Yes, you can.

You do first need to obtain an order from the judge granting your permission to complete the community service hours out of state.

However, this should not be too difficult to have approved.

Your attorney will just need to draft a motion explaining the reason why, and the details of the community service work you'll be doing, and you should be able to have this approved by the judge.

You want to make sure this is done before beginning the community service hours, to ensure that you'll receive credit for your time.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions about this. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
