My son is in Florida and is finishing probation in one month but, has fines to pay, classes to pay for, ADAP and attend AA. He is without a license and it down there alone. He is trying to get back up here for family and support so he can meet his fines and obligations here. Is this possible? He is continually digging a financial hole for himself and needs to leave florida.
Any transfer of state probation would first require the receiving state to agree. It is not automatic. There is no right to transfer, it's a privilege. In my experience as a defense attorney, most of the time the answer is "no." Probation departments are reluctant to take on another state's burden. But, it can't hurt to ask. He should get a Florida lawyer to navigate this.
