Holiday travel is something you planned on doing for a few months now. Your recent arrest was unexpected, a spur of the moment situation that unraveled the wrong way. Now you have to deal with the aftermath, comply with release terms, and stay out of trouble. So how will this affect your holiday travel plans?

The best case scenario is that your arrest and bail will not conflict with your holiday plans. The judge did not put any travel restrictions into play, and your court appearances occur before and after your travel period.

Holiday travel is inching closer and closer and with your loved one’s recent arrest, you may be wondering how that might affect your plans. Is your loved one allowed to travel while out on bail?

Secondly, the judge may allow travel, but impose additional restrictions. For example, if the judge allows the defendant to travel, it may be decided that he or she can only travel within the state.
