I got a DUI in November in Maryland, and have the opportunity to move to Arizona with my father, and the state I am originally from. Will transferring my once a month check in at my probation office be difficult? I have already completed my court ordered classes, and dropped down to a once a month check in.

Often these transfers are routine, and your probation agent should be able to help you.

DUI / DWI Attorney
Your Probation Agent should be able to either transfer the probation to Arizona or allow you to complete probation by reporting by telephone and/or mail. If for some reason your Probation Agent does not cooperate, your attorney should be able to get it done. Hopefully he/she filed a Motion for Reconsideration within 90 days of your sentencing (and asked the Court to hold it Sub Curia, or without ruling on it) until asked to do so.
Criminal Defense Attorney
You may need to file a motion to authorize your moving to another state. Don't delay. If you are in compliance, could be granted. Moving without court permission is a violation.
