I am supposed to have a travel permit to leave the county I live in.
You need to get a travel permit. If you do not get a travel permit and she finds out she may file a motion to revoke your probation.,
I am not licensed in Texas, so out of respect to an attorney from there, I would defer to any answer offered by an experienced criminal defense attorney licensed there. That being said, when you re-enter the U.S., depending upon your mode of travel, customs may type in your name in a computer and see you are on probation and this can be a problem. Just get the travel permit and avoid the headache.
Get a travel permit. You do not want to violate your probation. Whatever you do do not drink while you're on probation. If you get your travel permit and you drink while you're out of town you're likely to be caught. As soon as you get back they will test you.
A travel permit is the answer to your problem. Ask your probation officer but remember the judge is in charge of your probation. If your probation officer says no, then I would go alone or with an attorney and talk with the judge. Most judges will allow you to go on vacation if you have not been a problem while on probation.
