Default Intro & questions about dawn de Loas prison

Hi everyone.My partner has been sentenced to 6 months in prison,which isn’t very long compared to others.Its a first time for my partner and also first time for myself having any kind of family in a prison.
He was taken to amber laurel in Sydney straight away.Then moved to the MRRC in Silverwater.I made a visit to see him as soon as I was able to only to turn up and be told morning visits were canceled.Luckily enough I was told to come back one hour later.I came back and went through all the security and was waiting in the visits area.I was called out and told my partner was no longer there!!I was so upset.Went back to the front were I arrived for my visit and they said he was being moved over to dawn de Loas and was waiting in reception.I drove for 4hrs for this visit.Only spoke once on the phone and let my partner know I was coming.I hate to think of how he was feeling knowing I was most likely there but they chose that time to move him and not be able to see each other.
Has anyone had this happen to them?And has anyone had any experience with visits to dawn de Loas?Thanks

Welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your introduction to the Australia/NZ forum for answers from members who are familiar with those prison systems. I'm sorry for the runaround you experienced while trying to visit.

There’s a handbook online which I found quite helpful. If you just type in google “corrective services families handbook” it should be one of the first results as a PDF
