My boyfriend has his first DWI in San Antonio, Texas. He is on probation until April, 2017, unless the judge extends it? He has been paying the fees and seeing his P.O. I have a few recruiters in S. Korea that might hire me to teach English. (A few agencies contacted me and I am seeking the best one for us.) My boyfriend would like to come also to teach. Are there any ways to get my boyfriend off probation asap? He told me before that he can't leave the county but I really want him to be with me to go to S. Korea to teach. If you have any questions, please ask. Any helpful tips would be great. Thank you.
He will, absolute, positively, NOT get off of probation early.
This answer is provided as a public service and as a general response to a general question, it is not meant, and should not be relied upon as specific legal advice, nor does it create an attorney-client relationship.

If he has complied with all his probation requirements the court may let him report by mail. This would be the only alternative and it is up to the judge. An attorney would be needed to go talk to the judge. Most experienced criminal defense lawyers like myself will offer you a free consultation
The judge won't extend your boyfriend's probation if he stays current on all of his fees, fines, and court costs, and follows all the terms and conditions of his probation, including reporting in person as requested by his probation officer. He is going to need an attorney to approach the judge about alternative reporting and being able to move, maybe even to file a motion and have a hearing; though hopefully there won't be a hearing, but it's possible. Depends on the court and the judge. Also, if it's a legitimate job opportunity, enhancing what he does here, rather than just taking a job to be with his girlfriend (no offense intended) which would be differently viewed if you were married, e.g. Good Luck!
