This is the copy of the letter IDOC sends when someone is off MSR-Parole, the letter everyone looks forward to. Click on the link below:

How long does it take to receive this letter after the parole time is over?

Could take up to a month.. it comes in a pretty pink envelope addressed from the IDOC.

Thanks!  That's about the time I figured it would take.  Less than two months and he can be up for early discharge.  Everything is going great, I don't see why it would not happen.  Thanks again!

If he gets off early on parole, from the time the PO tells him he is done, it should be up to 30 days, could be sooner. Told my LO to make sure he kept up good work, until (well after too) that release letter came!

Does the parole officer put in the paper work for him to get off early or do they give it to the parolee to fill out and send in?

I'm really confused.  Does the parole officer make this decision or is it the parole board??  Does anyone know how this works with early release from parole.  My LO has been on parole for one year and it is a two year parole.  He just saw his parole officer today and she says if everything goes well he will get done.  So how long will it take for them to inform him he is done from this date??  Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks a bunch! :wc1:

His PO will put in the paperwork, but until he gets his final paperwork in the mail, he needs to do what he's been doing all this time while on parole, everything they want him to.  It can take a month or more, so just be patient.

My LO says thank you!   We will wait patiently.  He has nothing to hide from them and has been doing very well! It's nice to have my boy back!

Tell him, he is welcome and I hope he gets his letter quickly.  It did come in a pretty pink envelope marked IDOC.  Let us know if it's still *pink*.

Good question and I think that was answered here somewhere, I'll see if I can find it.. Any way it comes, it will be addressed by IDOC and takes about a month or so after they are released from parole and of course if the PO was efficient in filing it.

Hope you get it soon.

I meant to say my son received his discharged papers in 2014 not 2013. Anyways the letter is dated July 28 and says he was discharged July 23 so the papers came pretty quick

My husband came yesterday it was in a white envelope, I took to work with me instead of giving it to him, (I am a meany) I bought a card saying congrat on you New Beginning,, Put the letter in a box unopened i stopped and bought some wrapping paper wrap it you put the card on top. He said baby you shouldnt he thought it was a gift, He read the card and open the box and just smiled. So we are done it is over signed seal.

It depends on the person/conviction, but yes, they sometimes cut parole in 1/2 after you get out. so if you had 3 years, they MAY release you after 18 months on parole and it all depends on their history while out too.. This doesn't happen all the time, but it happens.

If someone decides not to parole out and wants to finish up inside, they would 1/2 of their parole time inside.
