Here is a link to the Interstate Compact Commission for Adult Offender Supervision, ICAOS, step by step instructions for him to apply for a parole transfer to Arizona.
https://www.interstatecompact.org/step-by-step

They have rules for both mandatory and discretionary transfers, and they will decide based on his application and history.

Can his California PO office hurt his chances? Probably yes, but he needs to determine the appropriate way to apply.

Default Looking for insight

Hello looking to gain some insight from you all,
My husband and his twin brother were sentenced to the same sentence- non violent , first time offenders- 10 years- and 3 years into the sentence had the rest of the time suspended and are immediately eligible for parole. I have moved from South Dakota to Minnesota and now own a home with their sister. Both have applied for interstate compact to Minnesota and we do know their pay work is in Mn hands now. We are at the 4 week mark that MN has had it, with no contact from any P.I. or anyone. Other inmates tell him we need to be calling po for our county and trying to get it moving . In my thinking I don't want to be pissing off the wrong person by calling and bothering him, any advice would be good

Interstate Compact works on a timeline... our po waited until 4days before his time frame ran out. It is a hurry up and wait situation. Bank on it taking the full 90 days. My husband was released on the 87th day. Prayers and good wishes sent to you all. I did send emails to the sending states compact office and they were really good about giving updates

ICAOS approval is based on the family connections, housing, and jobs they have available in Minnesota versus South Dakota. If the brothers qualify for a mandatory transfer too, they should both be approved.

Most government actions are driven by deadlines, but I hope the MN POs decide your cases quickly.

My boyfriend and I have been together for 14 years And we’re planning on getting married 10 years ago but, he had a 10 year sentence and his caseworker at the prison messed up the paperwork so he did not get a night but he did not get approved either. We are going to get married the day he gets out. Should he be able to get a fairly quick transfer I live in another state with a seven-year-old and we’re ready to start our family it’s been a long time!

Is it better to complete the interstate compact agreement after he's out on actual parole? I've heard doing it before is more difficult.

Once released & out on parole, it is my understanding that PO's may not approve a move until the parolee has shown that s/he can follow the parole stipulations.

I would think it would be easier to apply for IC before release. I am not an attorney....these are solely my opinions based on experience.

I don't know why MA wouldn't accept an offender for Interstate Compact (IC), unless the offender didn't fit the criteria. Here is a link to the Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision website. The rules & the process for applying can be found on their page: HERE. FYI: Your man will have to have immediate family in Massachusetts according those IC Rules.

IC also has a page specifically for info about MA HERE.

Thank you!! He is trying the IC before getting paroled. Hopefully they will approve, I guess all we can do is try! He wont be on parole long, about 8 months, so if not we will have to deal with being apart another 8 months & fly out for visits. If we were married they would almost definitely approve it, but hes still legally married & she will not sign for divorce.

If you're not married, I wouldn't count on being approved. We were married and didn't get approved.

Be sure he follows the rules in applying for the ICAOS transfer. If he qualifies for a "mandatory" one, that's great. If not, apply anyway (from prison first), hope for the best, but don't make plans until you know it has been approved. I hope you guys succeed.

I know!! The chances are slim sadly. He says hes going to try anyway. I know they are basically being forced to parole people that are eligible because of overcrowding but at the end of the day they will still do what they want.. even though this is definitely the best place for him. Sometimes I think they want them to go back. 🤷🏻*♀️😕

The interstate compact deals with former prisoners, not current ones. In most systems**, people on work release, furlough, half way house, even home confinement are still prison inmates. After parole/probation they are no longer "in custody". Some prison systems will transfer inmates to other States, but more often than not the transfer is involuntary, to save money rather than to grant a request.

**Each prison, parole & probation system is governed by its own set of laws, State, federal, whatever.

Okay my husband is in doc colorado. I am now living in illinois for work.
1. I now am an illinois resident...
2. I have worked her for over 90 days
3. I do have a permanent residance here, however it is a month to month because of the fact that i am worried my husband will get denied interstate compact.


Is it possible cook county can deny a manditory compact transfer for my husband? If he litteraly will have no where to go in colorado. We had only been in Colorado for a month when he was arrest we where never even residents there. And if Illinois does reject him, will colorafo allow him to parole to a homeless shelter because that what he will have to do. Because he has on one in colorado. I honestly am not planning on going back to colorado.

Hi my husband is in the process of a transfer he is on probation and his paperwork has been sent to Arizona where we are trying to move. my mother in law lives there and she had her home visit 2 weeks ago and at the visit the officer told her she was going to approve it but it would be a few weeks how much longer do you believe we will have to wait for an answer? also when you get approved how quickly are you able to move? Any answers would be great we were told contacting the interstate compact office is frowned upon.

This is a very easy question The offender must be clear of this type of supervision before applying for Interstate Compact Transfer

They are no longer in prison custody when on parole or probation, but they are still prisoners when on work release or pre-probation/parole.

My LO qualifies under a mandatory transfer, as he was/is a resident of the state prior to being encarcerated. Does he need an actual address for the paperwork? We were thinking of renting out a weekly motel/hotel until we could figure out where he could live, as we dont know what the exact stipulations of his probation will be. It would be from FL to MN

One of the criteria for mandatory transfer is a "valid plan of supervision." Rule 3.101

Further down that same page, "plan of supervision" is defined:

Quote:
Plan of Supervision – means the terms under which an offender will be supervised, including proposed residence, proposed employment or viable means of support and the terms and conditions of supervision.

Everyone that I've known or heard of applying for IC had to submit a Home Plan. Doesn't mean it can't happen, just that I've never known anyone to not have a home plan for IC.
