Hi Sue - I'm trying to get info on how to get around having to have my fiance with me to obtain the license. I called the probate court in Richland County and was told they couldn't tell me how to get it done, I'd have to figure it out on my own. A power of attorney wouldn't do, I asked. She asked if I had an attorney. I know in Cuyahoga County where I'm from they permit an affidavit from a physician if a medical condition prohibits one or both parties from being there to apply for the license. HELP!!!! Thanks!

Hello!
Ok, I will do my best to answer these questions for anyone wondering about marriage in Ohio. Although I'm pretty sure each prison has its own policies on marriage I will do my best. I will go down the list...
First of all I was married 3 yrs. ago in Feb. at Mansfield Correctional Institution in Mansfield, Ohio.
It was a long and stressful process for us due to some mess ups in the system (long story)....But...
His cellmate hooked us up with a minister (at MansCI you have to find your own) that we talked to and he agreed to marry us. No counciling,but will when he gets home. Due to my husband being in protective custody at the time of our marriage ours lasted only about 15 mins., and we did not get visit time either. Were not allowed to take ANYTHING in except for the marriage certificate and rings. No camras at mine. The only people that were there were me him the minister and the woman that arranges the marriages ( she was our witness). I had to go to my local county Probate Court and the Deputy Clerk had to meet with both of us to fill out the paperwork (at the prison). Ours was $25 plus the gas money for her to take me to the prison. He had to wear his "uniform", I just wore dress clothes.
Well, hope this hepled someone out there or gave an idea of what to expect. But like I said all prisons are different.
Rachel

It is correct that each prison within a state may have differant rules you can expect that for the most part the information provided above is a standard guidline.

Hi there,
I wonder if there is anyone having experiences with a binational marriage?
My beloved (he`s in an Ohio prison) and I want to marry but I am from abroad.
I need to have some infos about how long it takes to get a social security number after the marriage, how to get a valid driving license, such things.
I need those infos to plan the moving and such.
Some things I could figure out so far, some not.
Further I need help to figure out how to send cheques to state offices. For example the alien fiancé visa-application has to be sent by my mate - but he cannot send a cheque!
can anyone help me?
Thanks for trying/reading/helping!
faraway

i need help. the minister at Maci said we could get married there but we have to get a marriage license in that county. When i called that county the lady said it would have to approved by the judge. Does anyone know why? The chaplain said we could do it but we have to get a lawyer to do the paperwork, But i can't find any lawyer to do this. The court lady said it's because i live in Michigan and neither one of us is a resident of the state of Ohio. I need some help desperately. if anyone can help me please let me know

Hi,
My fiance is at Mansfield Correctional. I called my counties Probate Court, and they told me we BOTH have to be present! Ugh! I called Richland County where he is, and they told me if it wasn't his home county to try there! I call Lucas County and got a sweetheart of a woman on the phone, who took my phone number, and was going to talk to the Judge. She also mentioned to me I would probably have to get an Attorney to do the work. Anyone have any idea of the price ranges of this? If anyone has any information I would appreciate it. T

RCI (Ross Correctional Inst) experience. I had to get in contact with the wardens assistant and she sent me a packet to fill out, I had to pick 3 dates just incase there was a problem with one.

I had to find a chaplain that would mary us in a prison. I had to get a lawyer to go in the prison to get my husbands signature for the marriage certificate, because they wanted us both to be present at the court house, and obviously that wasn't happenin, so I had to pay a lawyer to witness his signature.

He could only wear his blues, I wore regular clothes. The only people who could go were those on his visit list. We had our rings. The wardens assistant had to be present, she was our witness. Our son got to give me away! Oh before he married us, he wanted to give us a little counsel, just to be sure this was what we both wanted. He got to speak to both of us with out the wardens assistant there. We got married in a little room off to the side of the visit room. I had to buy those picture tickets out of the vending machine, no cameras, no unity candle, nothing but rings. It was a little akward, and had some road blocks along the way, but it worked out in the end.
So my advise to anyone attemting this, Plan way in advance, get in contact with the prison, and most of all be patient! It may get frustrating allong the way, but it will all work out! I hope you find this info helpful, Good luck ladies!

Angry getting married soon

My fiance and I haven't had the wedding yet, but it should be happening soon, at least I hope. I live in Columbus, OH. He is in Marion Correctional Institution. I had to file the marriage license in my county (Franklin), then they had to take the license up to Marion county where he is. The deputy at Marion County is taking over the license to the institution on Monday for JD ( my fiance) to sign. Then it has to come all the way back to Franklin County. Once it comes back to Franklin, I have to pick it up, wait for Marion CI to give me a wedding date. I filled out the marrige license application on Feb. 14th and it's just now getting to Marion for him to sign. I hope MCI hurries up and gives us a date, because the license expires April 15th. We already have the Warden at MCI's approval. This is just taking forever!! I've found a clergy to marry us, but she is charging $100.00 plus traveling fees. Does anyone know of cheaper clergy in the Columbus area?? I am running out of money!!

I learned that every Institution has a different policy. I personally think Ohio is a huge joke when it comes to try and get married, the harder they can make it the better they like it. We ended up getting married, but not in the State of Ohio. If you want any info on that PM let me know.
