Well it depends why the immigration hold is there. If he has prior offenses then the result of this one may not matter. However, the criminal offense is normally resolved prior to deportation.

Given the circumstance of his firing, and your ability to provide written documentation of your transaction, it is unlikely this case will get filed in criminal court.

The most important thing to do is pay as much as you can, make an effort. You can't violate your probation for failing to make a payment that you don't have. That is not a "willful" violation.

See if you can have the court fines converted to a civil issue at the end of probation if you are still in arrears.
