12/28/13: Is it possible to get off probation in Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte earlier than my scheduled termination date?

Early termination of your probation is a possibility in Fort Myers, Naples and Port Charlotte when you are currently on probation and would like your probation to be over earlier than the scheduled end date.  

The only people who are not eligible for early termination of their probation are those who specifically agreed at the time of sentencing that they would not be entitled to an early termination of their probation (this is rare and is not the case for the vast majority of people who are currently on probation). In order to have your probation terminated early a lawyer from Viacava & Cantor can file a motion for early termination of your probation and schedule a hearing time for the motion to be heard in front of the Judge. The Judge will look to various factors when deciding whether or not to grant the motion for early termination of your probation including:

  • Whether you have been violated during your probationary term
  • The severity of the crime for which you have been put on probation
  • Your criminal record
  • Whether your probation officer has an objection to early termination of your probation
  • Whether you have completed all of the required components of your probationary term

The lawyers from Viacava & Cantor have extensive experience filing and arguing early termination of probation motions and will be happy to discuss your case with you and to advise you as to the likelihood of success on an early termination of probation motion. If you are on probation in Fort Myers, Naples, or Port Charlotte and would like your probation to be terminated earlier than your scheduled termination date contact a lawyer from Viacava & Cantor for a free consultation today.
