Hi , I served 12months in federal prison and received 2 years of federal probation . Out of the 2 years i had to do 1 years on house arrest with an Ankle monitor and curfew . Only allowed to go to work and come home ... all my time was monitored . I am finally done with 13 months of probation . Next month will be 14 months the done already out of my 24 months of probation handed to me . I have never violated , and have always complied with my probation rules and regulations .... I have not been in trouble since released from jail .... always tested negative in my drug test .... even though I have never done drugs. I have maintained a steady job since my released and have paid my taxes .... also all up to date and on time payments on my children's child support . Have proff from NYC child support Payment center . Took a course passed a city test . and obtained a certificate for work . For a better promotion at work . Can I ask for an early probation termination ? Ask my attorney to File a motion ? Ask my probation officer if she approves ? Also what kind of additional paperwork or additional things I should do that would help me and my motion look well prepared Thanks ...
A lawyer can make a motion for this. I just did one in the Southern District. It helps if your Probation Officer will support it (or not oppose).

It sounds like you have enough done correctly that you can ask. I would discuss it with your PO first before spending money on a lawyer to make the motion.
