  1. Yes, you can transfer her supervision to Florida. You can also make a motion to the sentencing judge for early termination of probation


  2. You have to speak to probation about this.

    The above answer, and any follow up comments or emails is for informational purposes only and not meant as legal advice.


  3. Information regarding the New York State Probation Interstate Compact can be found at the link provided below.

  4. Transferring misd probation used to be state to state specific. But recent changes have now made transferring probation especially difficult if not impossible. Felony probation is the only transferable situation in today's climate. But her best bet is to discuss with probation submitting an early termination to the court since she has been on probation for 18 months I assume without any issues. If she violated in any way that will hamper that request most likely. Or consult/hire an attorney to help with the motion to the court if probation says no or it's not up to them.


  5. It is possible, but difficult. If she has been successful on probation thus far (meaning no violations) she may be able to be released early. She should discuss her options with her probation officer.
