He will have mandatory court dates, where he will need to be in court. Other than those dates, your son is free to live wherever he wants to live.

He may live out-of-state while the matter is pending. He should have a local attorney representing him, however.

No, he cannot leave the state and no, a lawyer cannot handle the case without him present.

    It depends on the terms of his bond. Hire an attorney.

    You can have the attorney handle it but with felony cases they usually want the defendant there for each court appearance. ?Also you will need the court's permission for him to be able to leave the state. ?If it is to come live with you and he doesn't have a history of not showing up to court then it is likely to be approved.
