Hi Jacustomer,

If you are not on probation or parole and your warrant is no longer active, you have the right to leave the country, so long as the judge didn't tell forbid you to or your bondsman -- if applicable -- has made it one of his conditions that you stick around.

As long as you are back by your court date, you can freely exit and enter the US with an open criminal matter.
