If you are on probation in Florida, you cannot move without first obtaining permission from your probation officer and/or the judge who placed you on probation, depending on where you want to move.
If you want to move within the county, you will need the permission of your probation officer first.
If you are on felony probation and want to move to another county in Florida, you will need permission from the judge for your probation to be transferred.
If you are on felony probation and want to move out of the state, not only will you need permission from the judge for your probation to be transferred, but the state that you are moving to must also agree to accept you on probation and continue to supervise you.
If you are on county probation for a misdemeanor only, it is a little bit trickier. County probation means you are being supervised in that particular county only. It is possible that the judge or probation officer will allow you to live in a neighboring county and continue to report in the county that you were originally placed on probation. However, if you want to move further away while on county probation, you will need speak with an experienced lawyer about other options for probation besides traditional reporting probation.
