Default Getting Married in a Nevada Prison

I am getting married to my fiance on October 10th in High Desert State Prison in Nevada and just wondered does anyone know if you need one or two witnesses. I'm from the UK and I don't really know anyone over there so don't know who to ask if we need 2. Any advice would really help

This isn't solid advice because I was married in a CA facility, but because of a lockdown our guests weren't able to come. Our witness (only needed one) was the marriage coordinator. Is there anything about it in your paperwork from the facility?

And congrats! So excited for you.

Thank you I've read the paperwork and it wasn't very clear but after reading what you've said it makes sense

High Desert State is in Susanville, border with Reno, Nevada? I believe this is on the California side. I believe you need one witness. Your fiancé can bring a buddy from the back, and serve as witness. Your fiancé would have to jot his name down on the packet, so officials would know he will be brought out at the time of your ceremony. Blessings to you and your fiancé 🙏

Congratulations .

Congratulations!!! I hope the info provided so far has been helpful! I believe anyone can serve as a witness, as was noted above. In a pinch, another inmate could stand up for you.

I would go over the packet with a fine tooth comb to make sure one witness is sufficient (it should be, marriages on the outside in Nevada only require one witness) and if you are still unsure, ask the chaplain or your fiance's counselor.

We got married in Washington, in a prison. We had a problem with a witness being unavailable at short notice. So we had an inmate as a witness. My husband's CUS said he would be a witness, if we could not find anyone else, but he was a very nice CUS. Not all are like that.

Default NEVADA Marriage Q&A

Hello everyone!! I wanted to know if any of you are currently going through the marriage process in HDSP Nevada. The chaplain informed me that they no longer officiate weddings and that I need to find someone from the outside to marry us. Do any of you know of anyone who can help? Any chapels I can call. I am not from Nevada so any help will be appreciated! Thank you!!!
