Help with Issues Involving Probation Transfer Across State Lines

If you are on probation for a felony or certain misdemeanor crimes and want to move out of Minnesota, you must ask permission from the Minnesota Interstate Compact Office.

This may seem like an easy task, since other states have probation rules similar to Minnesota's. Interstate Compact Offices, however, are denying more transfer requests than in the past, making transferring to another state impossible for far too many individuals on probation.

Why Do You Need an Lawyer in a Probation Transfer Case?

Now, more than ever, it is important to hire an experienced Minnesota criminal defense lawyer to handle any issues that arise involving probation across state lines. Our attorneys can help you understand your options for moving out of state while on probation. We can provide knowledgeable advice regarding how to obtain a sentence that doesn't implicate the Interstate Compacts.

  • The Interstate Commission for Adult Offender Supervision (ICAOS) rules govern which probationers may move to another state for any period lasting more than 45 consecutive days.
  • If a probationer fails to get permission to move, he or she will be returned to Minnesota, sometimes via a nationwide arrest warrant.
  • There are strict requirements under the ICAOS that probationers must comply with or face denial of their transfer requests. This is true even if the request is urgent.

We can also help you understand and comply with all requirements if you are granted a transfer.
