When a defendant is on active probation, their court case is not closed. Until the case is closed, a defendant will find their travel is restricted, immigration and professional licensure paperwork will not be processed and any subsequent violation of any criminal law may result in a violation of probation.

Family or work situations can change over time, making it very difficult to complete your probation as ordered. It’s extremely important to follow the requirements of your probation. A court does have discretion to terminate probation early, but it’s not mandatory or a sure thing. We can help you in gathering and submitting the evidence needed to document why you should be off probation.

A criminal sentence can also be modified by the discretion of the judge. For example, if you have been sentenced to jail time starting on a certain date, but there is an overriding family situation that makes it a severe hardship.
