Default Marrying in halfway house/on parole- Parole Transfer

My son's father was denied transferring to the state we are in.
We are not legally married- except maybe by common law.
I have been told by many that if we were married they might have allowed the transfer, but I have also heard that getting married while in prison raises red flags to the Parole board.
Can anyone give any information about marrying while he is in the halfway house or on parole- how and if its allowed.
AND if that would allow him to come and be with his family. I've read in here that its harder to transfer after your are out of the half way house- and hear others say they have.

Thank you.

There is NO parole in the Federal system, there is Supervised Release which is part of the sentence. He is eligible for 15% Good Time Credit and there is no parole board that looks at anything to determine eligibility.

Inmates can get married while in prison with permission from the warden. Do remember that the Half Way House is not the beginning of freedom but the very end of the incarceration period, he is still under the jurisdiction of the BOP.

He would not need permission from his Probation Officer to get married but needs to start out on the right foot and do his best to have him/her as an ally and not think of them as the "enemy".

If you're planning to get married, the sooner the better. If if you are refused during his incarceration, this will be in the documentation so it will not look unusual to his PO if he should suddenly get married later.
