Q: Do bail Bond conditions from your state apply to other states if you travel?
I've been on bail bond now for a year and the case has yet to be filed (Criminal information / Boating While Intoxicated) in Texas. I've since moved to Florida and changed all my registrations and Driver's license to Florida. Do the bond conditions from Texas still apply to me in Florida? Would it show up if pulled over? I did notify the court before moving and there was no issue.
A: Your open case could show up on a police check of your ID if you get pulled over and might subject you to some scrutiny-particularly a DUI arrest. More likely if you're on probation. Simply notifying the court of your change of address may be insufficient and should require a signed Order Permitting Travel from the Judge presiding over your case. Your bonding company should give their consent to travel out of state as part of the Order permitting travel.
