No. Civil lawsuits and judgments have no bearing on your probation status and cannot result in a violation.

As a general rule, no, civil actions do not impact criminal probation. But look at the terms of your probation. If you were ordered to pay the debt as a condition of your probation, failure to pay the debt may be a violation. You need to have a lawyer look at the actual terms of your probation before anyone can give you a good answer.

No, unless restitution was also made a part of your disposition on the criminal matter. If that is the case, you can be violated, and you will probably be dealing with central collections.
