Requesting a Transfer
« on: August 24, 2015, 03:23:54 PM »
My Lo has been requesting a transfer for the past 4 yrs and keeps getting denied due to no bed space and properly placed. I called the transfer coordinator office and they could not release information, and all he can you is just keep requesting a transfer. Is there anything else he can do.  :wc13:

Unfortunately, all he can do is keep putting in requests. Most places require a 6 month wait between requests, so he must wait until he is eligible to submit them.

Here are a couple of other things to consider:

1) He must make sure that he is eligible for whatever facility he requests a transfer to. For example, most people cannot get into a minimum until they are under 7 or 8 years.
2) Getting a hardship transfer (to be closer to family, etc.) doesn't happen all that often. Programming is a better option when asked why he wants to transfer. You can help out by checking which facilities offer what he is looking for.
