Ask the inmate answer
The service takes 2-3 business days to reach the facility. Be mindful that all incoming mail is opened and inspected by the prison staff for content and contraband. There are sometimes delays that occur once the mail makes it into the mail room. If the jail has very short visits or requires a specific visitation registration processes, it makes it even more difficult. Some jails make exceptions for those who must travel to visit the inmate. Generally anything over 150 miles is considered far when it comes to visiting an inmate. If you live within this distance you are typically required to comply with visitation rules such as the length of the visit and the process to be approved to visit. If you live more than 150 miles away, many jails make exceptions and offer "special visit" exceptions. You will need to do a pre-registration before the visit. They will usually allow more than one visit while you are there. You will need to contact the facility to make these arrangements
