My name has been removed from my state registry, and now I want to move out of state. Will I have to register in my new home if I move?

We wish we could say you can get on with your life and put this behind you, but unfortunately you cannot. You may very well be required to register in another state, depending on which state you choose, even though you have been removed where you currently live. Completion of a registration requirement in one state is not binding on any other state. An extreme example would be Alabama, which requires registration for life regardless of when the person was convicted, or for what sexual offense.
