Of course he can. If you get married while he's in jail he will have to have that added to his property list I think is the way my Hubby told me.

Hi, my husband is at Victorville FCI. I am about 7 hours away. He was in county for about a year before we was transfered, and we could only talk behind a glass and through a telephone. I am waiting to be able to visit, but I'm scard of doing the wrong thing, or wearing the wrong thing and being asked to leave, or having his visits taken away. I haven't been able to touch him for over a year, and what if we hug for too long or something....
I been reading other people's stories, and I'm just afriad of doing the wrong thing on accident since it will be my first time. We decided that the first visit will be alone until I see how it is and then take the kids another time.
Has anyone been to Voctorville FCI? Can people give me some advise....
Thanks!

Hi Allenraysgirl,
My son is being sent to Coleman (medium). I'm glad that your boyfriend is close to you. It makes a big difference to both of you to be able to visit often. For me, Coleman is close to home. Was your boyfriend in medium? If he was, even if he wasn't, could tell me as much as you can about Coleman? I would so much appreciate it.

Lostlamb,
My heart goes out to you and your child. The road ahead will certainly be a rough and bumpy one---but hopefully you will gain the strength to muster through. My best advice is to take one day at a time. My situation involves my brother, so I have not experienced first hand the challenges which face you. But to solve any problem, you must break it into smaller bits that are managable. Don't try to devise a plan that will get you through 10 or 20 years today---because time has a way of working out some of the things by itself. But you must make a plan and that plan will most likely necessitate asking someone somewhere for help. Family--are there other family members who you could rely on to assist you with care of the child while you find work for the first time--which with today's economy will not be an easy task in and of itself but will be a necessary one. Church and community--do you have a church and/or community which you could turn to for help finding a job, getting counseling, helping you answer the most difficult questions? Then spirituality--while I am not a religious person, I do have spirituality which gets me through the ordeal with my brother. Faith is essential to survival. I wish you the best and will be thinking of you.

Hi, everyone! My hubby is at FCI Ashland, KY, which is low. Will be there, hopefully, no longer than January of 2008. About 250 miles from home in Tennessee. Is anyone keeping a map with push pins in it? I'm trying to figure out where everyone is, home and prison. We need one of those electronic ones like the one on the BOP site! ~ WJ

lostlamb, I read a great post written by a gal with a little boy the same age as your little girl. She said she just didn't know what to say to her son. Then one day she sat him down at the kitchen table and said, "Daddy has done a bad thing and is going to be in time out for a long time." Her son said, "Can I go see him?" She said, "Yes." And, for her son that was the end of it. He very much enjoyed his visits with his daddy and his daddy was very glad to see him, too. Hope something like her simple explanation fills the sadness your little girl must be feeling. Too, hope you've found some financial help. Social services should be able to offer some temporary funds. Please don't be ashamed to ask because of your circumstances. Think first of your child. If someone looks down their nose at you just realize they have a bigger problem than you or your child has. Just be who you are, a loving mother and devoted wife. Be blessed. ~ WJ PS You might want to try your state forum just below this one. Someone there may be in your area and have some specific ideas for you. You're in my prayers.

VictorVilleGirl, I haven't been there. But I know my hubby told me they are drilled in the do's and don'ts before they come through that door. You can pick up some clues from watching the couples around you. Each facility probably has its own set of rules. If you have to wait very long before you go in you may be able to strike up a conversation with another gal who knows the routine. Have a great visit, wear conservative clothes, bring a clear plastic bag of change (our vending machines ask for exact change and some won't accept bills), your photo ID and vehicle plate number,....and ENJOY that first hug and the one you get when you leave. :-) ~ WJ
PS You might want to check out your state forum, too, after this forum.

Mine is at FMC Butner currently. ( a medical facility) I have only went for one 2 day visit, since I live 12 hours away. The staff was very friendly, the process of checking in to see him was pretty painless and visitation, though crowded especially on Sunday, was fine. My bf says the staff so far have been very professional and nice ( knock on wood!). Of course, its a medical facility, so I have no idea about the other two just down the road from it. And he finds it depressing to be ill and also be around people in very sad situations ( cancer and other serious or terminal illnesses) but there's nothing to be done about that Hopefully he will be able to be moved closer to home within the next year or so, which will be great. I can't afford to visit him up there. My nephew drove me up there and the cost of gas and hotels rooms and food for just a couple visits was something I could only do about once a year!

My wife is in Alderson fpc in WV, its about 6 hours for me to visit, but there isn't anyother place closer for her to go. We are from ohio the Youngstown area. It is pretty hard to go and see her but so far i have made it every weekend, but its only been 2 months, we have a lot to go. But the visits there are very nice nobody bothers you at all its like there not even watching you at all. And the c\os are pretty nice.

Michael

Thumbs up

Mine is at Nellis FPC, which is a country club as prisons go and I live here in

Las Vegas so visiting is no problem. However, he was first sent to Lompoc because the judge recommended him for boot camp. "They" decided he wasn't eligible, but he had been promised Nellis if it didn't work out. Needless to say, "They" then decided that he wasn't eligible for minimum security
after all. He was in a panic, but I wrote to my Congresswoman, Shelley
Berkley (wonderful lady), and she got right on it. Don't ever expect them to admit they're wrong, they defended their actions to her- but within a month,
his transfer came mysteriousy through. Never forget the BOP is a bureaucracy which is fat and hapy and they don't want their bosses breating down their necks!
