If you jump bail and probation in texas will they find you if you move to another state

It depends on what kind of charges and the bail. If a bench warrant was issued, they won't come out of state looking for you, but the warrant never expires and if you go back to that state, you will be arrested if stopped/pulled over, etc.


If the charge is a felony, the authorities will look for you and extradite you back to Texas if caught.

if its misdomeanor probrobation and misdomeanor bond, i forgot to put
If it is a misdemeanor, the warrant is a bench warrant and is only enforceable within the borders of the state. Thus, if you never go back, nothing should ever happen. However, the warrant never expires and if you ever go back, you will be arrested if pulled over, stopped at a road block, etc.

The warrant should not show up in another state, and you should be able to get a new license in a different state.
