probation officer sent in paper work april 5th to see if i could get off probation early
Typically, this can be done before a Judge. You should retain an attorney to bring the case into court and file a motion or a request to terminate probation, assuming you have completed all of the requirements under the probation. That's the fastest way to get an answer. Usually, it should not take more than two months.
You will need to file a motion first with the court. Then you will need to have a hearing for a judge to hear your motion let you off probation early. You can do it yourself or hire an attorney to do it.

I agree with the other attorneys. Once you file your motion and get a hearing date, you usually get an answer at the hearing.
