Intrastate Transfers

Transfer of probation cases between counties within the State of Illinois can be arranged with prior approval from the offender’s probation officer.  There is a process that must be followed and the offender has to prove to the probation officer that their life would improve as a result of the move.  The offender must also be made aware that the county they are moving to, can request modifications to their order and that additional fees may be imposed as a result of the move.

Interstate Transfers

The transfer of probation to another state, even for a resident to return to their home state after court is not a guarantee.  With the implementation of the newest Interstate Compact for Probation and Parole a few years ago, rule changes dramatically restricted the movement of offenders across state lines.   In a nutshell, all felony offenses are transferable and only certain misdemeanors meet criteria.  Each offender must make application to the receiving state and in most cases, reporting instructions must be received before an offender can travel to that state.  Sex offenders who are residents of a state other than Illinois, are not allowed to travel immediately under any circumstances, and must be prepared to remain in Illinois for up to five business days following application for approval to travel.  This rule applies even if the current offense is not a sex offense.  All applicants for transfer must pay a $125 fee to complete the application process.
