Unhappy **Approved....but not approved...grrr**

Ok, so I'm super confused....I sent in my visitor app in Sept and my boyfriend told me a few weeks ago that I was approved! *claps* Sweet!

But then....he got a notification yesterday that says I'm NOT approved for *contact* visits! um, what the? I have no idea why that would even happen....has this happened to anyone? I have never ever had anything on my record, I'm not an employee or ex-employee, etc! I honestly don't get it....

Please give me some reasons why this would happen....also, if I called, would they be able to tell me why? Or is it secret or what? Don't worry about hurting my feelings either....if you guys think it's fishy and he just doesn't WANT a contact visit with me, tell me that too! I hate being confused!

It could be an issue with him and not you. I would call his caseworker and ask.

Is it DOC or a federal prison? You can definitely call and ask. They should tell you. I doubt he wouldn't want a contact visit with you. It also wouldn't be anything you did. Does he have contact visits with anybody else? It might be something on his record. Keep us posted.

I'm not sure here in Louisiana, but in Texas Contact visits are allowed for family members. A couple have to be married. If someone has more info on this subject let me know. Thanks.

In Louisiana, you can have contact visits even if you aren't family. As long as the inmate has not gotten his contact visits taken away for discipline reasons.

I'm in agreeance with Determined. You can call and ask, it won't hurt...just be professional when you do. Also, I agree that it probably has more to do with him than you. Non-contact doesn't mean it will alwayyyyyyys be that way. Once he starts getting into programs, and proving that he is a good inmate, he can then speak to his caseworker to get them changed to contact. Just be happy you get visits....some aren't so fortunate!!

Smile **Finally!!!**

I'm so super happy!! I just found out that I'm approved for contact and non-contact! But....it's been a nightmare for like the last month!

I sent my paperwork in like months ago....they received it September 27th! I've called twice and my cutie's mom has called like 3 times! And finally today, she called and they said I'm approved....the lady at Angola did say that they've had a huge increase in visitor app's this fall so if anyone else out there has been waiting for awhile, that's why. I talked to a super nice girl named Lisa (in charge of DR visits) and there's also a totally nice girl there named Ashley who handles some of the paperwork as well....just as an fyi if anyone needs to call!

omg, i've been so focused on making sure I'm approved that I forgot to be figuring out what to wear! grrrrr
