my fiancee is in the federal holding facility and he submitted the form (it took a week for the lady to even pick it up) and the day she picked it up was the day I wanted to visit... so I called up there and asked her what I needed to do to get accepted and i guess in the holding facility it is nothin to get accepted because while I was on the phone with the lady and she found the form and enter it in right away and I was able to go see him 4hours later

Default over 3 months

How long did it take for me to get approved for visitation? Well, my girlfriend is housed at CMCF in MS. They received my visitation application the middle part of April and I have YET to be approved. They say it's because of "complications" in their system, but quite frankly I am getting PAST aggravated!! I have not seen her in over 6 MONTHS and am about to go stir crazy! So, for all of you who pray PLEASE keep us in your prayers and pray that I will have the patience it takes to deal with MDOC.

At first while he was at the county I could see him on one specific day once a week. However, on court day which was usually visiting day I didn't get to see him. Once he got transferred it took about 3 weeks to a month to get approved for phone and visits.

That sounds a bit odd. Have you tried calling the DOC in Indiana? When we applied in GA we had to fill out a form & send it in. My son had to fill it out, send it to us to finish & then we sent it back. They do a background check, I believe. It took about a month but not longer that I can remember. I know we didn't go through JPay for anything but sending money & stamps for email.

In Texas your lo asks for name and address for visitors. They add you to the list during intake. His intake was 6 weeks.
