I talked with my fiance today and he went to an inmate council meeting for his block/group... and they brought up the marriage issue. He was told that the issues had been resolved and they would start with giving out dates in about a week. Now that might just mean that we get a date for 2 months or however down the line, but at least we will have a date!
Hope this gives some of us some hope.... I have been waiting so long and so have many others and it looks like it might start happening soon!!!
Congrats to all the ladies waiting ---- !!!

Be patient girls it'll be a while. at my prison everything is situated i THINK except for the operation procedures so they told me it would be a few more months,there's no point in bugging about it,it just takes more time out of there schedule when all the girls keep calling you know. call maybe once a month thats it 8-) calipat and cent were working together so as far as i know once the operation procedures are done @least at calipat that everything should be ok,not too sure

No family visits here either, but he is so worth the wait! Been waiting 14 yrs now! Only love will do that! I remember visiting one day & I overheard a "young" girl in line saying that this was only her second visit & they only had been talking for three months & they were gonna get married so they can have family visits......bad ! She will have regrets later I'm sure.

That is bad.. i overheard a young girl saying that after they got married she would only visit for the family visit. I just this it is crazy how all these young girls want to get married just to do it. If you really love him you would go visit regardless if it is a family visit or not.

The Non Weddings with CEN and Calipat isn't a CDCR issue it's a County Issue. The County of Imperial is BS'ing about the fact that their clerks are verifying information on the inmates blindly. It's easier for other prisons because they have clerks in the prison.

I hope the best for all our brides to be, when that special day comes it will be well worth it!

At my prison(calipatria)the rough draft of the operating procedures has already been submitted 8-) once they get it back with the corrections they want made,than claudia fixes them and turns in the final draft we should be good to go!!!!!!!! All i know is calipat and centinela were supposed to be working together so lets hope ladies 8-)

Default Any other options?

Does anyone know if their are any other option? While searching the internet I have came across companies who offer Notarized Prison weddings. Does Centinela allow that? Or I read in one post about a proxy marriage but I thought those were not valid in California unless you are in the Military.

Default marriage update

I just got off the phone with the marriage coordinator's office and was told they have contracted with someone to do the marriages but the whole process is changing as well as fees. She did not say how they were changing. They are going to start contacting the people who have been previously approved. Apparently the list is very long and they will do about 20 marriages at a time. Not sure how often. I turned my application in the first week of august it just went to his counselor last week. I was told it has to be approved by 4 people and then I will be contacted and to allow approx 3 months. Guess I just have to be patient. Just wanted to give everyone the same update I got. The good news is.. Things will now be moving again.

Default marriages

I had turned my request in I believe beginning of August and then I was told it went to my fiancé counselor mid Sept. He had his annual and his counselor told him he did not have it. (He was all sad, thinking I just told him I sent it in) I called Sylvia back and she then said she had it and something about letters needing to be changed due to them now having a contracted vendor and the process is now different. Sylvia said my request would go to his counselor later that day. Well I got home Friday and had a letter from the prison that my request has been received and forwarded to his counselor and to allow approx. 30 days.

So we will see. Due to my work I know how long these contracts take and in my case he is not going anywhere anytime soon. So I will try to wait patiently. I could only imagine how many girls are ahead of me. I'm just glad things seem to be moving again and although I don't know her, sylvia was very helpful in answering all my questions and was very nice about it. I could tell she has been getting a ton of calls. Good Luck to all of us!!

Default (im)patiently waiting!

Has anyone heard any word on the marriages? I feel bad everytime I see my man he asks me if I have called to see what the status is. Sheesh We're still waiting on the approval.
