Being on probation is paralyzing. Even just an arrest while on probation can serve as a probation violation which could lead to significant jail time, not to mention that many employers won’t even consider hiring you if you are on probation.
At ExpungeAmerica, we specialize in getting people off probation EARLY so they can free themselves from the chains of probation.
According to California Penal Code 1203.3 PC, the court has the authority to terminate or modify a defendant’s probation at their own discretion.
In general, the court can terminate your probation at any time. However, most judges will want you to complete at least one year of your probation, if a misdemeanor, and at least 18 months of your probation sentence if you were convicted of a felony crime.
If your probation is terminated early, most courts will reduce your felony to a misdemeanor as well as expunge your criminal record. Early terminations of probation are not typical. However, they are possible and we have gotten countless people off probation years early.
Don’t put your life on pause for years if you don’t have to! If you are on probation and want off, give us a call today!
