    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Yes, you can move to another state. Just make sure you stay in compliance with all other terms of your probation, such as making your monthly payments on your fines etc.

    Good luck,

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . As long as you give the Clerk your new address and do not have any other terms of probation that you must do in CA, you may move. However, if you have a CA class or community service or any other term, the court must grant you permission to do those in another state. If you owe a fine, you may send that in from anywhere.

    Answered . As long as you don't have additional requirements (ie. an alcohol or anger management program) to fulfill in California as part of your informal probation, YES, you can move to a different state.
