Talking TPM changed to May 2019! What is next? Or what are the next steps?

My boyfriends TPM was May 2020. All 12 of his PIC points were applied per his counselor and his TPM changed to May 2019. It has been 4 years and I am ecstatic. I can't believe he is finally coming home soon. What is next? Or what are the next steps? Does the parole officer have to verify his address before he can be released? Why would they deny an address? Also when will we know the final date of his release? As of now we just know it's May.

Congrats!!

Yes, the parole office will need to come do a home visit - will make sure the home fits all of his release requirements. Do not lie, do not try to hide things from the home visit. Get everything in writing, including if they say the home is suitable.

He should find out his exact release date 1 - 2 weeks before he's released. Then it's up to him to notify you. The prison will not notify you directly.

Reasons they would deny an address: 1) Items are present that he's not allowed to be around (alcohol, drugs, computers, firearms... the PO will know what he is and is not allowed to have in the household). 2) If he's got residency restrictions like "can't live closer than 2,000 feet from a school" and the home is within that boundary. 3) If people are present or likely to be present who have a no contact order or who are a restricted category for him (such as children or a domestic violence victim).

Congratulations!! Please come back and update us with what happened - we get so few pieces of happy news, and we all want to sing with joy when we hear some.

Thank you. I have contacted the parole office and his parole officer said she was coming by on Sunday but never did. I'm going to try calling her tomorrow.
Ok there should be no issues but what do you mean by computers? We have one and I have a laptop as well? Why would that be an issue? I will post an update as soon as I get one and when he get released. Thanks

Some people are not allowed computers or internet access as part of their parole/release supervision requirements. This is a common ban for sex offenders, but other computer related crimes (fraud, identity theft etc.) where computers played a major role in the commission of the crime can also have this ban attached. It's just something to be aware of. "No alcohol" is also a pretty common one, whether the crime had anything to do with alcohol or not.

If your loved one has no computer ban restriction then having a computer in the home is not an issue. Any special restrictions should be recorded in the judge's sentencing order filed with the clerk of court. Here is a link to the usual conditions of supervision in GA.https://dcs.georgia.gov/standard-conditions-supervision There are a few other conditions listed here. https://dcs.georgia.gov/special-cond...-supervision-0
Basically, they want him to get a job, stay sober, follow the rules & don't mess up. They'll explain all of it to him when he meets with his PO upon release.

Ok got it. The parole officer was supposed to come over this passed Sunday to verify the address. She never came and hasn't answered any calls since. I've only left her one voicemail because I don't want to annoy her. Should I keep trying to contact her or wait for her to call me? Will there be issues if the verification of address delays? It's still early April so im not that worried. His TPM finally updated online as well on the tpm page. It was taking a while for that to update but its finally on there. Is there anyone else i can call about his address verification/parole process updates beside his parole officer? Thanks.

Unfortunately, no, just his parole officer. Sometimes they can end up in court, eating up time. I'd give it a week, then call again - in case you slipped her mind, and recognizing that they usually have a large caseload.

The parole officer called. She just needed verbal permission for him to live at the address and said she did not have to come out in this case. She said when he was out she would know if she would be coming by monthly or every 3 months. She submitted the address approval and that was that. Now we are just waiting on a release date.

I am so excited and anxious now. Does it take a month or more to be released after everything is approved? His counselor told him that we should know the date towards the end of April but I'm not sure if that's right because I thought the final review is on the TPM month

They should give him his release date a couple of weeks in advance of his release. So if he's releasing, say, May 5th, they'd have to tell him his release date in April. So what you were told sounds about right to me.

So close!! Everyone gets anxious about release. Just remember to breathe. I won't be worse than the front end was, I promise!

Thank you! I've been trying to keep my mind off of it. As of now there is still no update. I do have a question though. My boyfriends address has already been approved by his po which is my mothers address. I have been staying there because i was cosigner on the house and i have been trying to get out of debt and save up so that we can find something else. Also my name finally got removed from the mortgage last month, so O am able to apply elsewhere. My moms partner has a house that he owns and is going to rent it. It would be perfect for us since its close to everywhere we have to go and the price is right. Is it possible for my bf to request a change of address soon after my boyfriend is released? I am still at my mothers house and wouldn't be able to rent the other house until June/July. So we can't update the address now because its not certain yet.

If he is going to change addresses, check it out with his PO. They will tell him what he can do & how to do it. If he's being released in May & the new place won't be ready til after his release, his PO is the one who will need to ok the new address. Glad you have found a place to stay. That's one of the hardest things to do. Good luck!

Hey does anyone know about how long until a release date is given? Just to summarize,

April 3rd - counselor told my bf that he would be released in May.
April 8th- his tpm changed from May 2020 to May 2019.
April 11th- his PO called and approved his address.

It will be a month since I talked to his PO this weekend. The counselor told my bf that he should hear something the last week of April or first week of May. I have called the parole board a few days ago and they told me that he was being reviewed but that's all. I know we're only a few days into May but I would really like to know an average timeframe if anyone knows. Thanks

Congrats! Wow, that doesn't leave much time to get ready! Homecomings are joyous, but can also be stressful.

(ProTip: make sure you bring stuff in the car in case he gets car sick)

I've never heard of any prison doing that before. Then again, I don't know the Georgia system very well, so maybe it's a GA thing.

Yes that's a sign they're getting out early. They're putting together their parole plan I believe when they start doing that. My bf did that about 2-3 months ago.
