Can You Leave Town While Out on Bail?

Whether you travel for work or a family situation arises, it is important to make sure you have permission to leave the city or state when you are out on bail. By using bail to leave the jail early you agree to show up at court for your hearing. Depending on the circumstances of your arrest, leaving the city or state may not be an option until after you’ve attended the hearing.

You have to get written permission to leave the city or state
. Leaving without authorization can land you in more trouble. Discuss the situation with the court to get granted permission to leave. Contact your bail bondsman as well to ensure that leaving the area does not break the contract you signed with them.

Even with permission to travel, make sure it will not conflict with your scheduled court date. Missing the hearing will result in your bail being revoked and you will have to return to jail. It can also result in fines and additional penalties being added to your current charges. If leaving the area could result in missing your court date, it’s better to wait and make different arrangements if possible so you don’t have to worry about the consequences of skipping bail.
