Yes, the person on probation can file a motion to transfer his probation to another state. The motion will need to be heard infront of the Judge, who placed this person on probation. In the motion, it should state the reason, that the probation is being asked to be transferred ( i.e. job, family, school, etc). Another option may be to ask the court, to allow mail in probation. This may be another good option since the person on probation has demonstrated that they can comply with all the terms of the conditions, that were placed on them. If probation is transferred, the Texas probation office, will contact probation in the State where this person is moving. It would be best to have an address in the new State, so there is some indication of where the person will be located and a probation office can be selected that is close to them.
