Unless it is required by the BOP, neither of the states involved require blood tests for legal marriage.

Welcome to Prison Talk. Weddings while in a US federal prison usually depend on two things, the warden's policy and the state/local rules for issuing marriage licenses. Have him ask his prison counselor or the Chaplain about getting married at Sheridan.

Here's a link to the 20 page Sheridan prison forum.

Welcome to Prison Talk. He is in a much better position to find out the status of your wedding application. He should send a cop out to his unit team case manager, and/or the prison Chaplain to learn where the application currently is in the approval process. If he is convinced that it is still active, and it will be decided prior to when they actually schedule weddings, then it should be OK.

If he finds out it was denied, or it is being ignored, he can file an inmate grievance and you could write a letter to the warden.

Default Marriages & FCI Elkton

My fiancee just arrived at FCI Elkton. We are hoping to get married as soon as possible. He was told there's never been any marriages of inmates there. That particular county requires both parties be present when applying for marriage license. There's no way he can appear so does this mean we won't be able to get married?

No. The prison must approve the marriage and the officiant who will be officiating the ceremony for you. The two federal prisons where I officiate weddings only have them once a year. The inmate needs to put in a request to marry to his counselor or unit manager. The bride to be must also submit a letter of intent to marry to the counselor or unit manager. Then the warden has final approval on whether or not the wedding will happen.

I think your LO has to organize it from inside.

Depends on the laws of the state/county in which you apply. In Maryland no photo I'd is required. Just SS # and you. Other require notarized forms. Call or check the website for the County clerks office in the state/county in which his facility is located.

Sometimes it's possible to outmaneuver a nasty counselor. Has he talked to the Chaplain? If the warden is sometimes available for open house in the chow hall, ask for a marriage package from them.

He would need to speak to his counselor and the chaplain and arrange to get a marriage packet. Both of you would need to complete and then it would go to the warden for approval.
You would need to get his ID to apply for a marriage licence at the courthouse.
I sure that others who have been through the process will have more information.

Good luck to you both.

Hello friends! My boyfriend is in FCI Pollock, LA. I'm Brazilian and we're in love. We plan a wedding on the beach when he leaves, but at the moment we want to get married in jail so I can visit him. His family will host me, so I'll have where to live until he leaves. What I need is information on how to proceed to make it happen. I appreciate any and all information. Thank you!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding.

Have him find out the requirements at Pollock from his counselor or the prison Chaplain. They can be different at many US federal prisons because the details are set by the wardens at each one.

What I want to know is, I'm not an American citizen and I do not live in the USA. Can our marriage be allowed? He's in Federal Prison.
