Yes, they will likely have you come back after the DV case is completed. Otherwise, you haven't really violated your Probation yet.

Good luck.

Typically the probation violation court will wait a see what happens before they act...assuming they know about your probation violation. The standard to prove a probation violation is much lower than to prove a criminal case. You should definitely consult a good attorney.
