I believe that if you are a spouse you can visit in any event. The only bar would be if you had some violent felony. However, call the prison and ask their policy.

It's up to the prison. They have the power to bar anyone from visiting an inmate.

Yes, but you may be able to get special permission. You need to be honest with them and ask how you go about applying for permission.
