I have an ajudication withheld on grand theft and will need to travel out of the country for family business in a few months. My probation officer hasn't really told me how to go about doing this. He said I should go before the judge and ask for his permission and let him know I own a home here so I will be returning. The judge is in another county about 3 hours away. Do I need to go to the judge? Do I need to fill out a "permission slip"? Any information would be great because I don't know where to start. Thanks!
