    Can somebody tell me about how long it takes for the to release them after they approved the address? My hubby got granted parole on Aug. 31st and today they called and approved our address but I am trying to find out what is the next step. The man that called me said it shouldn't take no longer then a month but I don't know. I am new to this.

    Thank you

      try calling these numbers and talking to the ombudsman. they probably won't give you a release date until it is down to the wire but the ombudsman will be able to give you more information than anyone. good luck!

            My hubby is also on a 12. he was denied first parole all cuz somebody out here is against hie getting out. We are still fighting for him to be granted and allowed to come back home to his family. But honestly it takes quit some time to get any kind of answer, well in my experiance it has. But good luck with everything and keep your head up.

              Support Letters for Parole Packets

              I would like to hear from the love ones of offenders, who have been up for parole. Did you feel like your support letters made a difference? Did his letter to the board have an impact? Was it more about the nature of the crime? Did a parole attorney change the outcome?
              Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks

                    A parole packet is something you put together for your loved one incarcerated. It contains support letters from friends and family, certificates (from courses while incarcerated), family photos, parole plan, etc. There are examples under Parole Packet preparation section. It goes in before they are reviewed by Parole Board.

                      The Commissioner I spoke with commended me on our packet and said that it made a huge difference for him, he talked to me at length and even called me the next morning to tell me what to expect because Van had an institutional case that was going to have to be looked at when assessing how long it would actually be before he walked out the gates. I have made our packets every year but this was the 1st year Van actually gave it to the IPO in his interview instead of assuming she had it, he also asked her to please turn it in with her paper work.
                      He is finally home after 21 years! Praise God!!!

                          That would be nice to know. My daughter has been up for review, but today I noticed that her projected release date changed to the maximum. she is in for forgery and nothing violent. PRD was showing 11-22-2011 so we thought she would be out then, but now has been changed to maximum and and can't call parole status line till monday. Guess she got denied parole again Anyone else had PRD change to maximum?
