how much are the visiting packages? and what days are family visits? do you get a little bit of a choice of the days at all? like if you have work with your work schedule or anything like that????

Rlsbby4eva 05-17-2013 02:28 PM

For what i know right now its only weekends (Fri-Sun morning). The packages are whatever you order. So it depends..

Does anyone know how often you get Family Visits?

Rlsbby4eva 06-02-2013 10:41 PM

Not 100% sure but around very 45 days. First come first serve basis.

FV Question
 
Hi, I'm a prison wife at another prison, and am trying to find out if any facilities do 'extended FV's?' We currently have 2 nights with our inmates, but we've heard that maybe you have 3 night stays there? Thanks in advance to anyone who answers :o

Rlsbby4eva 07-29-2013 04:54 PM

So now vsp is having weekday visits.

fv huts 4 out of 10 being used
 
4 out of ten of these huts are being used for what they were initially built for and now that the population is way past capacity the waiting will be longer. Who can this matter be brought up to?

I heard there is a possibility for extended family visits. The OP for VSP does mention this possibility, and also the rules and criteria. As far as I know, only inmates who don't get regular familiy visits can get them, and the visitor has to be out of state.

Maybe you can submit this issue to the Family Council?

My hubby ended up calling and he said the prison has an order form with list of food..so he just told me what to order and I called it in

Donna May 01-19-2015 11:30 PM

About how much are we looking at for food?
I'm not rolling in it, so a price range would be nice.

Current info for Family Visits?
 
Hello ladies!

I had a question reguarding Family Visit at VSP. I was reading through the old threads so I wanted a current up-to date information. Are family visit between 30 to 45 days? Do you order food from a store or through the web site for family visit packages?

Thanks!

rubensreyna 07-04-2016 11:10 PM

Visits are every 30 days. You can check in tues and check out thurs or check in Friday and check out Monday. You order food through a vendor. We use Walkenhorst. You order your dairy, fruit, sandwich bread and salad from the prison. Check the IFC site at the prison website. They are great with info for everything and have the fv check in list on what items you can bring in. You are only allowed 2-4oz bottles of liquid to bring in, if ypu wrar contact lenses the solution is a freebie, no body wash only bar soap. Liquid make up must be in a plastic container but this does not count towards the 2 bottles. I found a couple of different brands at Wal Mart. Everything must be factory sealed. They also have a "library" of movies you can choose from to watch. Enjoy your visit.

Family Visits at VSP Chowchilla
 
Has anyone here had family visits at VSP Chowchilla? If so I had a couple of questions as my husband and I have never had a& family visit because he's a lifer with parole. I have heard if you and up with a visit during the week you get 3 nights and weekend is 2 nights. Also, are there stoves inside the apts or is it microwaves. Do we get to being shampoo etc or does that have to be ordered as well as food? Thank You in advance to anyone that can answer these questions!!!!
