What are the laws about leaving a jurisdiction while on probation?

I need to go to a funeral in another state.

It depends if your probation states that you have to stay within the State that you received the probation in. If you're unsure call your probation officer. He should be able to tell you if you can go or not. You should be able to go as long as you come back right away.

It is possible to get special permission for a specified event, especially the funeral of a family member. Speak to your court or your parole officer.

The details of your probation dictate your ability to travel outside the state. Discuss it with your attorney or the authority that granted probation.

Don't ever leave your jurisdiction without discussing it and getting permission from your probation officer. And even if you get it make sure it is in writing and give a copy to your attorney and take one with you also in case you get stopped. And make sure you get back in the time frame given.

Typically, this requires permission from your probation officer. You should also get this in writing in case you were to be pulled over, etc.
