G. Robert Cotton Correctional Facility (JCF) Visiting Information:

The prisoner must complete a Visitor List form (CAJ-334) identifying immediate family members* and not more than 10 other potential visitors. Those persons the prisoner has placed on his/her visiting list must complete a Visiting Application (CAJ-103) to request approval to visit. The Visiting Application must be submitted in advance to allow for review of the Application. INCLUDING A SELF-ADDRESSED-STAMPED ENVELOPE WHEN THE APPLICATION IS RETURNED WILL ENSURE THAT THE PROPOSED VISITOR IS PROVIDED NOTIFICATION OF HIS/HER APPROVAL OR DENIAL TO VISIT. NO VISITS WILL BE ALLOWED WITHOUT THIS APPROVAL.

*Immediate Family Member: A grandparent, parent, stepparent, spouse, mother-in-law, father-in-law, child, step-child, grandchild, sibling, half-sibling, stepbrother and stepsister. An aunt or uncle may be included if adequate verification is provided that they served as a surrogate parent. If there is inadequate documentation in the prisoner's file to confirm this relationship, the prisoner or family member will be required to provide the documentation necessary to adequately confirm the relationship.

A proposed visitor shall be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list if all of the following criteria are met:

The proposed visitor is not subject to a current visitor restriction.
The proposed visitor is not a prisoner or a former prisoner in any jurisdiction. However, prisoner or former prisoner who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur.
The proposed visitor is not on parole or probation in any jurisdiction as a result of a felony conviction. However, a parolee or probationer who is an immediate family member may be placed on the prisoner's approved visitors list with prior approval of the Warden of the facility where the visit will occur and written approval of the supervising field agent.
The person is 18 years of age or older, an emancipated minor, or the minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner. However, a minor child, stepchild, grandchild, sibling, step-sibling or half-sibling of the prisoner shall not be approved for placement on the prisoner's approved visitors list under any of the following circumstances.
The Department is notified that there is a court order prohibiting visits between the minor child and prisoner;
The Department is notified that the parental rights of the prisoner for his/her child have been terminated;
The prisoner has been convicted of child abuse, criminal sexual conduct or any other assaultive or violent behavior against the minor or sibling of the minor unless an exception has been granted by the Director upon request of the warden. The warden will be notified in writing if an exception is granted.
The proposed visitor is not on another prisoner's approved visitors list except as an immediate family member. In other words, a visitor may be on the list of all prisoners who are immediate family members, but only on the list of one prisoner who is not an immediate family member.
If the proposed visitor is a Department employee, s/he may visit only as set forth in the Employee Handbook.
If the proposed visitor is a volunteer, s/he may visit only as set forth in Policy Directive 03.02.105 "Volunteer Program".

Notwithstanding the above, the warden may deny placement of anyone on a prisoner's approved visitor list for the safety or security of the facility, protection of the public, previous violations of visiting room rules by the proposed visitor or for other reasonable cause as determined by the warden.

No time limit unless space availability is limited.

    Hi Betty,

    As noted in the following regulation, mail the list to the facility housing your family member.

    The MDOC Visiting Application (CAJ-103) shall be made readily available to prisoners and proposed visitors at each facility and shall be available on the Department’s website. Each person named on the Visitor List who wants to visit the prisoner must complete the MDOC Visiting Application and submit it to the facility where the prisoner is housed. The form must be received sufficiently prior to the visit to allow for necessary review, approval, and placement on the prisoner’s approved Visitor List by facility staff.

    Good evening,
    I have been tirelessly trying to check the status of a visitors application but no one has been able to provide me with an update. Would it be possible to receive contact information for someone who has the ability or authority to expedite the process? Please feel free to contact me at the above email address. Thanks
