My boyfriend was arrested for possession, dui, and driving on revoked (nothing TOO bad). I am due in less than 2 months. He is not supposed to get out as this point in time until about 3 months. Will dupage county Illinois allow an inmate to attend the birth of his child if at least JUST for the labor & delivery part??
If a presiding judge issues a court order to attend then yes, yet this is a remote possibility given discretionary.

You need to call his lawyer immediately,
A written motion will have to be prepared, along with documentation proving this is true. Don't be surprised that a judge doesn't just take the defendant's word for it.
The other side would have to be given notice of this motion.....probably at least three business days. He can't just have his lawyer show up and make the request verbally and expect things to go well.
Hope this helps. Good luck to you.
There is no requirement that your boyfriend be permitted to be allowed to attend the birth of his child. He would need to contact his attorney and have his attorney request the judge that he be given a furlough; however, it absolutely is not guaranteed.
