Default going for first visit tomorrow!

My bf has been in Elmira reception for 2 Weeks tomorrow. I am planning a visit with my kids, our first. Any advice would be very helpful. Can I bring him cigarettes or money? I know I need to bring the kids birth certificates and ss cards. And I have my license, what other form of id for me? My friend is coming with me. Can she leave after a little while with the kids and then come back and get me? Please help! I'm so nervous, I don't want to screw anything up for this visit. I need to see my baby!!

No packages till he is there 30 days. So no cigs. On Id you are good. Yes she can leave but tell them that when you are going in. Should be fine. Bring many quarters. Call before you leave to make sure he is still there.

Thank you. Do you know of anything in the surrounding area, like a mall, that my friend and kids could do when they leave?

If your friend is going to leave with your kids before you, she and the kids will need to be on a separate visiting form than you. Like Momma Ann said, tell them which of you will stay on the visit longer and which will be leaving earlier. Also, if you go visit on a weekend you go to the hospitality center in the parking lot and you'll fill out the forms there. If you visit on a weekday you go straight to the prison lobby and fill out the forms at the processing desk.

We live about 1 1/2 hours away. So no idea about the area. We are visiting tomorrow, Thursday, so I guess we will go to the lobby when we get there. I can't get there til about noon, is that ok?

Noon is fine. The lobby generally opens at 9am. The inmate count is at 10:30am on weekdays. They don't process visitors during the count. They'll be processing again by noon. Enjoy your visit.

I have a pair of Jeans that have holes all down the front of my legs...are they acceptable for a visit? My bf loves them, I really want to wear them for him.

no they will not be acceptable. You must dress very conservatively. No underwires, no metal that you cannot remove; nothing revealing, short, tight, see through. Bring alternate clothes to change into in case they do not let what you are wearing in.Especially at Elmira, be conservative.

I usually stay in Horseheads (about 10 min away) and there is a huge mall there that is actually very nice called Arnot Mall. There is also a Walmart and a bunch of strip type stores, restaurants, etc that can keep them busy.

In addition to what MommaAnn stated, all that goes for the children also.
