Default Washington state prison GA/ special visit

Still waiting on being approved for visitation....10 weeks and counting
I have seen one or 2 posts about something called a special visit we can apply for? Like a one time thing... Anybody have experience with that?
I'm desperate here... My relationship with my loved one is suffering greatly. I used to complain about county jail visit through a computer screen but now I'd give anything for one of those
Thanks in advance 💜

I'm still waiting on approval for visitation and it's been 3 weeks come Friday. Totally sucks waiting. Especially not knowing how long it truly takes for a background check to come back. I've been told its in processing. but I'm wanting to be approved so i can go see my loved one at Christmas.

I haven't heard anything about a special visit (but that doesn't mean they don't exist, just that I haven't heard about them). *If* there is a special visit, it would probably be something that would require your loved one to have enough "good time" to qualify for it.

Hiya, I am not sure if this would help. I was granted a one time visit. This may not apply to your circumstances followed by the DOC may have different rule.

My circumstances were that I had already booked the flights and hotel to visit. I was travelling from abroad.

My love on was transferred twice, after booking. Furthermore, I needed to apply for visitation for the new DOC which requires 6-9 months for approval. I contacted the CO 's office after taking everything into consideration I was given a one off visit. So I suggest speak with the CO's secretary. Hope this helped.

I have read about the one time visit online when i googled who can visit an inmate. You can get a one time visit but they have to submit the paper work. I'm still waiting to get approved and just got word that they may have lost my paper work. Which would mean they've been lying to me saying it's in processing when it's not. and one thing i can't stand is a liar.
