what are the procedures for a parole transfer? how long does it take? what needs to be considered?
Question Details: my son who has a parole violation is incarcerated in an Illinois prison . he will be getting out on parole very soon ...he requested for his parole to be transfer ed out of state before his release ...how long does it take?
A transfer of parole is a discretionary matter, that means it is not automatic. First of all, he should discuss this with his PO. If they support the transfer that will be an important factor in obtaining it.
Some of the other factors include - what your son in on parole for, for how long, and the reasons that he wants to move. If he is requesting a transfer to to family considerations, health concerns, or employment opportunities, then he stands a better chance of having his request granted.
As for the exact procedure and time involved, his PO will best be able to answer that; it varies from place-to-place.
