Have the other people gone to Jacksonville or someone else?  Sometimes it takes time for the transfers to go through, bed space has to open up.

When a bed opens up he will be moved if he's already been approved, IDOC is very overcrowded and he is lucky he is being moved as many are denied because of this overcrowding.

 Your calling lawyers, Springfield and whomever is not going to help that move, it could actually hurt.

Hope he is moved soon!

That's ODD.  My hubby is in Jacksonville and he said guys transfer in every week.  My hubby was approved for Jacksonville back in Feb 2013 and he was approved and left a week later from Centralia. 

They are having a lot of in and out of seg problems right now, maybe that's the delay. 

Hope you find out soon.  Is it possible your L/O is in a class or on medical hold?  That would keep him from transferring.

What is a class hold and what is a medical hold? (medical hold is obvious, but I am an information junkie at this point)
We are anxiously waiting and I'm praying that there is nothing holding him up..... Thank you all for your help, this site is a lifesaver for me!
THANK YOU ALL!!!

yes, he is still in R&C.
They said he will be going to Jacksonville. He has seen multiple people leave for Jacksonville and he is still there in R&C.
There is an issue with his class/offense being incorrect in the IDOC system. My concern is that is holding him up.
thanks again all for shedding light on this

There are probably going over all his paperwork to be sure that his conviction was classed right and he won't move until they have it all straight.   Depending on the Class/conviction, it determines how long he would spend in prison.

Moves are dependent on bed space at other facilities.  My ex-husband put a transfer in from Lawrence to Big Muddy. He was approved right away but it took 8 months for him to move and this was before the massive overcrowding.  Sometime being patient is the only option you have with IDOC.
There is no action better at creating insanity in a person than trying to control something you have no control over.

Only do whatever you are willing to pay the consequences for.
