i verified the date with the probation officer and he said the first week of september i should receive paperwork stating that i am off.but the wife and i want to move back out of state asap closer to her parents before her due date which my end date will give us exactly 2 months if moved close to that date. so hopefully we dont have to wait for the first week of september. i also have the paperwork that has my probation expiration date on it. that i signed at probation start just found them. i mean after the expiration date it shouldnt be a problem am i right. i am assuming that the county probation office has no control over me after the expiration date
I would recommend that you thoroughly review the terms of your probation with your probationer officer and the criminal defense attorney who represented you on the underlying case. It is likely that you will be able to work out a resolution with you probation officer if there have been no violations up until this point.
Todd A. Spodek is a New York criminal defense attorney.
If there have been no extensions (as a result of agreements or violations), then once your probation is expired the P.O. no longer has any power over you. You will then be free to move where you wish, when you wish. Of course, it is important that you are certain that your probation is closed before you do anything that might be construed as a violation of probation.
As my colleague above has mentioned -- if you have a positive track record with your P.O. you may be able to begin your moving process early. Again, do not take any steps contrary to the rules of supervision without the permission (in writing) of your P.O. or until after your supervision is terminated.
