    TDCJ MARRIAGE AFFIDAVIT Forms

    When printing them I would suggest using

    After All We Are In This Together As A Whole

    Texas is a common law state, meaning that a legal wedding ceremony is not required if you want to claim common law marriage to your loved one.

    In regard to TDCJ there are 2 methods to present yourself as common law married with your incarcerated loved one.

    1. Before your loved one was incarcerated, you could have possible gone to the local county clerk's office and filed an Affidavit of Informal Marriage. This would have required both parties being present. If you took these steps prior to incarceration, you may obtain a certified copy of the informal declaration of marriage from the county clerk and send it to inmate records at your loved one's specific TDCJ unit and request the status be honored.
    (Or)
    2. When your loved one arrived in TDCJ they are given the opportunity to add you to their family tree and visitation list. Your status at that time can be listed as common law, however TDCJ typically requires you to fill out their Affidavit of Informal Marriage. This document is for TDCJ purposes only. And if you are trying to prove you are common law married to another entity you may have a difficult time in doing so.

    Keep in mind with informal marriage the burden to prove the marriage exists is upon you in all circumstances.

    In addition, if your loved one is no longer at an intake facility, many units in fact no longer honor the informal marriage request if it wasn't completed during intake or if the offender has been incarcerated for an extended period of time.

    Good Question, since the inmate is the one who is suppose to make the facility aware of their intentions by doing an I 60 form (I believe that's what its called) to request the forms (if there available to them to be filled out)
    I would assume the first page is theirs to fill out as the bottom page or page 2 is asking for copies of license, state issue ID or birth certificate. Along with needing a Notary

    It is best if you call the facility and ask for visitation they can answer all your questions on the subject as I read that Members sent the papers to their loved ones to turn in (I don't know if they get to the inmate or they are then sent into to the records dept)

    If you would be so kind to Post what you find out as it would help other Members with the same Questions Thank you.

    I'm pretty sure you send it in to your loved one so they can turn it in

    I'm assuming that is what all the ladies that have printed out the forms have done, filled them out and sent them to their loved ones.
