I was wondering do they hold visitation on holidays...like thanksgiving....which is during the week or only on holidays that fall on the weekend? My guy said something about it at our last visit, but so much as changed since the last time he was there. I can't remember since he was so far away last year. Thanks,
Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day and I believe July 4th, but don't hold me to July 4th...there is one other day though, I am just not sure which one exactly. But, I know you can visit on turkey day and xmas day.
Yes, alot of changes, but those are still the same....for now.
Thanks ladies, that's what I thought but wasn't sure if it had changed since he was in last time. It's still up in the air about what I'm doing for Thanksgiving but I will get to see him on Christmas. So Thanks again.
thanksgiving was on a thursday and i went to see my husband the visit does not have to fall on a weekend of when normal visitation takes place but it has to be a major holiday recognized by the institution
In the case of Death Row, it's one visit every 7 days. At FSP, it's an either or situation. At UCI, the guys have to select a day and you are stuck with that.
We ran into a snag at Thanksgiving where a friend had called for a Special Visit on Sunday. I was there Thursday and Saturday. Fortunately, the guards told me before I left that there was a problem with the other person's paperwork and the extra visit was denied so I could call and let them know.
There are guys at FSP who can have visits both Saturday and Sunday. Like Butch, they are short timers. That's not a world I know anything about. Count your blessings!
hey does anyone know if they still have visit on 4th of july and if so since its on a monday this year will we be able to go on saturday sunday and monday? I went to see him on christmas when he was closer but i dont remember if u can go all 3 days that week...thanks!
good news ladies, they recently added several holidays. july 4, memorial day, labor day, martin luther king day. if it fall on a sat then you can visit on fri. if it falls on a sun. then you can visit mon. also thanksgiving is thur and fri. and of course the regular days are sat and sun. it's great for me because i work weekends and could hardly ever see him. now i get to see him almost every other month.
what lies behind us and what lies before us
is nothing compared to what lies within us
Regular visiting is permitted on the following holidays:
New Year's Day
Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. (third Monday in January)
Veteran's Day (November 11th)
Friday after Thanksgiving; and
If any of the holidays listed above falls on Saturday, the preceding Friday will be observed as a holiday. If any of these holidays fall on Sunday, then the following Monday will be observed as the holiday.
If he is in Mental Health then you may want to check. At my honey's location if they are in Mental Health they have to be in a "special program" to have holiday visits. That stinks. DOC website states holiday visits can be had(and doesn't limit to normal or mental health)
