It is unlikely that you will be able to get supervised probation transferred, because it simply will not be financially worthwhile for either CO or the other state. However, it is quite likely that you can seek to have the Court either modify it to an unsupervised probation or to have it simply continued to be supervised by CO and simply have the treatment that you do in CT report it to CO as you attend.
It can happen one of two ways. Either you continued to be monitored by Co probation while you live in Connecticut or supervision is transferred. The first happens frequently and the second much less so. You can ask the court for permission to move and see what the court would like to do.
Because this is a 2nd offense, you qualify to have your probation transferred under the Interstate Compact. Also, due to this being a 2nd offense, probation is mandatory, so it is highly unlikely that the Judge will terminate probation or even move to unsupervised. If you want a transfer, that can be done by speaking to your probation officer and having him/her start the paperwork and transfer process. This takes quite a bit of time since probation officer's do everything on their own time. You may also have to pay a fee to initiate the process of an interstate compact transfer, but the fee is fairly minimal.
