Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Are you asking whether you would be able to flee the country before your court date? Have you been arrested for this case already?

The case is on your record, but if you're not on probation or parole you'd be able to leave the country. A warrant would issue for your arrest, however, and you would likely not be able to re-enter the US.
