Subject: Marriage in prison
You might be able to, but the prison rules for marriage are all different. We would suggest calling there and speaking to the chaplain.

sometimes, it depends on the facility... not every facility allows marriages so we would recommend that you contact the chaplain or the inmate's case manager to find out.

Months and months if the petition is not contested. If it is contested, it'll take a long time

Our advice would be to hold off until he gets out. Create some memories with real wedding pics and not those of doing this while he has his prison uniform on. BUT, if you are hell-bent on proceeding, then you should call the chaplain and see if they will do the ceremony.

This happens more times than i can remember. For whatever reason, the ride-or-die girls hang with her inmate and when he gets released, the relationship falls apart. I don't know the statistics, but it seems strangely high for something you might not think would happen. No loyalty from these inmates - be careful how you proceed, however, marriage while incarcerated is not the answer.
Subject: Marriage in prison
You can petition the staff for a marriage waiver. The inmate must have an impeccable record while incarcerated and is not someone with a short sentence. Contact the case manager, counselor or warden to get the exact details and if your inmate is eligible for matrimony

You can't get married at that facility. The city jails are short term facilities and have no provision for inmate marriages whatsoever. Marriage for an inmate would only happen to long-term offenders in a state or federal facility for an inmate with a clean incident report history.
Subject: Marriage in prison
In some rare cases, you can marry an inmate. The inmate must be a long-time offender, in state or federal prison. County jails will not allow marriage. One thing we would like you to think about - maybe you should wait until they get out. You want to remember this day as special. Doing it in prison is less than that.
Subject: Marriage in prison
It depends on the facility, the inmate's disciplinary history and time left on his sentence. We recommend calling the facility to see what they will allow.
