Whether you’re able to travel out of state depends on the terms of your individual bond. If you are, in fact, allowed to travel outside the state, you’ll have to return for any court dates you have scheduled.
If you’re making travel plans, it’s a good idea to check in with your bail bondsman to go over the terms of your bond. If you’re out on state bond, chances are you might be able to travel within the country. However, if you’re out on federal bond, the travel terms may be a little stricter. Again, the best thing to do is check with your bail bondsman.
If you need to leave the state or country for an emergency like a death in the family, contact your bail bondsman immediately. Honesty is the best policy, especially in situations like these. However, keep in mind that a phone call will not override your signed bond contract—make sure to get any permission or exceptions to your agreement in writing directly from your bail bondsman. Reputable bail bond agencies will be willing to work with you within certain parameters, providing you’re honest with them.
