Can I Request to Change My Court Date?

Right on our heels is Summer, a favorite time of year for people to travel. The children are on break from school and the weather cannot be beat. Travel has been planned for months and there are probably going to be some unplanned, short weekend trips ahead for relaxing at the beach or going hiking. Travel and vacations are a metaphor for freedom, but it is earned freedom. In some cases, that freedom can be taken away, by a judge’s order.

If a person is ever arrested, a judge will dictate whether or not a person can proceed with their planned vacation. In this kind of situation, the judge will first determine if the person is eligible to post bail. If the judge denies bail, the person must stay in police custody during their trial...

Can I Travel if I am Out on Bail?

If you are ever arrested, rearranging your travel plans will be one of the many things you may need to take care of, as soon as possible. We realize that you will have many things to take care of and organize at this point. Prioritizing tasks will be important here, as well as taking help from those who are offering it, like family and friends.
