The process is different at many of the facilities, so the best thing to do would be to contact the chaplain at the facility.

Hi, my name is Tusonah and my life partner is serving his time in Stateville Prison. I just received a marriage package from him. The papers I got are pink in color and he has already filled in his information. It states that, I have to pay $40 for the marriage license, he has to pay $150 for the process, then I have to pay an additional $90 for the Chaplin. I don't understand, if they were not allowed to get married, why did I get this marriage package in the mail??

Smile Hi!!!

Yes, this is what I was saying because, my long-time partner just mailed me a marriage package and all of his information is already filled-out. I just want to know about the different procedures and are we allowed some time together after the wedding?? I'm glad to her someone else has actually gotten married.

Default Marrying Someone In Prison

What do you have to do to get married? WHat happens? How does it work? What happens to an inmate if you marry them while in jail?

They are allowed to marry in Stateville. I am an Ordained Minister and I called to the prison myself cos, I was going to perform a ceremony... Everything is a go....

Default Getting Married in Hillsboro Illinois

I've gone through the Illinois specific thread a few times but it seems like no one has been on there in quite a while and I'm hoping to get whatever answers I can as fast as I can. My fiancee and I want to get married while he's in Graham Correctional Center in Hillsboro. He's put in requests to talk to the chaplin but they only told him that Graham doesn't have a chaplin. Or at least one that would marry us. He has recently signed over power of attorney to me because of some medical reasons, and we hoped that we could just get a technical marriage done. However, I'm not sure if Illinois allows marriage by proxy. The only other thing I can think of is if a minister were to come from an outside church to perform the counciling and service for us at the prison. Does anyone have any experience with doing this, and if you do could you recommend a minister near Hillsboro? I'm really really unfamiliar with that area so I'm clueless. And I'm also worried that a minister willing to do this may be hard to come by. Any advice?

last time I studied this area, marriage by proxy was not allowed. a brief review of the Marriage Act shows that a proxy provision is still not in the statute. Sorry.

When did that start? Because I married my husband at Menard in '99 .. I'm not saying its not true, but I never knew that they could refuse anyone a marriage license.

Anyone please help, how long does it take for him to get marriage packet cause he requested it over a month ago so he just sent another request. Think they might be ignoring him so he will go away. Lawrence cc sucks

I wrote the Warden and Chaplin a letter asking for permission and what it would mean to us and why it would help him when he came home. Waiting for a response. Will update as things progress.

Thanks Angela! The Chaplin is not a very nice guy but I just kept saying sorry I got taking up his time and that my fiance had requested the packet and had not got it yet. Asked if it took a while he said no just 1 or 2 days and wow he got it next day. They really try to make you give up but don't! Anyway now no one will help us figure out what some of this info they want is so we will figure it out and I will update again.

Oddly enough, prisons are reluctant to allow batterers to marry their victims while they are still serving time on the DV charges.

It was NEVER like that. That's not even the reason why he's in there. He called today and we decided to wait and do it right. He said that after 7 years whats a while longer. Also said there is a guy in there that got the no contact order lifted or modified so at least we know it is possible to get it done.

It doesn't really matter what you think it's like. The NCO is part of his parole and has to be followed. If you don't... He will go back to prison. Also, guys in there LIE...or the guy who got his modified did everything he was supposed... And so did his wife/girlfriend. You need to come to terms with the fact that unless both of y'all go through DV classes and counseling, you are not going to get anything done with that order. So, instead of being worried about getting married... Put in the work that needs to be done if you want that to happen...
