Question Has anyone ever got married in Monroe County PA?

My fiancee and I are trying to get married while he is in Monroe County PA. They are saying that they dont do marriages there but in the DOC of PA it says under DC-ADM 821 inmates are able to get married in jail. I would like to know if anyone has gotten married to someone in there and if yes who did you talk to and what has to be done for us to finally get married? Thanks.

I got married at Houtzdale. It took a couple mos because his counselor is a slacker. I went to the court for my half of the marriage license & his half was done via video conference. I found Rev. Debbie on here, we set a date, and now I'm his Mrs.!

Default Marriage at sci pittsburgh

I was wondering if anyoen had information about getting married at sci pittsburgh. My boyfriend was told by his counselor they no longer perform marriages at sci pittsburgh due to the fact there's mostly PV's there now. That it's been that way for the last year and a half anyone know if this is accurate? Thanks

Default Denied to be married by sci somersets chaplain

Me n my man are trying to get married at sci somerset unfortunately the chaplain said no one in somerset county will marry us. We're lookin for someone right outside of Somerset county. Does anyone know of someone who would travel to the prison to marry us and I'm on a budget so can't be too expensive. Thank you ❤

My cousin got married in Attica prison. He and a few other inmates were married in the same day. I had to wait outside because they only allowed two others in during the service but afterwards we could take pictures with him. It took about three months for the whole process.

Question Wanting to get married at SCI Frackville

Hi all,

My fiance and I are looking to get married and he's in Frackville. I've checked out a couple of vendors who can do it but are a bit pricey. Can anyone recommend or refer me to someone that they have used or know of so I can do a little comparison shopping?

Thank you!
