Default Is there any way I can get contact visits with my boyfriend in TDCJ??

Is it true that I am unable to have contact visits with my boyfriend? I read on the TDCJ website that only immediate family could have contact visits. If so, is there a way around this?

Once you have built up a visiting history you can request a contact visit from the warden. He/she doesn't have to grant it but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Welcome to Prison Talk, thank you for joining us! What coachy1 suggests above sounds like a solid plan to me - have you visited him at all yet? I hope you will find a way. Keep us posted on how things develop!

That is true. But if hes at a unit that only has contact visits you can get it another way is if his status changes. Mine became a trustee so all his visits were contact. Otherwise your visits will be behind the glass

There is always a chance, but it is entirely up to the warden. It helps if he has no family that visits or if he has family that visits, they visit VERY rarely.

It is nice when he is at a unit where everyone gets contact visits though. We had that for the first couple of years. And then we were blessed by a warden that saw that I was the only one who visited on a regular basis.
