Doc. # OP-MPF-05.03.151

#1)The prisoner must submit a letter to the chaplain stating his intention to marry, giving the name of the future bride. If the prisoner has never been married, he must state that in the body of the letter. If the prisoner has been married before, he must submitt a copy of the divorce decree. If the spouse is deceased, a copy of the death cert. must be submitted to the chaplain.

#2)The fiancee must submit a letter to the chaplain stating her intentions to marry the prisoner. She must give his name and MDOC number in the body of the letter. If she has never been married, she must also state that. If she has been divorced, she must submit a copy of the divorce decree or death certificate. She must also submit a copy of her birth certificate to the chaplain.

#3)The chaplain may schedule one counseling and marriage planning session with the prisoner and his fiancee. This will be during regular visiting hours in the visiting room when the chaplain is available. Visitiing room rules apply. Have the officer at the sign in desk notify the chaplain at the beginning of the visit.

#4)Prisoner/Fiancee is responsible to contract with a minister to preform the ceremony. MPF chaplain will not perform the ceremony. If the couple cannot locate a minister, the MPF chaplain will assist in finding one. The minister contracted to perform the wedding must contact the MPF chaplain by phone or letter three weeks before the ceremony to confirm his/her part in the wedding, confirm the date and time, provide LEIN info and provide name, address, and phone number of ministerial licensing agency.

#5) Once requirements # 1, #2, and #4 are met the fiancee will contact the chaplain regarding setting a date for the wedding. The fiancee will also submit the LEIN info to the chaplain at least 3 weeks prior to the wedding date. A copy of the Prisoner Marriage worksheet will be given to the prisoner upon request for marriage info. It will be up to the prisoner to get it to the fiancee. If the fiancee is a resident of MI, she will apply for the license within the county she lives. If she's not a res. of MI, she will apply in Grand Traverse County where the prisoner currentlt resides. The marriage license is valid for thirty days and can be renewed if needed.

#6) When the wedding ceremony is done and all copies of the marriage license signed, the wedding parties will be escorted out of the visiting room. The groom and best man (if he is a prisoner) will go back to their housing units and the bride and wedding party will return to the info desk.They may sign up for regular visits as long as there are no restrictions and they are on the prisoners visitors list.

#7) The Wedding Party: Up to ten persons can attend the wedding including the bride and minister. The prisoner may request another prisoner to be the best man. No one under the age of 18 will be allowed to attend.Regardless of the relationship of the prisoner to any member of the wedding party, his physical contact is limited to ONLY a hand shake.

#8) LEIN Clearence: 3 wks. prior to the wedding date, the fiancee will complete and submit the Prisoner Marriage Worksheet to the MPF Chaplains offince The list will include the Full legal name, Social Security Number, Driver's License or State ID Number, Date of Birth, Race,and Sex of each person in the wedding party, including the fiancee. If the best man is a prisoner, The Name, Number and Lock will be provided to the chaplain by the groom. The timeliness of this info is required to provide time to run LEIN's on all members of the wedding party. They Do Not have to be on the prisoners approved list. You need al least two witnesses as the marriage license requires two to sign and attest to the ceremony.

#9) Marriages will be sheduled for Friday mornings at 9:00 AM in the visiting room. The outside party must arrive at least 1/2 hour prior to the scheduled 9AM in order to allow for processing. By MPF Procedure, the ceremony will last no longer than 20 minutes. This will include time for pictures.

#10) Three poloroid pics may be taken in the visiting area immediatly following the ceremony. The prisner may only keep one picture. Picture tickets can be purchased by any of the wedding party in the lobby. Pic tickets cannot be purchased by the prisoner. All tickets must be used or returned to the visitor.

#11) A suit or Tux can be brought in for the groom on the day of the wedding. It must leave the institution after the wedding. The groom will change in the shake down room prior to and after the wedding.

#12) The grooms ring has to be new and only worth $50.00 or less. No stones, or jewels or inscriptions allowed. You must present the receipt for the grooms ring at the wedding.

#13) No personal cameras of any type allowed.

#14) There will be no provisions for music, flowers, or food.

#15) Even though this is a special day, general visiting room rules apply. No picking up the bride, no sitting on laps, no garter above the knee, no excessive hugging or kissing or inappropriate touching. Of course, the CO's will determine the appropriatness of the wedding party's behavior.

#16) No same sex marriages allowed.

Ok, I think I covered it. Now I have hand cramps.

I don't know if this will get seen, but has anyone been married in a Michigan prison lately? Waiting to hear back if we have been approved to get married soon. Anyone who recently has got married if you could let me know how long it took to get everything approved, what you wore, what I should know, and any other advise would be appreciated. thanks in advance

We were not approved until 2 days before the date my husband picked on which was March 8, 2018. It was wonderful to see him again, as I hadn't seen him in 2.5 years. I love my husband so much, and hope I will maybe now get a chance to get visitation soon.

If I'm out of state how does that work with timing?

I'm assuming I have to make two separate trips: one to get the marriage license from county then 2nd trip to actually get married?

How long does a wedding license last? I only visit every 4 months because of the distance & was hoping to be able to do everything in one visit, say if I stayed a whole week??

Another question, did the rules recently change so that inmates can't wear outside clothes for the wedding?
