You go to bop.gov to print out the visiting form and fill it out - and yes, I believe you do need to know them before they were incarcerated but there has to be an exception to this rule because couples that MWI can visit, right?

You do have to have known the inmate prior to incarceration. Exceptions can be made if the inmate doesn't have other visitors and you can show that you would be a positive influence on the inmate's rehabilitation. If your inmate wants there to be an exception, he will need to request one. The main thing is to be honest on the visiting application because lying can end you up in trouble - and banned from visiting. As for MWI, I don't know how it works for couples to be married while in federal prison - doesn't the outside person have
to be approved for visiting in order to get married???? Anyone know??
