I been on misdemeanor dui probation since Feb. 4th, 2017. I been terminated from dui class once for non-payment wich resulted in bench warrant for revocation hearing , i immediatly put myself on calendar & got reinstated, 2nd time was i requested a modification for probation to take the classes at a later date with a re-referral due to having to go out state for work for a couple months wich was granted, 3rd time was for failure to attend due to not providing leave of absence wich resulted in a bench warrant that i cleared up got revoked & reinstated & judge restarted my probation in june 2018. I been attending my classes as of last court date but got dropped again recently for me not attending & nonpayment cause i was arrested for felony DV & now posted bail. Money is tight, im the head of household the since im the only one that works. job sends me out of town alot & even out of state for contruction. I have court soon, i called first & requested modification before a warrant was issued? I only have 3 classes left & dont have to show proof of completion till june 2019. Will i be in violation or would i most likely get a re-referral under these circumstances Jailtime was completed
Long story but there's really no question presented. Good luck with this, it sounds like you're on the right track trying to get to court before a warrant issues.

With new felony domestic violence charges, the DUI probation may be the least of your worries. If you're convicted of a felony, the judge may think you're a poor candidate for probation because you've had such a hard time completing the requirements of misdemeanor probation. If the new arrest involved alcohol, that's a bad sign, too.
A stranger on the internet can't predict the outcome of your case, but you have a lot of factors working against you. It's time to lawyer up.

With a felony domestic violence charge, the VERY LEAST of your problems are for getting kicked out of your DUI program multiple times... Hire an attorney asap.
