Estrella Jail, a dormitory-style jail located on Durango Street in Phoenix, Arizona, was built in 1991 and houses about 1,000 prisoners, most of them female. You may not visit an inmate in Estrella Jail if you are an illegal alien, if you have ever been convicted of a felony, or if you have been imprisoned at any time in the past twelve months. If, however, you are eligible to visit an inmate, you should be aware of a few visitation rules for the Maricopa County Jail System.

What to Expect at the Estrella Jail
When you visit, you should dress modestly, because a dress code is in place. You will be required to present a valid form of identification that has been issued by the government and contains a picture ID. A current driver’s license, a work visa card, or a resident alien card along with a DMV card are all acceptable forms of identification. No one under the age of 18 may visit unless accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. While children under the age of 14 do not need to furnish ID, children aged 14 to 17 must show a school-issued ID, driver’s license, or DMV ID card.
Before your visit, you will be asked to complete a form. Use the real first and last name of the person you are visiting and his or her booking number if you know it. You may not visit a prisoner more than once in a seven-day period, and each visit is limited to thirty minutes. An inmate may have no more than two visitors at a time, not counting infants under the age of one.
Prior to visiting your inmate, you will have to place all personal effects (cell phones, wallets, jewelry, sunglasses, etc.) in a locker. There is a fee for the locker. Visiting hours are 8 AM to 8 PM on Sunday and Monday.
If you or the inmate you are visiting is in need of legal counsel, please give us a call at (602) 307-0808 for a free case review. You can also send us an email by using our confidential and secure email form.
