I currently working on finding more marriage information for Missouri. I can tell you a couple things to get you started. The first being that you have to be on his visiting list. I know that sometimes a person on probation/parole have a harder time getting approved, but they can. He will also need to check with the chaplin on the marriage policy.

I do know what kind of probation you are on depends on if you get approved or not.

Yes, make sure your on the visiting list. Have him get the information from the chaplin of the facility. It will explain everything on there. I know Bowling Green you have to get a Minister to marry you, they don't have anyone there in the chaplins office. I found one that lives in that area if you need his name and number. Just PM me and good lucK! SWEETY TWEETY

Hello My question is my boyfriend is currently in prison and working on getting his divorce, after that is accomplished we would like to get married. Right now I am currently out on an appeals bond and could be returning to prison at anytime. What I would like to know is can two inmates get married in Missouri? I have been with this man for 13 years and we have a child together.

Selina, yes you have to be on the visiting list. Just got married at NECC, everyone that attends the marriage has to be on the visiting list.
Good luck!!!!SWEETY TWEETY

Good Luck Selina In Your Upcoming Marriage. As Sweety Tweety Said, You Do Have To Be On The Visiting List To Get Married. I Can't Imagine Why They Would Make You Wait 5 Years To Visit, But You'll Need To Work On That. Maybe He Could Put In A Special Request For You To Be Able To Visit On The Day You Are To Be Married.i Don't Know If Missouri Allows Marriage By Proxy Or Not, But I Will See What I Can Find Out For You.

Each prison is a little differant. My advise to you on such a short notice is to call the warden or the prison chaplin. They should be able to give you more specific information. Some prisons allow dispodable cameras and some have inmate photo tickets the inmate can purchace from commissary. I hope that after the weddign you or your new daughter in law will come back and tell us all about it.

Hi,i just wanted to let you know that the chaplin in Vandalia told me my son would be given a special visit to marry his girlfriend,because he is also on probation he got permission from his parole officer.So maybe you could talk to the chaplin and ask can you be given a special visit to marry that day.Im not sure how that prison works,but starting with the chaplin really helped us,good luck.Pat

I am trying to locate a minister who will perform my wedding at NECC in Bowling Green, MO. Does anyone know of any ministers in this area who perform prison weddings? I have already received the marriage packet from my fiance', now I just have to start jumping through the hoops to get it done. Any help anyone can give me on locating a minister would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, i'm new to the boards, i found out about it from a girl at work. I am currently engaged to my guy in Missouri, i'm finding it hard to figure out how or what the process is, what time i have to atke off and the requirements and what i got to go through to be married to him while he's in MDC. He has me on the guest list and such, so thats taken care of... i'm just not sure what i have to do or who i have to go through to get it done, and if there is a waiting period before you can do it officially.

Gidg

I am planing to get married in march to a girl at Chillicothe. I havn't been approved for visitation yet but the staff told me that I didnn't have to be to get married. Does anyone know if this is true? Also any help would be greatly appreciated. My fiancee and myself want this to come of without a hitch, so please give me an idea of what to expect and what I'll need to do. Thanks.

Exclamation Farmington Correctional Center Marriages

Ok My bf and I have been planing on getting married in Oct of this year. He had some issues come up and is now in FCC. If any one can tell me anything on the issue of marriage at FCC I would appriecate it. I know that I'm on his vistors list I have been listed as his fiance on all his paperwork from the begining. I would love to be able to continue as planned with our wedding. Due to the fact that it is very inportant to us to be married and was before he got sentenced. So if any one can help I would appriecate the help. Thanks
