not all tdcj units take common law marriage papers . so check the unit first and see

Hello all writing from crappy austin, Tx. and just wanted to let you all know i know what its like to get married by proxy in the state of texas. Its like going to hell and back proving you are married. The warden told me and my husband they never recieved the marriage licenced and therefore couldnt allow us to have contact visits till he recieved it. My husband had taken the actual licence to prison to give it to the warden himself he was so sick of the lies. About a month later we were finally able to have a contact visit literally a day before my release. I was heated that it had taken so long. I sure was glad though after a year to finally hold and kiss my baby.

when you marry in prison there is a form that he needs to mail to you so you can fill out and then send back to them and go from there. They have to approve it and everything. Thats the beginning process....as far as for Mississippi

Not sure how it works in Texas but in CT the inmate has to request a marriage package from his counselor be mail to u. Once you get the package you fill out your part and mail it back to the counselor, my suggestion is mail it back speedily! Once the councelor review your information and everything comes back clear you all set a date and then your on your way to getting married but you also have to pay for the marriage license($30) and ($150)to the justice of the piece or a chaplin of ur choice. Rings you can also have but they have to be bands only. I'm speaking from CT point of view only. But I hope this is helpful.

Hopefully it hasn't changed so the information is accurate. Go to google marriage by proxy for Texas it will make sure i am stating it correctly. You have to do it all by proxy no institutional marriages. Once it is done the prison will recognize marriage by proxy. It is relatively quick so if you know you want to do it each county has it's own destination for getting it done.

I just got married, on the 16th of August, and Bowie County was a dream to work with. Grayson county was difficult, and so was Navarro. I don't suggest going there for a ML, either place. But Bowie was *perfect*. Walker would have been OK too.

Ok, I see that this post is from 2003 - 2005... Would all the information in here still be correct? As in the forms and all that I would need!?

Well you go to whichever county courthouse, to the county clerks office, anywhere in TX. You ask for a marriage form by proxy. A new form came out a couple months ago, that no longer requires it to be specific to someone who's incarcerated. You send the form to him and have him fill it out. He has to get it notarized, they typicall have notaries in prisons in the law libraries. He sends it back. You take that paper and the fee which is usually $75 back to the county clerk. They do some paperwork, ask you some questions, then print you out a marriage certificate. You have to wait 72 hours, then you can have a ceremony performed with a judge or justice of the peace or whomever is authorized by law, usually it's easier to do a judge or jop in the same county courthouse. You pay them their fee which is typically $50 and they sign your certificate. You take it back to the county clerk, and pay them an extra $22 for a certified copy to send your boo, and voila, in about 3 days they mail it to you, your original and a certified copy which you can send to your husband. Simple as that!!!

Default Marriage by proxy?

My guy mentioned about proxy marriage? that you can get married without being there, I tried to look that up in Google and I dont get the answers I need, So I will try on here =) The first question is, Can you get married without met the person in real life? and the other question is, Can we get married even though im not a Us citizent?

The best thing to do since you aren't a citizen is to call the county court house that is in the area of the prison they can help with the questions you have. But you still need to find out how it works in his prison he will have to do that. Honey

Where is your man? If he's in TX, CO, CA, or MT, you can get married by proxy. You do not have to have met him in real life to do this, although I would recommend you meet the person you're about to marry before you do it!

You can get married even though you are not a citizen, but I don't know if the procedure varies at all, so you should definitely call the county clerk in the county you wish to marry in. To marry by proxy, you will need a copy of his ID or a certified copy of his birth certificate, along with an absent applicant form for him. Some of the counties have this form online that you can print out and mail to him to fill out. If you're doing this in Texas, you need to plan to be there for at least 3 days, and bring someone with you to stand in for your guy.

Well I just wore my attire for work, jeans, blouse, heels, I did it on my lunch hour! I didn't feel awkward, but I was nervous! The judge was super nice, he told me he didn't have to go through the whole ceremony, but ask the pertinent questions, and so he did, do you ME take YOUR BOO to be your husband, then asked my friend who stood in by proxy, do you know that BOO takes Me to be his wife, yada yada, then within 5 minutes it was done. He told me that when my boo gets out we can come and get it done between us two for free since I had already paid him the 50 to do the ceremony. It was simple and easy, the awkward part came on my drive back to work, I was like dayum I'm really married!! LOL!

Your realization on the way back to work sounds like something that would pop into my head and made me laugh. Congrats on your wedding as well.
