The short answer to your questions is that he will sit in jail until he has a hearing. One way to speed up the process is to hire an attorney to negotiate with the probation officer and/or to try and get a hearing date set up ahead of time. After he deals with probation, as you know, he will have to deal with the DUI as well.

No set answer to your question. It depends upon a number of things, including which jurisdiction the VOP is in. Your post is unclear, but I assume your fiance was arrested and bonded out on the dui before his probation officer ["po"] could place a "hold" on him. If so, when your fiance turns himself in, his po may put a hold on him and make a motion to revoke his dui bond. Your fiance needs a good lawyer ASAP. The lawyer could try to negotiate a resolution before your fiance turns himself in, to minimize the amount of time he sits in jail waiting for a court hearing.
He needs a hearing on his probation violation. Get him a lawyer.
