Default Visitation Form: address listed on my DL is not my home address

The address listed on my DL is not my home address. I put my current home address on the visitation form, is this a problem? Will my visitation form be denied? Should I send another one?

I was always the person visited so I don't know the answer.

My concern would be that the problem could occur when you visit, after your application has been approved. To be sure, have the person you plan to visit find out the answer from their counselor, the visiting room, or by asking on a cop-out.

If your visiting approval address must match the name and address on your photo ID, then you can either get the prison to change it, or get the address on your photo ID to match the address the bop has on file.

When I visited the address on your photo ID had to match the address on your visiting application.If they are not the same you will be denied visiting.

Can you have it corrected? Paperwork showing you are in the process of correcting your ID may he!p bridge that problem.

If the address is not correct it is not considered legal ID, addresses on DL are supposed to be changed within 30 day's of a move.

In KY we have 10 days to change the address on our license.

Can't you just go get a new license with the updated address? That's what you are supposed to do anyway.

Same way in Arizona. Seems the easiest and fastest fix would to get a new ID with the correct address.

I had the same situation with my ID not matching my address but had no issue with getting approved for visits and no issue getting in visits with my ID. You can always have your LO check with counselor but I had no issues.

As with most everything that happens at the bop, it depends on what the COs on duty that day say. For some, it apparently doesn't matter if the addresses match or not, but others will use it to deny a visit.

I agree, find out the answer from someone in authority at that prison before you travel. If the counselor or a LT gives you an answer, be sure to get their contact information to give to the visiting room people if a problem arises. Even so, you will still be at risk of someone saying "I don't care what they said, I'm in charge".
