Interesting question. The state will force you to get married . . . well, for how long. What if you want to get divorced? You were told this in Florida or by a Probation official in one of the counties in and around Augusta - Richmond, Columbia, Burke? So he moves to GA after release pursuant to the court order that says he shall do so. What Florida violate him for that? Would Georgia? Georgia would not have a case on him if they don't accept him. That places a burden on your fiancee to do something that is impossible for him to accomplish: make Georgia probation accept him. But the sentence should be examined carefully and any attachments or conditions. Legal guidance is necessary.

Georgia usually had no problem accepting probationers, you just need to figure out where you live and call the felony probation office there to see what they need. Your problem seems to lie with the Florida probation officer, who is looking at this as if you did not include this in the plea, so it would be in their discretion. If it was part of the sentence, it would not be in the probation officer's discretion. Being in the plea bargain is one thing, but it would not bind probation unless that language was also in the sentence signed by the Judge. Sometimes, not all of the details are included. You need to find out and show it to probation if it is in the sentence. If not, get with an attorney in Florida to get the sentence amended or corrected to force the probation officer's hand.
