Abby Lee Miller may be in the middle of fighting federal fraud charges, but that hasn't stopped her from going on vacation.

RadarOnline.com has learned that the 49-year-old Dance Moms star asked the court on Feb. 29 to grant her permission to travel internationally.

According to the legal papers exclusively obtained by Radar, Miller is getting ready to head overseas for work on March 12 and will remain there until April 1.

"Ms. Miller's employment presently requires her to travel internationally during March 2016," the papers said.

Miller will be traveling to Norway on March 14; Scotland March 15 and 16; England March 17 to 22; Gibraltar March 23 to 25; and France March 27 to 31.

On top of getting approved to travel abroad, the court also gave Miller's counsel an additional 30 days to file her pretrial motions.

The motion clarifies that the Miller's lawyers are "engaged in discussions concerning potential discover materials" and are trying to reach an agreement.

"Our pretrial motions are now due on March 31," her attorney Robert J. Ridge told Radar.

This makes the fourth time Miller has been granted an extension on the deadline.

As Radar previously reported, Miller plead "not guilty" to two counts of bankruptcy fraud, five counts of concealment of bankruptcy assets, and 13 counts of making false bankruptcy declarations.

In 2010, Miller filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, and is now accused of hiding over $755,000 in earnings from her Lifetime show.

If found guilty, Miller could face up to five years in prison and $5 million in fines.
