It happened to my husband & I last month! After 7 months of going through bullshit & fighting to get ours back when they were taken for no logical reason our first one was scheduled for the day after my birthday, May 15....I sent the money order off March 22....I don't know when they ran his account for the money but he got a letter from the FV Coordinator dated April 30 stating that our visit had been canceled cuz the MO hadn't cleared & that same week he got a receipt from the cashier informing him that it cleared on May 2, just 2 days after the cancelation notice was written! I was so pissed & hurt! We ended up getting another date 2 months away, July 14!

Oh! And also, when you send money, do you have to send just enough money for the fv or for the fv and restitution?

Congrats on soon to be getting your FVs.....they are amazing & well worth the headache that goes with them when trying to prepare from them! When your husband gets the Family Visiting Visitor Package that he will get from the Family Visiting Coordinator once you guys are given a date, it will have a CDC 1839 Form (Exemption of Family Visit/Temporary Community Leave Funds from Restitution Fines/Orders) in it....you complete it and check off that the funds are to pay for food during a Family Visit & enclose the form with the money order! This restricts them from taking out restitution from the FV funds. Hope this helps!

Smile ~~~New Last Name!! do i need to get new approval~~~

I just recently changed my last name on my ID. Do I have to get re approved to visit? I still have my old ID, but it has a cut out circle on the expiration date. Also how often does one have to get re-approved??

Any info will help! I want to visit, and my visit will only be behind glass, but I dont want to make the drive for nothing!

Thanks~!

^^^ If I were you, I would get a new ID before going. One thing that they do make clear is that your ID MUST be current. If the hole on the expiration date makes it to where they can't see the entire date, then that will be an excuse for them to deny you... && trust, they have no problem turning down visits @ CEN! Also, you have to update your visiting questionnaire every 2 yrs!!!! Hope this helped you somewhat.... Good luck!

Default Family Visit Question

I've had 2 family visits so far and when my husband put in for another one the family visiting coordinator told him all family visits have to go through the counselors now.. Has anyone else run into this? Of course it's been 2 months and his counselor has yet to bother looking at the file. Any advice would be appreciated.

It's been 2 months and his lazy counselor hasn't even looked at his file yet. Is there anything I can do?
