Default Interstate Compact From AZ?

My best friend is jail in AZ for a DUI sentence and will be gettting early release Oct 31 of this year. What I need to know is what is involved to get her released to Florida on Interstate compact. The people she hangs out with in AZ are the main reason she keeps getting into trouble and it would be best for everyone if she could get away from AZ.

I have a place for her to live and a job already lined up, what else does she need to do? I am unfamiliar with this whole process, but she has asked me to do some research to help her out. Does this need to be done by her from AZ or can I contact anyone here in FL and get the ball rolling?

Thanks for the help

She would need to contact her caseworker at thr prison and discuss this with him/her. In Ohio it was the caseworker that was to start all the packets for interstate compact for parole. Be sure that she has all the information about the job you have lined up and residence, and a letter from you wouldn't hurt either. The best of luck to you!!!

Hi! Read that info that was sent to you on the AZ web page.
Let me know how this goes because my husband and I will be going through the same thing when it comes time for him to be released. I need to get his parole transfered here to NY.
I was trying to get him to do the rest of his sentence in NY, but I didn't get to far on that. NY told me they wouldn't take him just because I wanted him closer. I'm going to keep trying though. I wish you the best of luck to get your transfer approved. Keep me posted so I know how to fight the same battle when my husbands getting ready to come home.

I had the same experience as mrspac-man when I tried finding out getting my husband's prison time transferred to California. There is no room in California prison, especially with the excuse that I want him closer to home!

The counselor should be starting the Interstate Compact packet for parole (and probatiion) with my husband this morning. I think it needs to be started about 6 months prior to the earliest release date. I think that is to allow for a lot of "sitting on someone's desk" time. We are a little late in starting the packet -- he only has about 4 and a half months before his earliest out date -- I am hoping that I will be able to "encourage" the paper process along from my end.
