I have 3 months left of probation,do I have to pay the rest of the 3 months of the money I pay my probation every month before the judge will let me go?Also does getting off happen automatically or how long before I am free? Do I have to wait for for any papers and how long before I can travel?
In order to "get off early", you must (usually through an attorney though you could attempt to do it yourself) file a motion in writing asking to early terminate your probation. Most judges tend to want you to have completed at least half of your total probation time before they'd consider letting you off early, and they want you to have finished all the requirements (i.e. community service, classes, etc) as well as have paid off the court costs or any restitution. However, DO NOT pay off probation costs early as those costs are simply for the cost of supervising you on probation. While it wouldn't surprise me if some counties may make you pay the entire term, you should only be obligated to pay the months you were being supervised. So as long as you are CURRENT on probation payments, and paid up on all other costs, and have had no violations of probation during that time, your chances are pretty good the judge will early terminate you.
Once you have successfully completed one-half of your probation, you can move to have it terminated early. It's best to have an attorney do that for you and follow the advice of that attorney.
