Default Quick question about visit this weekend..

So usually I have no issues with visits and which days to go & what not..
But this week, I sent my email on TUESDAY for my Sunday visit.. I got an email back saying to be there at 9 am on Saturday the 7th..? So is it for Saturday ? Was it moved to Saturday instead?? Anybody else had this happen?

Default when can I visit?

My boyfriend was just moved out of reception at SQ and mainlined at Deuel. He called his grandparents Sunday to let us know and told them he can't have visits for two weeks. Does anyone know if that means I would be able to visit him next Sunday (which would be exactly two weeks after he was moved) ?

Default Visiting denied

My husband is in DVI reception. My visits were denied because my license is suspended. Only due to a fix it ticket. Can I get a valid California ID and be approved...since my driver license is not valid. I have no criminal history or background.

The number on your CA ID and CA Driver's License are the same.. It's the number they check with DMV.. If you can fix the ticket, you can get paperwork from DMV showing it's fix, and re-apply. The same thing happen to me when I had a FTA..

So get proof the fix it ticket is fixed. It was a break light. Even though my license is suspended if I get proof its fixed I can try again?

The denial you were sent will tell you what you need to get fixed.. I had an FTA (Failure to appear) and I had to pay the ticket, send in proof from DMV, and submitted a new visitor form, and I was approved..

Default how old do you have to be to visit alone?

My boyfriends mom went to visit him today and she was told anyone under the age of 21 can't visit alone. Does anyone know if this is true? I would like a visit alone with him but I am only 19.

I was told there was no visiting while in reception. Am I correct in assuming this is incorrect information?

There is no contact visiting in reception as far as I know but you can get 1 hour behind the glass visits.

Hi, here's the number for the visiting hotline...1-800-374-8474
Just follow the prompts and listen for Deuel Vocational Institution..

Your hubby will be in orientation for appox two weeks, and he may not be able to have visits during that time. Check with the visiting sargent, or the visiting department to make sure that your application followed you.. When my husband was there, I was told that you have to re-apply at this prison.. The number to DVI is (209) 835-4141
~Good Luck~

Hey,
My husband was just sent there two days ago. How does the visiting process get started? Does he have to send me an application or can I go online and get one some where? Also do I have to wait a while to get approved to go see him? Thanks for your help =)!

Default Visiting for guys in Reception

Hey My fiance just went to DVI two days again. Do I have to fill out an application to see him if he is in reception? Can I see him at all while he's in reception? Also can he make phone calls?
Please let me know.
Thank you =)!
