Question Need help in writing appeal letter for visitation

Hi I was denied visitation with my fiancee. He is incarcerated at Algoa Correctional Center. I live in California and he's in Missouri and was given a 15 year sentence. I filled out the form and received a letter back stating it is not in the best interest of the offenders rehabilitation. I myself had been arrested for receiving stolen property which were crates from behind CVS I was using to pack things due to me moving. I did jail time and formal probation for 3 years which was in 2011. I then was arrested for under the influence put on 3 yrs informal probation only in 2012. I have not been in any other trouble since.His charges are drug related, driving without license. I can only visit him maybe 2 or 3 times a year. I'm thinking of moving out that way but not for a while. Can someone please help me or explain to me why I can't visit and help me write an appeal letter. He's been in 10 months now and I kiss him dearly. I would really appreciate any help

Write to the warden explaining why it is in the best interest of the offender's rehabilitation for him to receive visits (is yours the only one? If so say that) from his fiance. Be sure to mention that you are not on parole or probation. If the decision isn't approved the first time, be sure to apply for visits again after some time has passed. It can be a process, but some folks have had to apply more than once to finally be approved.

Yes I'm the only one. Actually the caseworker had called me and asked if I was on probation or parole and I told him I wasn't which I'm not. I'm not good in wording my words that's why I was asking for an example. Thank you for your response

Here's a link to sample letters to the parole board for some ideas. My advice is to limit your letters to the visitation/rehabilitation issues.
