Inmate Marriages

The Arizona Department of Corrections permits offenders to marry provided that the marriage is legal and does not pose a risk to the safe, secure and orderly operation of the Department or jeopardize public safety. Permission to marry does not supersede or change any instructions governing visitation, release procedures, mail and property or phone calls.

An offender applying to marry should review Department Order 904 at their library for an outline of the process.

For further information about the marriage application process, refer to Department Order 904, Section 904.07.
