    Exclamation Get Your FDOC Vistation Forms Here

    FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF CORRECTIONS VISITATION FORMS

    Please click on the link to get your FDOC visitation forms for download. They are on MS Word and I've also included the .PDF format as well for those who don't have MS Word.

    They are in English AND Spanish and the Visitation Rules are included as well. This should hopefully assist everyone who needs these forms.

    Visitation Form - English and Spanish (MS Word version)

    Visitation Rules (MS Word version)

    Per the DOC, when you are done filling out the form, send it directly to the camp / prison where your loved one is; address it to "CLASSIFICATION DEPARTMENT" unless you know who your loved one's classification officer is, then send it directly to that person.

    If any of the links fail to work at any time, please email me at timestaff@yahoo.com as I'm not always on JPay and may not see your replies for a minute. Thanks!

    I hope this makes it more convenient for everyone!

    Do you have the forms in any other format like Word Perfect? I get errors when trying to open it. It doesn't convert correctly. Thanks

    Thank you so much for this form. My guy has been in his temp place for 3 weeks & not sure if/when he will be moved so he can't get a form. Hopefully I can get this completed & approved so that we can see him soon.

    Thanks again.

    Default Phone number to check request for visit?

    Hi,

    I'm brand new at this. If your person (inmate) is still being processed at Lake Butler, do you have to wait until they get transferred to a permanent location before submitting a request for visitation?

    You mentioned that you called and received permission. To whom or what number did you call for this information?

    I'm glad for you that it only took a couple of weeks. We haven't been able to establish phone contact because we are in process of moving to a townhouse and we won't have a land phone until next week. We were told that phone contact could not be set up using a cell phone. Do you have any info on that?

    Anything you could tell us would be helpful.

    Thank you,
    FF

    Hi and welcome to jpay. First off, I think you could go ahead and submit the visitation form now and it will follow him to the permanent location. My inmate was only at Lake Butler for 2 weeks and we waited until he got transferred to send the form. But, I am 9 hours away so we knew we had time as my visit wasn't planned for a few months later. It took about 5 weeks for my visitation to be approved. I never called, but you would call the facility and speak with his classification officer.

    As for the phones, you do have to have a landline and he will have to submit a form with your number and name/address to create a "phone list". If it will be a new listing you will probably have to send him a copy of your phone bill to confirm that the name/address matches the phone number. In my case, he didn't submit the phone list until he got transferred and it took about a month to be approved. About two weeks after he submitted it they requested the phone bill, but I had already sent it to him just in case. It took about another two weeks to get approved.

    Hope this info helps.

    Per my son's classification officer: The Name/phone number on the Inmate phone call approval request form, and the phone bill of the phone number being called- must match. My Son listed his grandmother and her name on his rphone request form, but her son (my sons uncle) pays her bills and put his name on the bill. sooo..... no calls to grandma. At least not until the next time he can update his request form. I believe every 3 or 4 months.

    When I read the visitation info from the FL DOC site, it reads that there are two (2) parts, the form above only has one, am I missing something or is the first part only for inmates?

    2nd part would be instructions. Just make sure you answer all questions, if they dont apply to you, write N/A.

    The links are not working, yes the forms were legit, don't know why the form is not online, Marti probably took one home and scanned it to make it available to everyone. No you don't want to send one in to a facility beforehand.

    Yeah these links were broken when I 1st got here back in 2010 lol...but my husband sent me visitation forms...in FLDOC Visitation FAQs, say that the inmate needs to send you the visitation forms, and you're right TexasDust, you don't want to send a visitation form to their home facility BEFORE he sends the form to you. Here's the FLDOC Visitation FAQ:
    http://www.dc.state.fl.us/oth/inmates/visit.html

    1. How do I Apply for Visitation?

    1. Complete a visitation application:
      The inmate you wish to visit must send you an application. An application must be completed by all visitors 12 years of age or older. The application form consists of two parts: Form numbers DC6-111A and DC6-111B. You complete and submit the DC6-111A. The DC6-111B is a visitor information summary which should be reviewed and retained by the visitor.
    2. Where do I mail the visitation application?

      Completed applications (DC6-111A) should be mailed to the Classification Department at the inmate's current location (see the Statewide Facility Directory for address information).
    3. How long does it take to process a visiting application?

      It takes approximately 30 days to process an application from the date it is received.
    4. Can more than one visitor fill out the same application?

      No. Each person wishing to visit must fill out a separate application.
    5. Who will notify me if I am either approved or disapproved to visit?

      When a decision is made regarding your application, a notice is given to the inmate. The inmate will notify you either by phone or correspondence.
    6. What are some of the things that can disqualify me?

      To list a few, a criminal history, providing false or inaccurate information on a visiting application, mailing an incomplete application, etc. Possessing a criminal record will not automatically disqualify you for visitation. The nature, extent, and recency of criminal offenses are taken into consideration. However, as of January 8, 2007, offenders must be discharged from community supervision for at least one year prior to being eligible for consideration.
    7. Can I be on the approved visiting list of more than one inmate?
      A visitor will not be permitted to be on more than one inmate’s approved visiting record unless they are immediate family members. If you are already on the approved list of a non-family member, you may be added to the list of a family member. However, you may not be added to the list of a non-family member if you are already on an approved visiting list, family or otherwise.
    2. What are the registration and visiting times?

    Regular visiting is held on Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00 a.m. through 3:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (8:00 a.m. through 2:00 p.m. Central Standard Time). Registration begins at 8:15 a.m. (7:15 a.m. CST) on both days. Visitors will not be processed after 2:00 p.m. (1:00 p.m. CST) unless authorized by the duty warden. Visitors will be allowed to park in designated spaces no earlier than 7:30 a.m. EST and 6:30 a.m. CST on visiting days.


    3. Can I visit on a holiday?

    Regular visiting is permitted on the following holidays:
    • New Year's Day
    • Birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. (third Monday in January)
    • Memorial Day
    • Independence Day
    • Labor Day
    • Veteran's Day (November 11th)
    • Thanksgiving Day
    • Friday after Thanksgiving; and
    • Christmas Day
    If any of the holidays listed above falls on Saturday, the preceding Friday will be observed as a holiday. If any of these holidays fall on Sunday, then the following Monday will be observed as the holiday.

    4. What are the Visitation Rules?

    1. Can I just show up at the institution to visit an inmate?
      No. You must fill out a visiting application and wait for the inmate to notify you.
    2. Can I give anything to the inmate during our visit?

      No. With the exception of foods purchased inside the visiting park, you may not exchange or give anything to the inmate. You may contact the on-duty warden to request a special exception to this rule.
    5. What Can/Can't I Bring?

    1. Can I bring an approved minor/child even if I am not the parent?

      Any minor 17 years of age or younger who cannot furnish proof of emancipation must be accompanied by an approved adult on the inmate's visiting list. Further, if you are not the parent, you must present a notarized document from the parent or legal guardian, not an inmate, giving you permission to bring the minor/child in to visit, regardless if the minor is approved. The visitor bringing the minor to visit cannot notarize the document.
    2. What baby items can I bring into the visiting park?

      A maximum of five (5) diapers, three (3) clear plastic baby bottles or two (2) sipper cups for toddlers, one (1) clear plastic baby pacifier, three (3) clear plastic jars of baby food with the original seal intact, and baby wipes or towelettes (in a clear plastic bag). Also, you may bring in an infant baby carrier (subject to search), one (1) set of infant clothing, and one (1) non-quilted baby blanket to keep the infant warm.
    3. What clothing should I NOT wear to the institution?

      It's always a good idea to dress conservatively. The following is a list of some of the clothing deemed inappropriate: Tank tops, skin tight or spandex clothing, shorts that are more than 3 inches above the knee, skirts, fish net style clothing, clothing with offensive language/pictures, military style camouflage clothing to include jungle (green), urban (grey or black), and desert (tan or brown), and see thru clothing.
    4. How much money can I bring in during my visit?

      Up to $50.00, in $1.00, $5.00, $10.00 and $20.00 denominations only or silver change, per visitor, regardless of age, to purchase snacks and beverages from visiting park canteens or vending machines. All snacks and beverages shall be purchased and consumed in the visiting area. A small wallet or pouch may be used for containing the bills and any change received from the canteen or vending purchases.
    5. What else may I bring into the visiting park?

      You may bring a vehicle key necessary to operate your vehicle. However, keyless entry devices are not permitted unless the duty warden or designee determines that the device is the only means for the visitor to access the vehicle and it does not pose a threat to institutional security.
    6. What If I need my prescription medication?

      You may bring in medication, but only the dosage necessary. The medication must be in the original prescribed container and must be clearly marked. However, certain restrictions apply and the department reserves the right to prohibit certain prescriptions which may pose a threat to institutional security.
    7. What if I require injections for medical purposes?

      If you have a medical condition, such as diabetes, which requires injections, you will be permitted to depart the visiting park and take the necessary medications. Needles and syringes must be secured in your locked vehicle and are not permitted inside the visiting park for security reasons. Do not dispose of needles and syringes on institutional grounds.
    6. Is visitation a right?

    No. Visitation is a privilege and as such is subject to suspension/revocation if circumstances dictate.
    For the complete rules governing visitation, please see Florida Administrative Code, Chapter 33, Section 601.711-737.
    7. If I experience a problem during my visitation, whom should I contact?

    You should ask to speak to the officer in charge (OIC) at the visiting park. If you are unable to resolve the issue, you may contact the on-duty warden.
    8. I have been a pen pal with an inmate for quite awhile. May I visit the inmate?

    Yes. You must submit an application for consideration. However, we urge the public to be cautious before establishing social or pen pal relationships with inmates. Please visit our web-site at www.dc.state.fl.us/activeoffendersto verify information about Florida inmates before engaging in correspondence with them.
    9. Who do I contact about visitation?

    You must contact the Classification Officer at the inmate's current facility (see the Statewide Facility Directory for address information).


    10. What about Special Visits?

    1. How do I get a special visit?
      Contact the institution and speak with the inmate's Classification Officer. Special visits are not given routinely but are reserved for extenuating circumstances and are granted at the discretion of the Warden.
    2. Do I still need to fill out a visiting application even if the warden already granted me a one-time special visit?
      Yes, unless you were already approved to visit.
    11. Who has final authority on visitation?

    The warden at each facility has the final approval or disapproval authority for each visitation request. (See the Statewide Facility Directory for contact information).
