You would have to get permission from the warden to travel too long a distance. It is highly unlikely that they will allow that or furlough to a hotel or temporary residence.

It depends on the "paperwork". There is a wide variance of time. It could be 2 months or 6 months before they actually walk out the door.

Yes, that is the step-down pattern for inmates close to the door. They are given little bits of freedom to slowly rejoin the family unit and successfully get back into society. Your fiance needs to be on top of his game in following directions and being where he is supposed to be at all times. This is not a time to play it fast and loose.
