No, a felon can't enter a state prison facility unless they are not on parole or probation.  There are a few exceptions I think, but all you can really do is fill out a visiting questionnaire and send it back, and see what they say.

Yep, as long as you are not wanted for anything, on the visitation list, and the prison does not protest!  Hope that helps.....  Good Luck!

Yes, states prisons generally don't allow felons to visit them. The prison may make an exception if you are a direct relative, but you will need to ask each individual prison if they do that.

You have to get written permission from your parole officer and also get permission from the State Prison you want to visit someone at's permission to step on the premises.I think it all depends on the individuals situations. Good Luck

Don't take the word of a bunch of people with unknown credentials. Look it up on your state prison system website visitor information.

Most definately not. You have to apply for visitation & if you have any felony you will be denied.
