Default Intro--Tifla from Germany

Hello everybody! My username is Tifla and I am from Baden Württemberg, Germany. First of all I have to say sorry for the grammar mistakes I will probably make. I am not a native English speaker, but I hope everybody is going to understand me. If not, please feel free to ask me everything you want to know.

I came across this page while I was looking for information about laws and motions in Florida. A pen pal of mine, well, I should better call him a friend, is an inmate of a Correctional Institution in Florida. US-law is very different compared to the German one and sometimes it is hard for me to understand. I know the German law very well, but it is not easy to read juridical texts in a foreign language.
There are days when I really feel helpless, because I am so far away and I can’t really do very much to help him. There is no family and there are no friends at his side at the moment.
I really hope that I will find a few nice people to talk to on this side and I really hope that everybody is going to understand my English.

Welcome to Prison Talk Tifla. Your use of English is very clear. Our laws, and especially the judicial process, are designed to be confusing in any language. I'm sure that your friend greatly appreciates your support and will have a much easier time because of it.

Be sure to check the FL prison forums to meet others who have loved ones locked up there.

Hi Tifla, I am living in Ireland but originally from Illinois. I have only been on this site a few months and it is a godsend. I am still trying to figure out the laws and the prison systems. Sometimes I feel that my love has to explain everything to me like he would a small child, it can get confusing at times. Good luck.
