    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Typically there are no travel restrictions on misdemeanor probation.
    However, if you have a DUI conviction it makes traveling to certain countries, like Canada difficult.
    I would contact an immigration attorney.

    Answered . You have 2 issues. The first issue is whether you PO will let you go because you will need permission to leave the state. Second issue is whether Mexico will let you in. If your PO agrees, then you should contact the US consulate in Mexico to ask if you will be permitted to enter.

    Lawyers agree

    Answered . That depends on the conditions of your probation and on whether Mexico will admit you. Canada would not ordinarily let you in without a waiver.

    I'm adding an Immigration tag to your question to bring it to the attention of lawyers who might know Mexico's policies.

    If any answer on AVVO helps you, mine or someone else’s, please mark it as "helpful" or "best answer" to help AVVO know which answers to show others.
    Thank you.
