    Michael’s Answer

    It depends if the court requires a hearing or not. Some Judges require a hearing in court to hear the matter. This may take a little time to get on the court's docket. Others may review the matter in chambers and issue a written order.

    Either way, I would suggest your attorney contact both Probation and the State to see if they can get an agreement before it goes before the Judge.
