Default What documents does Michigan provide parolees with when they exit prison?

I'm hoping my boyfriend will be given his birth certificate when he gets out soon so that we can get married. Does anyone know if this will be the case, or do we need to request it from the government early?

Hi Bleu, anytime My Mr has been released all he has is his prison ID. We ordered his birth certificate after he was home. Not sure if that's true for Michigan, but your loved one can ask his Counselor if his birth certificate will be ordered by the facility prior to his release. If the answer is no, then you could go ahead and order it online for him.

Michigan has a new initiative in place that will provide an ID (driver license or state ID) to all paroled individuals now. Depending on what facility the person is at an paroling from, it's possible your boyfriend may have his birth certificate and social security card in hand when he gets out. But for sure, he'll have an ID other than his prison ID.

When you get near your earliest release date, or near your parole hearing, you're automatically put on a list to request your birth certificate, your social security card and a state ID. I think it's maybe 6 months beforehand. You don't HAVE to get these items, but at least you're asked if you want them. Michigan goes back and forth on whether they charge you or not, depending on funding. At one time it was $35 for the birth certificate, then they got funding and it was free. If he's close to getting out, he can ask to get these items.
