My name is ***** ***** I would be happy to provide general information regarding your question.
What this appears to be is one of the conditions of bond. A standard condition of bond is that the individual is not to leave the state until the resolution of his or her case.
However, Courts are flexible with this condition as long as their is good reason for flexibility (usually work and home related).
In situations like this, the individual must go in before the judge as soon as feasible and inform the judge of the situation (i.e., working out of state or living out of state) and ask the Court for permission to travel.
This can be done before the first court appearance. It is done by having the case "motioned up," which means requesting that the case be placed on the docket to be heard by the judge.
