Yes, it's the same as pre-start class.  I'm not sure about the visiting with your daughter...as each case seems to be dependent on the PO.  Klo, our member, wasn't allowed to have her children see their father the entire parole...it was almost cruel.  His SO had nothing to do with small children, especially his own little boys.  I hope your loved one has a more reasonable PO.

Great...cuz he kinda told me he bailed on those classes. Omg, they're still gonna let him out right? Yes, it is cruel...esp since his SO also had nothing to do with children and this happened 12 years ago...waaay before we even met. Uggh, I just want this all to be over an done with already. We're both getting a little too tired of the prison game. Thanks for all the info Dazz!  :wc30:

I called field services and they told me that the home site we gave them is under investigation. Do you know how much longer does it take a po to call you because my l/o is in NRC at Stateville and he was there on a violation but they decided to not violate him and release him but he has to find another home site. We tried a few addresses but due to him being a SO its been very hard and stressful on his mom and I. Can someone tell me please normally how long it takes for a PO to call you to see home site since its saying under investigation field service said. Thank You so much.

No one can really tell you how long this will take, it all depends on the PO and how quickly they do their checking. 

Hopefully everything goes through with this new location and he can be released ASAP, would be a nice new year for him and you!  Best to you both!

Hello,
I just received the PO Host Site Agreement letter today, I have many questions regarding it. But rather than burdening you with them, can you direct me to where I can read all the rules & regulation for it, please. I have somewhat an idea of it from reading the other posts, but I want to be very clear on it.
I don't understand why IDOC seems to be with holding specific rules & regulations like this, from us out here. But if I have spoke out of place, in saying that, PLZ forgive me... Is there website, to go to that has all the rules & regulations regarding the IDOC, besides the IDOC? It just seems to me, that it takes an act of congress dealing with the IDOC...

However, IPT, :wc6:  U have been & are such a great blessing!!! I thank you so very much for EVERYTHING you do & the COMPASSION you give, to the lost ones, like me!!!
Keep the Peace within yourself, then you can also bring Peace to others!!!

I think the host site agreement lists all the rules that would apply to your inmate and you have to check them that you agree and sign it and send it back..  Try calling field services at the prison or if a PO contacts you, you can always ask them the questions you might have.  There is no place on the IDOC website that explains it all.

should i be worried if I haven't received the host site agreement for my hubby's parole in approx. 2 months.  We know that he will be paroling him, but I haven't heard or seen anything.

Was this his home before he went in? if so, they don't always send a host site agreement if it's HIS home.

Yes he lived in our house before he went in.  I still haven't seen or heard anything yet.  Should I call field services just to be on the safe side?

If it was your (both of you) house to begin with, there is no need for the HSA. Unless there is some reason he would not be allowed back there (domestic abuse charge, restraining order, SO restriction, or you denying him home), there is no reason to worry.

His name isn't on the mortgage (only mine is) but this is where he lived since we got married (3 months before he got locked up).  There is no other reason why he would have any other restrictions.

My man is going to be released from prison is early July in Illinois. I'm stressing really hard right now about his parole, and if his agent will talk to the landlord about his crimes that he's done 15 1/2 years for (murder & robbery) Since its a violent crime will the parole agent inform the landlord?? Or is it confidential?? I just signed for an apartment in Illinois, I live in Michigan right now, and never had a parolee to do this with.
I'm seriously stressed thinking about all this and not sure who to ask or what to do and don't want to stress my man cause he's done 15 years and finally getting released...
Please Help!! Will the Parole Agent notify the landlord or want to talk to him to get his ok? Or only talk to me and get my consent? Then if something goes wrong will I be held responsible since I signed for him to live with me?? If anyone can answer my questions or give me some Illinois (Chicago) Parole Info I'd be forever thankful.

Hi, welcome to IPT .... It would depend on your lease and if you would have to disclose who is going to live there along with you and if they ask if that person is on parole.    As far as just living with you, the parole department would probably have you sign the Host Site Agreement since this is not his home!

Also, you didn't go into detail about his conviction, but you might want to check out the new Murderer and Violent Crimes and Youth Registry that went to effect this year and see if he qualifies.  Here is the frequently asked questions page link:

http://www.isp.state.il.us/cmvo/cmvofaq.cfm?CFID=72002554&CFTOKEN=f9bea54df08b0a12-8E94788F-D865-08D9-811255C00473EE66&jsessionid=ec3057b38be359c9d4ac138614582e57381d


If he does qualify to register for this list, you might have other restrictions he would have to follow in regards to housing.

Good Luck to you, hoping you get it all put in place for him to come home!

If your lease prohibits felons from residing on the property and your landlord finds out he is there, you both could be evicted and then the parolee will be without a host site which could violate his conditions. It is better not to try and fly one under the radar but instead just be honest. Your landlord and neighbors are probably going to figure it out anyway when they see an agent (or several agents at times) show up at your door on a regular basis. These of course are just suggestions.

How much time does IDOC need to approve a place? We got my sis's apt, the tenant will be vacating on June 24th so anytime after the 25th the po is welcome to stop by. My B gets out July 6th, that gives us about a week or so. Is that enough time for everything to get processed? My B can give them the address tomorrow already to start processing, mentioning that I won't be there till the 25th. We got 5 weeks left to go, I'm more anxious, nervous, and scared than when I was going into labor!  :wc35:
