Default Once a person is released from prison...

My husband is in prison in Georgia and he said that once he gets out he would have to stay in Georgia for at least 6 more months before he can come back home which is in Chicago. Is this true and if so, why is that? Why couldn't he just come back to the city that he's from? Can anyone help me w/this? Thanks.

That is absolutely NOT TRUE!!!! The process w/ that is getting in contact with the interstate compact department w/ the Parole Board when its time for him to get paroled or earlier just to inquire. They will in turn get in touch w/ Illinois to see if they (Il.) will except him as a parolee. If they will, then its done. HTH. Let me know if you need me.

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes, his paperwork is in GA. I think I will wait until he gets out to ask for it, because I would hate to cause anything to slow down the process of him getting out.

Thanks again,

LeLe

all of the responses have been correct but he may have to wait simply because of paperwork. i was told that it takes a minimum of 3 months for the paperwork to be processed for interstate compact, but then again the probation officer that my husband had was a HORRIBLE LITTLE MAN so he may have been full of it. even so, i know that when a person is on probation they can be given passes to visit other states for certain amounts of time while the paperwork is going through so your husband might be able to use those, although i'm not sure if that counts for parole or just for probation. good luck!

If you want to start the process while he is in it doesn't slow down the process. The only thing you would be concerned with is if the other state will except him or not. If so you would have to stay on top of the game as you would as if he was parolling in Ga. HTH. Because if you wait lele16.......I will PM you on that.

No,the paerwork won't slow down the process if he applies 120 days prior to his release.He can summit an I60 to the ipo there and request that he wants to transfer his parole to where you are ,if they don't call him out to do so,then have him write the compact office and let them know he wants to apply and ask that he be called out to apply for compact, you could also call the parole in his state and ask that they fax his unit to be called out to apply,but remember ,120 days prior to release.I would start alittle before that to get the ball rolling.My husband and I are going through compact now,we went through it last year 120 days prior to his projected release date and he was approved to come home to Chicago but,Texas gave him a dms so,now his time will be all up in March.There's a site on here by Searcher who does the compact and it's really informative,where I learned alot on compact,the main thing is once he applies for compact is that you keep up on the paper trail ,it's a process but ,the first time it only took us from start to finish a little over 60 days.We had to re apply because they only keep the paper work for 6 months.If you need any help pm me and I will let you know what I can.

Well since shaunsgrl needs the info too, I'll go ahead & post it. I was gonna tell you that if you wait, the process will take longer. At one time there was/maybe still is, an application fee when he applies, among other things. Not only that, but there would be no guarantee the receiving state would except him. I was informed that if its done at least 3-4mths BEFORE his TPM rolls around, they can get the balling rolling. HTH.

i know the fee for probation transfer was $25 and the receiving state HAS to accept the transfer under two conditions: 1) the person was a resident of that state before the incarceration and 2)the person has immediate family in the state. that's why my husband and i moved up our marriage and haven't had a full-blown wedding yet because i was told by the interstate compact that he would be transferred if i was his wife, not just a fiancee'. pretty much if you don't meet one or both of those conditions, though you're screwed and the receiving state won't accept the person period. however, if you've got a decent parole or probation officer, they can give you passes to visit other states until the paperwork is finalized.

Hi,

If all that you're saying is true, he should be alright to transfer. He was definitely a resident of Illinois before incarceration and he definitely has immediate family here. Also the fee is reasonable. Thank you so much for your help and I wish you the best.

One of the important factors I forgot was he may HAVE to go an immediate family member in order to be considered. Just be sure to stay on the other states trail so they arent bullsh**ing around with his case. That was another downside to waiting until he gets out, I was informed that some offices/ers want the parolee to be on parole for at least 6mths or longer before even applying to the transfer. Then there was the issue of the officer submitting the application whenever they feel like it. I have heard it all.HTH.

OMG, shaunsgrl, I have seen where individuals are banned from an entire judicial circuit. For example, Lookout Mountain judicial circuit includes Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, & Walker Counties. So if one is banned from the judicial circuit, they are banned from all those counties. It happens all the time. Especially in the more rural area. HTH.

ive heard ofd a lot of people getting banished from counties that have drug charges, sometimes people will request to be banished b/c they think it makes the DA back off of them or easier to parole; who knows if thats actually true!

Default My husband is in Gwinnett County

Hello,

My husband served over two years in the Rogers State Prison and was recently transferred to Gwinnett County in Lawrenceville, GA. He's eligible for parole in November 2008. I called his counselor earlier this week and was told that they haven't received his paperwork for parole yet. I'm really hoping that they receive it soon, because my husband would also need to file an Interstate Compact so that he could be sent back home to Chicago upon release.

Now by him being transfer from Rogers to Gwinnett - that is good news right? Does this mean that there's a great possibility of him being released sooner? Could someone please get back to me ASAP.

Thank you,

Lele
