Default Per MDOC Administraton - do not send visiting applications to RG&C....

I asked for clarification and this is the response:

Hello Ms. Smith,

In response to the question you raised with ........;
visiting applications must be reviewed and approved or denied by
administrative staff at the facility where the visits will be taking
place.

Prisoners who are being processed at the Reception and Guidance Center
(RG&C) are not permitted visits. No visiting applications are processed
by the facility. Administrative staff at the RG&C may not make these
decisions for another facility.

Visiting application can be processed by the facility where the visits
will take place once the prisoner has completed the reception process
and is transferred.

My guy was just at RG&C in May, I sent the visiting app. directly to Egeler and waited about two weeks for it to be approved. Inmates can ONLY have visits if they have a detail(job). I wouldn't be surprised if they've changed the rules that quick.

They have to make sure the birth certificate has all the correct information on it (the father has to be listed) before they will approve the visits.. thats SOP for the MDOC and I believe always has been!

Did this just change? I sent my app's to Egelr too, w/the copies of the kids birth certificates and they were all processed and approved THERE! Then he was moved to Macomb on Friday and that very Sunday we visited. So is it that they've changed this or the person giving the above info doesn't know what they are talking about? The part about Egeler not being able to make decisions for other facilities is crap IMO. SHouldn't matter what facility it was processed thru, it goes across the board! Just wondering if things have changed.

I am sitting on visitors apps until my hubby gets placed. Reception said to wait to send because each facility is different. I think Michigan should be Michigan all the way, not from facility to facility.

Just a question but is your hubby the biological father to your son? IF yes, then they have to make sure that ALL info is correct and IF no, then they are probably trying to decide whether or not to approve hubby of the visit with this minor child. My daughter is now 13 yrs old and I still can't get her in to see her biological father(my hubby). I have put in apps after apps and they still deny her 1-2 times and 1 time they approved her without letting me know so I didn't know they accepted her for the visits. 1 time they( the counselor) said she was dead...lol..how's that one as a "thank you for applying" but .... By the way, when you send in applications for visiting, they go directly to the prison they are housed at and it will go to their counselor for decision making of a yah or nah answer so once you get it in, give it at least 2 weeks and then call his couselor at the facitilty that he is housed. Stay on them about the visiting app or they will not look at it right away.

We sent our applications to Jackson/Eagler however we were told they would be placed in the prisoner's file (counselor) until he was moved to a permanent location. He was moved to Kinross @ 37 days. We called up there and sent new applications in case... however in the interium (between Monday-Friday) we were all approved and visited on the 5th day.

It has always been my understanding that there are no visitors at Eagler unless the person is housed there... i.e. not in quarantine...

As always, L.

Ok that confuses me totally. I sent in my application along with my DH (step dad) and his minor siblings...8.10.14. Along with the applications I sent in their birth certificates and my marriage license. So even if the minor doesn't happen to have their biological fathers name on the certificate I would think that the marriage license would be good enough. His siblings were approved but my dh and I were denied because they were old applications. So I guess I shouldn't be confused if they approved the minor's but not the adults LOL. How were the kids gonna get there <shrug>

Reminder check your applications and be sure that they are current.

BTW we didn't re submit applications because my son entered SAI and no visitors there.

Default No visits?

Wow, we did not know you could not visit @ Egeler. We have to wait until he is transferred?

Yep, there isn't any visiting while they are at RG & C. They will be there 30-45 days usually and then transferred to a regular facility where you can visit.

I have already went through the Egeler Center run around. They told me flat out that there was no visiting, nothing about filling out a form to go with him when he was transfered. He is now transfered (1 week now) and still has to send me the papers. I found a website that had a downloadable pdf file to fill out and send in myself, and I might just do that. I wish I had found this forum sooner, it might have saved me a headache or two! Now I am about to check out the information on getting married to my special guy!

My question is I am sending out the apps for my daughter and I to go see my fiance. I have her birth cert. and he is her father but the hospital wouldn't let me put him on the birth cert because he was working and had all the papers filled out for them but he signed them and it wasn't in front of them. So they wouldn't let me have his name on the birth cert. Does this mean that when I send in our daughters application it will more then likely be denied because his name isn't on the birth cert?????

If he's not on the birth certificate then you are going to need to get an affadavit of parentage.

You can find it here:

http://www.michigan.gov/documents/co...n_222547_7.pdf

If you can't click on it just copy it and paste it into your browser...fill it out and mail it to the facility he goes to after quarantine - I enclosed a self addressed stamped envelope with ours and they mailed the approved-stamped application back to us, once they approve it you will be approved at every facility he goes to.

If you can't see the whole link, go to http://www.michigan.gov/corrections and toward the bottom click the "questions" drop down, and select "how do I visit a prisoner" - then choose the "visiting application" and print it out!

I printed 2 copies and sent one to Egeler with a sase, just in case. I figured it couldn't hurt. If I get an approval soon after he's transferred it will be worth it.
