As long as there are no temporary ICANN transfer blocks on the domain, you'll be able to transfer the domain to the registrar of your choice.
At times there is a 60 day lock on a domain (by ICANN) because a domain recently changed registrars or there was a change to the domain's Whois contact information. In cases like this, you may be asked to receive the domain at the current registrar. This is a normal situation and once the lock period is complete, you can then move your domain to the registrar of your choice.
