What if you pay your probation off but still get sent to see judge for violation

Then you talk to the judge about the alleged violation in question, which would presumable be a violation other than failure to pay.

This answer is intended to be taken as general information and not as specific legal advice. You should always consult a qualified attorney and make him familiar with all the relevant facts in order to get proper legal advice. Every case is different, and they must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. David N. Smith 812 W. 11th Street, Suite 201 Austin TX 78701 (512) 457-0100


I assume, from your tag, that this is a DWI probation. It'll depend on what your violation is. If it's something alcohol or drug related, that's a bigger issue than if you have 10 community service hours left. You need an attorney to handle your revocation hearing. You may be facing incarceration.

You would then be in violation for reason(s) other than monetary. Common possibilities include dirty/positive UAs, picking up a new case, or failure to report.

If you're still reporting to your PO, they should know and should have warned you about the violation.
