You should hire an attorney in the Valdosta area and inquire about Diversion. That's a special program designed for first offenders and may be a chance for you to avoid having a conviction on your criminal record. It will probably cost you between $1,000 and $2000. Money well spent...See question

Why are you considering doing that? Have you considered converting to a Chapter 7? Do you have assets that you are trying to protect? I don't think you will be able to afford the Chapter 11 if you cannot fund a Chapter 13. You can convert to a Chapter 7 if you have not filed a Chapter 7 in the last 8 years. The time you've been in a 13 would have to be added to the 8 year bar.See question

Sometimes in this situation a lawyer can negotiate with probation and get everything worked out before you actually get arrested. It just depends on the jurisdiction and the probation officer. It is very important that you select an attorney who practices regularly in the court that you were sentenced in. Also, it would be best if the attorney knows the probation office which is monitoring you.See question
