning and the end. We can hold hands as long as it is on the top of the table. It is a room full of tables and chairs. There are nachos and popcorn, as well as soft drinks if you want to eat with them, while you are there.

We are allowed to kiss and hug at the beginning and end of the visit for 45 seconds.
I would die of happiness if we were allowed to kiss for 45 seconds...I can picture all th elove contained in under a minute. Right now he's 15 hours away so haven't seen him yet and if he is placed in "treatment" he'll be 10 houra away so no visits then. So here's hoping for "home" and visits like some of you have. I'd give anything for a hug right now, just to see his face!

Our visits are Thurs, Fri, Sat, Sun and Mon. Thurs and Fri are from 1:30ish to 8 and Sat thru Mon are from 8:30ish to 3. We get to hug and kiss briefly in the beginning and end. We do get to hold hands and have our arms around eachother, as long as the CO's can see both of our hands. We can take filcks, if my finacee buys them. The children on the other hand can hug and kiss and sit in his lap and pretty much hang all over him the whole time if they choose to! There is a big visiting room with several rows of chairs and "coffee" tables. There is also a very small area we can sit outside to enjoy the air. The prison has games and stuff for the children and usually a tv with cartoons on. So it's nice, but can get very very very loud!!! But it's better than not seeing him at all, is the way I look a things

Well we can go every Friday Saturday and Sunday they get 12 points a month so Fridays are one point the weekends are 2 points, we can visit from 830 am to 3pm so if you add it up its alot of hours but the visits are really nice and the gaurds are pretty laid back! We can hug and kiss at the begining and the end not really any time limit on that, and we can touch each other the whole time during the visit

He is still in County, so we get 1 hour, not a minute more, but most of the time 10-15 minutes less. It sucks!! Just when we get into a deep conversation, they hand him his pass, "times up". Drives me nuts.

My hubby's prison contact visiting hrs are Fridays from 12p-7p. Sat and Sun they are from 8a-3p. We sit in a big room that has a bunch of tables and chairs. There is a small enclosed patio outside we can go to if we want to get fresh air or stretch out. That is where you can get your picture taken if you want. You get the token from the processing lobby area before you go into your visiting room. I take one every month with him so we can look back one day and see how much he changed throughout the time he was in.
There are also board games for us to play and books for the kids. A man comes by several times throughout visiting and takes order for food they make there at the prison. Reasonably priced but you get bored of it after awhile as the "menu" seems to not change....oh yeah....we are allowed to bring $50 in ones per adult. We are allowed to hold hands the whole time we are there. My husband is in a minimum yard

As I Was Reading Your Message I Thought About The Visitation In Mississippi . I Am Not Sure About All Of The Prisons , But Where My Husband Is We Are Allowed Conjugal Visits . But Our Main Issue Is Visitation Is Only For Three Hours Every 1st Sunday And 3rd Saturday .

i hate concord visits! (maybe i shouldn't say that... maybe i should just be glad that i can see him)... the visits generally are from 6:20- 8:30 :-( but they take FOREVER TO PROCESS and they'll kick out the first couple of groups if the visitors room fills up!! So you have to strategically show up at the right time... ugh.. it sucks because you never get in there at 6:20... AND THEY TAKE FOREVER TO CALL THE GUYS DOWN! You're lucky if he gets there within 15 minutes :-0 Sorry... i've been holding that in! I CANT WAIT UNTIL HE GETS MOVED!!!!! I only drive about an hour and a half so.. i'm relatively lucky in that department. I can hug and kiss him at the beginning and end... but i can't hold his hand :-( mannnnn!

we only get to visit the first thursday every month from 8-11 :( they are always so slow so he doesnt get in the visiting room until almost 830 sometimes :angry:we can hug and kiss when i get there and when i leave. but we cant hold hands or touch each other during the visit. we usually find a way to hold each others hand somehow.

Wow, i can understand how frustrating that is cause no matter the time you get , we all want all of it. :D

Here in texas we get 2 hrs either saturday or sunday, unless you live over a certain distance then you get 4 hrs on both days . Which i am grateful for cause some ppl don't even get visits, the visits make up for us not having phone calls here in texas

Those that have night visit are lucky just to sit out there and look up in da sky and see the stars together i think are romatic. our visit got pretty good after waiting 2 hours for process and now its easy to get in and sign up and they call you and give them ur name and we are already in thier system. but the visit we can't move anywhere we have to sit at this (hallways visitation) where its 2 big tables and not enough for you to move anywhere you have to sit at the table wide enough that you can hardly hold hands we could kiss and hug at the begning and ending but time limitis maybe even 2 min cuz they watch every move they tell us to sit down..

We get visits on even days. Weekends we must have a reservation. Visits are 3 hours.

They just had a Day with Dad, it was all day long with activities for the children. They even had a cookout with semi decent food.
