Question Voluntary manslaughter. Would his offense prevent Family Visits?

My husband was convicted of voluntary manslaughter. I read that sex offenses and serious violent crimes can disqualify inmates from receiving EFV. Would his offense prevent us from having EFV? we have received them for years in California. (Trying to get him transferred to Washington)

This one I truly don't know the answer to. Manslaughter tends to be viewed as "not as serious" as murder, but more serious than assault, so it's kind of a gray area. It may even be that one institution would view it as "not serious" while another would classify it as "serious".

I do know that not all facilities have EFV's, so there's that to think about.

Default EFV's

I can give you some more insight on this. My husband was sentenced to 2nd degree murder because he didn't take the plea of manslaughter. Anyhow he is approved for EFV's right now with his mom so he can definitely still get EFV's just as long as he does not have anything on his record in regards to domestic violence. The other rule that Washington has is that if you got married after he was incarcerated you have to wait 3 years to get efv's if he has over 5 years left on his sentence. We qualify for EFV's November of next year

My fiancee committed an offense that would bar him from EFVs, but he is approved to have them with his father and grandmother. It's usually considered on a case-by-case basis.

As a side note, we are trying to get him transferred from Airway Heights, WA to CA. I've been told it's much easier if you can get a bed to bed swap with another inmate. If you're still trying, I would love to talk to you about working it out together!
