what happens if you dont have a job and cant get one and are on probabtion and you dont pay the fees.
But you show up to all the probation dates and times. but they keep threatening you with violating your probation
Paying the fines and fees is generally a violation of the conditions of probation. You could explain to the judge at the probation violation hearing why you were unable to pay the fees. I am not licensed in Tennessee so this response is for information only not legal advice, but in general, if you pay something you will have an easier time with the judge and with the probation officer than if you pay nothing.
