Default Hello...fiance is at Loddon prison in Castlemaine

Hello everyone,

Not quite sure where to start or how often people are on this forum? My fiance is at Loddon prison in Castlemaine. He's been in remand since November 2014, at Loddon since April 2016 and isn't eligible for parole until September 2019.

This is by far the hardest thing I have ever had to go through, some days just feel unbearable. Other days are easier and I am hopeful and excited for our future and when we will be back together.

I am in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne and it would be wonderful to find some other women that I can chat to and to help each other through this experience.

Hope to hear from you all soon....

Kat x

Hi Kat

This is the first time I have used this site.. my ex husband and father of my child is at Castlemaine and has 3 years to go.. it's been a long threeecyears as everyday life is pretty much a roller coaster, apart from looking after all his businesses and financial affairs I look after him and have done my best tohejp my daughter and him maintain a strong relationship.. she is 9 and adores her dad.. I can't explain the toll this situation has taken on my health especially my mental health, I'm drained all the time.. we see him every weekend I'm from the eastern suburbs in Melbourne and pretty much my iLife revolves around making sure he is ok and coping.. he is a strong man thankfully and can look after himself but I know that this is taking a toll on him, very unfortunate but he made a mistake and now he has to pay for it.. so I understand how you feel, despite the fact that we aren't together this has turned my life upside down and there are days I just don't think I can keep doing all this for him.., it's very Betty difficult and I don't discuss it with many people only close friends because I'm embarrasssed about his situation.. my only hope is that the next few years go quick and that my daughter copes with her dad being away.. it's nice to have s forum like this to talk about the situation because trust me a lot of people just would not understand..

Hi Kat,
I'm also new to the forum. My partner's currently in remand and I am struggling. I'm also from Melbourne and was wondering if anyone here has a partner in Barwon Prison? My partner got transferred from Port Phillip and I have no idea how different Barwon is to Port Phillip

It's so stressful and would love to chat! I don't think the forum is as active in Australia because I can't find many recent posts.

Hope to hear from you!

Hi everyone

I just read your post I'm new to the forum.. I haven't been to Barwon but know other people who have had a relative there and all I know is that a twin is maximum security prison? Port Phillip well is the worst place I have ever been to so guessing Barwon has to be better.. have you been to visit him as yet?

Yeah Barwon is maximum. I really liked Port Phillip because there was more visits a week I haven't been able too.. I haven't seen him for almost 2 weeks now... It's the worst feeling.

When he got moved from Port Phillip to Barwon I was told that the visitors list would just be transferred over but when I got to Barwon to visit they told me I was no longer on his visitors list.. the reason for that was because I went to court in 2013 for driving.. and although I got no conviction because it was the first time I've ever gone to court they told me I'd have to write a governors letter. I didn't want to argue incase it made his life any harder Are you or anyone on this forum familiar with the process? I sent one in last week and still waiting to hear back...
