Default When are the home plans supposed to be submitted?

My BF is supposed to go to the board Nov 5. I am really confused. I thought he was supposed to have his home plan ready 60 days prior to the parole board meetinig. I spoke to him on the phone and he said his counsellor told him that he isn't supposed to have it until after he is granted parole. I am really confused, as I thought the board has to approve his home plan????? He is in St. Marys. Does anyone know the correct answer to this?

When I paroled in 2003 I had to have my home plan completed and the facility had to have it to the local parole office 60 days before my parole date. My home plan was approved before I saw the board and when I was granted parole I was able to leave that same day. It's hard to believe they would hold inmates after they had made parole until a home plan had been approved. Call your local parole office. They should be able to tell you the answer.

Good luck!

My hubby just went up on March. They did not do any home plans before that.

Wow - then does that mean they are held until a home plan is approved? That can take weeks sometime or are they releasing without an approved home plan. That's certainly something new.

I guess since the board turns so many inmates down (unfortunately) when they go before them the parole officers who do the home checks and have to approve the plan, don't do them until parole has been granted now. I do know they didn't keep them on file so each time the inmate went up, they had to check out the home plan again.

Just my opinion (as someone who paroled) even though you know you are leaving, I think it sucks to have to wait 14-30 plus days after you have paroled to go home!!! Between this, the board not granting parole, and judges not taking advantage of the alternative sentencing options that are available to them, no wonder our loved ones and friends are stacked up like cord wood and the system is "overcrowded'.

Glad he got to go....sorry he had to wait! I can still remember how I felt the day I paroled. From being granted parole to being released was 3 hours. Wouldn't have taken that long, but we had to wait for count to clear!

my son was paroled from mcdowell county jail on march 18th 2007. Its now april 6th and he is still waiting. His home plan has been approved for north carolina, and they said all they are waiting on is the realease papers. One person in charleston tells us 60 days, the lady at the parole hearing says 10 days, his parole officer in north carolina says about 4 months!!! Does anyone have the true answer?

What a mess and how unfair! Since he is paroling out of state it can take up to four months with Interstate Compact to be approved so that is probably what his PO in NC and the Central Office in Charleston are referring to. Did the board know his home plan was out of state? If they did, I can't imagine why they would say it only takes 10 days for an Interstate Compact Agreement to be approved. On the other hand, nothing the board does should surprise me, but it always does.

I'm sorry you are having to wait so long. Hopefully he will be home with you soon. Good luck!

My boyfriend is at Stevens. He was telling me that some of his boys made parole months ago and are still waiting to be released due to hold up with the homeplans.

Yep, that's the way it is now. Official word is home plans should take 10 days to 2 week to be approved, but we all know that's not the case.

i can feel everyones pain here...when paroling out of state i know it takes 3 mos... we tried that... we tried and in state plan to a half way house in p-burg... got denied b.c of administration probs at the half way house... we tried a home plan to his step dads.. denied not blood family.. his blood family wouldve been a hella of a long shot... he finally made it to beckley work release... where now im still waiting to see him....he has to wait 90 days before he can furlow anywhere....he made it there may 14th so hopefully something breaks here soon...the thing that i hate is the fact that at beckley you cant start working immediately.. you have to do community service then work at the work release then get a job but they dont provide them with anything... i had to send my boyfriend things from food to a blanket...

How messed up is the system that they have to send someone who has been paroled to a work release center, taking a bed that someone who is still at a DOC facility would be eligible for. I've seen it happen over and over and over again. It's unfair to everyone.

Good luck. Hope you get to see him soon!

Its very unfair.. i stated in a post before that im glad he made parole on the first itme up but this is out of hand. he is tellin me all the things he has to pay for and how right now there charging rent and he is 400 dollars in the hole.. im buying him clothes and food and all kinds of things to keep his head above water but then they tell him he cant work for two more weeks how do they expect people to go to work release and maintain and not have a job. to beat all he has savings from his previous facility and he cant have that til he is officially paroled out. so technically he made parole and is in work release taking a bed away from a doc inmate struggling while he could be out working staying with his step dad who wouldve passed the home plan. its crazy

It is unfair on so many levels. It never fails to amaze me how screwed up the system is.

I hope things start looking up soon! Good luck!

There can be no alcohol or weapons of any type in the home - period. You cannot parole to a girlfriend or fiancee - you must be married. The home must have adequate living space for an additional person. Also, there has to be a good support system in place, which includes financial support.

There are a lot different things that factor into getting a home plan approved, but these are a few of them.

No, the PO visits the home as part of the approval process. They are the ones who does the "investigation" of the home plan.

LOL I think I confused the issue. The home plan is investigated by the parole office after the inmate makes parole, and that is when the PO makes a home visit.

When you said after approval I thought you were referring to approval of the home plan, but I think you meant after parol was approved.

Sorry!
