so im as a result of court this wednesday and the outcome is gong to be 12 months probation in the state of texas. my question is throughout this time i know it is probation rules to not leave the city/county, yet i am one to take a trip a lot and also just visit a few cities via out the year. my question is what is the possibilities of this still happening and what requirements to be done to have actually this approved? am i much better off being up front via the probation officer and letting them understand a head of time and also view if i can this apconfirmed or would certainly i have the ability to fly out and also come earlier un noticed? my trips normally last no much longer than 4 days so i really wouldnt be gone that lengthy.

You are watching: Can my probation officer find out if i left the state

i guess what im really looking for is, does anyone have any type of initially hand also suffer of traveling while on probation?

If acquiring permission is a condition of probation, you absolutely need permission. Violating probation is a good way to land in jail.

Don't carry out this. You'll likely finish up in jail. Ask permission from your probation officer well in breakthrough and also just take a trip if permission is granted, or suck it up and also don't travel for a year- I promise you won't shrivel up and die if you remain local for a year.

IANAL, however I was as soon as on probation for a year. Usually, any take a trip exterior jurisdiction have to absolutely be apconfirmed and also signed off on beforehand also.

If it is apverified, they will certainly provide you official documents stating when you are enabled to leave, once you need to return and also where you are traveling to and also are meant to remain for the duration of your travel. You should save these documents on you at all times in situation you have a run-in via the regulation. If you don't, you're taken into consideration a fugitive.

That being shelp, they more than likely won't provide vacation/sight-seeing take a trip just because you gotta get amethod from it all. In my case, the just take a trip permits I acquired were for court-ordered visitation with my son and were provided begrudgingly. Probation is a punishment and also, as such, they aren't exceptionally keen on offering you a reprieve on that punishment for you to take a vacation.

EDIT: typo fixes

You're asking 2 concerns here:

Do I should ask permission before travelling outside the jurisdiction?

What happens if I simply don't ask for permission, and what type of expedition might I get amethod with?

Rule of thumb: always ask permission while on probation. Your probation officer would certainly much choose having actually to answer a question prefer that, then have to get a warrant issued for your arrest bereason you're left the jurisdiction without permission. You need to ask permission from your probation officer, and also then abide by whatever before rules they provide you. You're on probation - you can't just up and leave.

As for the second question, no-one right here is silly sufficient to tell you how or what you can "obtain away" through - you're on probation. The Court is giving you a chance to get out of jail on the basis of seeming choose a dependable person. Breaking the rules is a wonderful way to shed that priviledge.

If you're on probation, the idea is that you don't simply disshow up. You recognize they deserve to do a random inspect of the residency you're meant to be at, right? If you're missing for a prolonged period, you're a fugitive and also you will be going to prison once uncovered. You might also be required to inspect in via the probation officer eextremely so often, which would put a damper on travel.

You ask your probation officer, "exactly how carry out I gain permission to take a short trip?" and also then execute what they say.

(You must click "reply" under the comment you're replying to, otherwise that perboy can't see that you've replied.)

Ask your probation officer.

Consider that being on probation for a year and not being able to take a trip is a hell of a lot much better than being in jail for a year and not being able to leave the framework, and not being able to acquire ameans from Brutus your cellmate. Consider it an opportunity and also don't f**k it up!
