Talking Parole Home Visit to Approve Housing

I just wanted to say a HUGE thank you to all of you. I have been reading many of your blogs and thanks to your experiences I feel better about mine.
My husbands Parole officer is coming Friday for a home visit to approve his housing. He comes home in 3 and 1/2 months.

Any advice for me during this exciting time is welcome!

Thanks Again!

Yee Haw!!! I love a Homecoming First, don't worry about the "cleanliness" of your home...the PO don't care as long as there is no drugs, alcohol, weapons, viscious animals etc. As for your fella's homecoming so soon....clean like a banchee!!!! I cleaned closets, drawers, under/behind all appliances, and windows (and more!), if for no other reason than nervous energy One of the most important things to remember: Breathe!!! Congratulations

It was great. The officer was polite and went out of his way to make me feel comfortable. We sat at the counter and went over the conditions of release. I answered easy questions- no drugs- no alcohol - no children (unsupervised)...make sure he pays his fines and goes to required meetings and look for a job and all is well. I was concerned about the distance between my home and the elementary school down the street (it was my only concern really)...the officer called me within an hour to let me know our home met the criteria and all was well. He has also been helpful with questions I have had since our meeting. I feel blessed, I know they are not all that good/normal/understanding/professional.

So they don't go through every inch of the house checking stuff? Did they question your income or have to tell the landlord he'd be staying there?

Both times My Mr paroled, the PO did a "walk-through" but did not check in closets/drawers etc. when he did the Home Inspection. Keep in mind that they CAN if they want and WILL if they want. The first PO visit after My Mr was home (this time) the PO did walk into the kitchen and look in the garbage.....he didn't move anything around, just looked I was not asked about my income either time. I am the landlord, I'm purchasing the house

He walked in the livingroom, didn't even go upstairs. He never asked about my income, only if him coming home to me would be a burdon (really....lol). He did speak directly to my landlord and made sure she understood his charges.
