I'm really sorry to hear that. Wat a total let down knowing they are holding u guys back from marrying each other? I read from another thread about prisons in ur st8 that don't allow prison marriages. I can't say it's 4 sure cuz I never did n-e research or read up on it. I'm not sure wats going on or wat the rules r over there, but I'd call or ask around & c wat their deal is. They should @ least b able to clarify the info 4 u instead of em giving u ur hopes up than telling u something else. Good luck to u & I hope that u find ur way thru this confusion.

I have a fiance at wilcox as well. I was directed to go to Dekalb county probate court and get the inmate package for marriage which is no cost. Than you have to send fill your part and send it to him to fill his part at the prison and send it back to you than you tale it back to Dekalb county probate court and apply for license. Im still trying to find out if we need our own pastor to marry us or do they have approved ones already that we can with. If you have any information on this please share.
Thanks

Default what does atlanta check on to approve a marriage?

I'm afraid to write this because I'm scared of the reactions I will get my fiance as a prisoner at smith state prison and is a convicted sex offender. I just had to fight to be put back on his visitation list because I am the parent of a minor child. I ask that you keep an open heart and open mind to my question, because not all books are like to cover. I am wanting to know what the DOC in Atlanta check for when they go to approve a marriage. I'm wanting to know if I should prepare for another battle to be with a man that I love. I'm wondering if it was like the initial processed on the approved me for his visitation where they just do a background check and make sure that he's not married and that I'm not married or if there going to be going more into detail. see the present never even asked about my son even though I kept him no secret since he has written him and talked to him even saw him in county it wasnt until 4 months after he had been there it became a problem and it tok 5 but I get it straightened out so if anyone can help me and let me know what the processes in atlanta and let me know if I'm in for another battle I would really greatly appreciate it. thank you very much and god bless you.

Most places you should call and ask to speak with the chaplin and he will help u out. And tell you who to give the papers to for them to approve it and he will set the date. Just call and ask to speak with the chaplin. In Ga u sometimes send the papers to atlanta for approval from the head chaplin Woodrow Hudson. If u have any q's pm me and i will help the best i can! Marie
Marie how can I go about calling coastal state prison and asking for the chaplain there to see if the papers have been sent?

You can go to Decatur or habersham county....but Decatur your going to have to make about 4 trips....he has to request a marriage packet from the chaplain and go from there.

Post GEORGIA marriage Q&A thread

After searching, I found that there was no active GA marriage thread. My fiancee and I are in the midst of the process of being married at Calhoun State Prison...the chaplain says it will be in the next couple of weeks. I just wanted to start a new place for info for those seeking to get married in GA.

nicasm Here's how the process went for us:
I went to Dekalb County Probate Court to get the "Inmate Packet" for applying for a marriage license. The lady that I spoke with there was very nice and explained everything to me in detail. I see you're in MS so it would be a bit of a drive to come and receive the packet as they will not mail or fax it to you. I mailed the packet to my fiancee so that he could complete his portion. As long as you follow the instructions to the T, there shouldn't be any issues. Note: both the form and the letter have to be notorized.
My fiancee was able to get the chaplain to produce the letter (all explained in the packet) pretty quickly and filled out his portion. Once he mailed it back to me I took it back to Dekalb County to pay for ($65) and receive the marriage license. I then sent a copy of the license to the chaplain. The chaplain took it from there, mailing a copy of the license to the state and getting our date scheduled.
We were married yesterday on my husband's birthday along with 4 other couples. It was a great day!

Heres how the federal process went: We both wrote letters of intent to his case manager. Once they were approved we had to wait for a date. Once the date came the counselor called and told me where to get my license (76.50) and the minister they use there ($100). Told me all about the process and what rings to get. Then all we had to do after I filled out for the marriage license was to wait until our day!
