  1. If you can not work it out with the probation officer, you may take it up with the judge.


  2. You will probably need to file a Motion to Amend the Terms and Conditions of Probation with the court.


  3. I agree with the other attorneys here. Get some documentation of your schedule and try and work it out with your PO. Otherwise fiile a motion with the judge.


  4. One option is to explain your work situation to your PO (which they should know since you have to report any traveling to them) and request a Smart Start Mobile Unit. That way you can take the machine with you wherever your travels take you.
