Why Submit A Parole Packet?

Parole Packets are a means by which the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole receive information about an inmate's rehabilitation, participation in educational classes, and character which are used to determine an offender's parole vote. A parole package is not necessary for an inmate to make parole.  The voting members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole do not require anyone to do anything.  However the voting members of the Texas Board of Pardons and Parole receive hundreds of files each month for review for parole and mandatory supervision.  A paroleRead More


The Most Important Part of a Texas Parole Package

The title to this article may be just a little misleading because every part of a parole packet, especially when done using the system we describe in our book How to Prepare a Texas Parole Packet, is important.

When Should You Start Preparing Your Texas Parole Packet

For some reason, many people believe they should wait until the inmate is up for review before preparing the parole packet. This is absolutely incorrect! The Parole Board can receive the inmate's file and vote on parole as much as 60 days prior to the actual eligibility date. If a vote has taken place then the board members do not review the new materials. This is why it is important to begin work on the Texas parole packet early, as much as six months to a year before the parole eligibility date. IfRead More

Paroling to Another State from Texas

Many people who live in another state are arrested in Texas while passing through. This can cause problems when it comes time for parole since parole usually requires a home address that can be visited and evaluated when it comes time for parole. However, the rules in Texas allow for a potential parolee to ask to be paroled to another state and supervised there. This is due to an agreement between the states known as the Interstate Compact for Adult Offender Supervision. All 50 states, Puerto Rico, the District of Columbia,Read More
