Default Visitation with Children

My kids are considering visiting their father in prison (Parnall)

I understand that they have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Is that true? I am no longer married to their father and am not on his visitor's list. My kids are, however.

Does he have to add me to his visitor list in order for the kids to visit him?

Here is what Michigan Corrections says about visiting inmates.

Thanks, I saw that but it's not very clear about minor children.

Have your ex check with his counselor. The kids will have to have someone with them that has been approved to visit. Also, need their birth certificates, when they go. Have you sent in their visitor apps yet? Hope you get it sorted out.

He doesn't respond to any email I send him. I send in applications for me and the kids (since it looks to me that the children must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian) The kids were approved but I was not because he didn't add me to his visitor list.

I did email him and ask him to add me since i am pretty sure I am the only one who could take them, but apparently he didn't. Not sure what else I can do at this point.

I don't know about Michigan, but many systems limit when, and how frequently, inmates can make changes to their visitor's lists.

I was told that visitor lists can only be updated every 6 months. I had a frustrating experience where it took me two years to get on someone's visitors list, but I don't think that's policy, I think it was a combination of inattention/incompetence.
