Actually yes.. im on probation in Georgia but live in another state..i simply call an answering machine once a week and give them my name and SS# that's it. its pretty freakin sweet. unfortunately i also have to pay fines but that's besides the point. all you have to do is talk with your probation officer... it might have to do with what you're on probation for..mines a minor traffic violation

No. Probation is not an offense, and it is not something you must answer to.

I am Relocating to another state while on probation how do I inform my probation officer?

Do NOT -repeat- do NOT move to another state without first getting permission to move from the court which sentenced you to probation. If the court even grants you the permission the probation agency of the state to which you want to move has to agree to accept you for supervision. Don't forget you have been found guilty and you have been sentenced - sentenced to probation - a lenient sentence - but a sentence nonetheless. You are not free to move about, and come and go, as you wish without first getting the permission of the sentencing court.

If you move to another state while on probation what would happen?

To start, this must be approved by your probation officer. If your probation officer will not approve it you can not leave. If your probation officer will approve it, they will need to request that the probation department of another state accept you for probation supervision in their state. Your current probation officer will have to request this through a process called "Interstate Compact." If and when another state accepts you, you will be assigned a new probation officer in your new state. There are potential complications if you are approved as well. The judge from the state that convicted you has little power to enforce the terms of your probation agreement. That means the probation department in the state you move to can impose any conditions that they consider to be appropriate. For example, if a Judge in the state that convicted you did not require a treatment program for your offense the new states probation department may or they may make your live miserable in other ways by imposing restrictions that make it difficult do do almost anything at all. When they impose these restrictions there is little you can do about it because they will not take orders from your home state judge since it is out of their jurisdiction. If you are considering moving out of state while on probation and without approval, I would highly advise against that. This would be a violation of your probation and would likely get you arrested.

Can you move to another state if on probation?

If on probation can you go on vacation to another state?

Yes with your probation officer's permission. Most states allow probation officers to issue a travel permit that would allow a probationer to leave their state for a vacation.

Does a federal probation officer care if a convicted felon goes to another state to visit another convicted felon?

It depends on the conditions of probation. Often, a condition of probation is that the felon can't leave the state without permission. Further, another frequent condition of probation is that the felon can't associate with other felons. If you have a document that outlines the conditions of your probation, read it carefully for these conditions. If you don't have the document in question (and I know this probably isn't what you want to hear), ask your probation officer if this is permissible. It's the only way to know for sure.
