  1. New York probation would have to approve and Texas would have to agree to supervise you.

  2. NY probation would have to approve which they will not do u less Texas agrees to supervise. If they still won't, you may have to seek the Courtr to order it.


  3. You need to get permission from probation in whatever county you are serving the sentence, and Texas would have to agree to accept the transfer.


  4. First it depends it you are on NYS misdemeanor or felony probation?

    Misdemeanor probation does NOT transfer.

    Felony probation can if the other state accepts and NYS agrees to it.
