It has been taking my man 14 - 20 days to get his mail. It is incredible. And really tough to keep a conversation going.

I don't have any problems with sending or receiving mail, it usually takes 4 days or less for me. I'm wondering if what you write in the mail that has something to do with it? Just wondering,sense they do read your mail I suppose.

Ms. Missouri, yes he has to send you a visiting form. Curious, how did he get all the way down here in CA? for processng??? My husband is also there at NKSP. he sent me a visiting form the first week he got there, and that got to me fast. All of his letters get to me within 2-3 days, it's the out going that takes weeks at a time. So write him and tell him to send you a form. So you could get that process going. It takes around 30 days for approval. Good luck. Kuttin

my boyfriend is in delano and I sent in my visiting request form, they sent me back a paper saying I was denied. I forgot to put the cdc number of my babys father on there. can I just fill out another visiting request form and send it in? or do I need to send a letter to the warden?

Default going to delano from wayside

My boyfirend is waiting to go to Delano for processing. Is there any way to speed it up? He can't stand county jail anymore, is there a phone number I can call to help speed up getting him transfered out of wayside and into prison reception?

thank you for any help you can give. This is the first time I have had a loved one in the prison system.

Um, I don't think they ever supply writing materials... I've never heard of that. You are allowed to send up to 50 sheets of paper, I believe, and they have to be loose leaf or on a legal pad. I send my friend a return envelope every time I write him, the kind with embossed postage on it. I get those at the post office. Good luck!

Cool

Hi there I'm Donna, Gars_Mom, Thanks so much for this site. My son has been at NKSP for about 10 days, he was transferred from Tulare County. I had put money on his books at Bob Wiley and it followed him but I am not sure how long it will take before he can access it. I believe he was able to take the stamped envelopes with him as he has already sent out several letters .

As I understand it as long as they are in reception they can not recieve any writting materials..... somebody else may know more about this. Also even if their funds are available to them to order envelopes in County they could only order on a certain day and then recieve them on Monday's. I am not sure if they get any "welfare evelopes", (as the guys call them), that they recieved at County lock up or not.

I am also experiencing the prison system for the first time and appreciate all the information.

In reception there's no phone calls, but you can send them a pkg of 50 sheets of paper and postage paid envelopes, (get from post office). You can send them 2 pens (clear see through) in sealed pkg. That's about it until they get out of reception.

I'm hoping someone will be able to help w/ visiting question. my brother is the inmate and I (his sister am an approved visitor). My husband just got approved and on his visiting form we listed our minor son. but the visit I'm planning to make this weekend would just be me & my son, with out my husband. Will they allow my son to visit w/ me? Should I take his birth certificate? Or will they only let the accompaning minor visit w/ the adult they were approved with?
