If you have a conviction of one or more California criminal charges, you are likely on either formal or informal probation as a result of a misdemeanor of felony conviction. The good news is, you don’t have to wait around forever for your probationary period to end. An experienced attorney can make a motion under PC 1203.3 to get an early termination of probation in California.
What If I am On Felony Probation?
Felony probation can be “formal” probation or “informal” probation. Formal probation means you are assigned a probation officer, are subject to drug tests, searches of your home, and so forth. Informal probation means less supervision, but if you violate any laws or don’t comply with an order of the court during that probationary period, you are subject to some serious consequences.
Whether you are on formal or informal probation, and whether you are on misdemeanor or felony probation, a skilled attorney can bring a motion under 1203.3 to get your probation in California terminated early.
How Can I Get an Early Termination of Probation in California?
Early termination of probation in California is discretionary with the judge. However, your chances of getting your motion granted are increased if the following factors are in place:
- you have completed at least half of your probationary period
- you have not violated your probation in any significant way (e.g. picked up new charges)
- you have no other pending criminal charges
- you have complied with all other terms of your probation, such as paying fines and attending classes
