Learn More About Early Termination of Probation


Early probation is something many people facing jail time seek. Some believe that it can be tough to get early probation, but if done right, it may not be as difficult as you might think. Specific to New Jersey law, there are a few different ways you might be able to get early probation if being faced with jail time, and with the help of an experienced attorney, there’s a good chance of getting an earlier probation.

Generally, one of the main ways to be considered for early probation is to have all your fines paid off, completed all necessary work, and completed all court ordered classes and treatment. If you have not completed everything that must be done, there is likely no chance of getting early probation.

Next, it is important to make sure you have been complying with all the terms of your sentence. Other factors like age, criminal history, nature of the offense, etc. will be considered as well, but they are not always things you can directly control, so it is important to be on good terms when possible. The court is also likely to consider the length of time you’ve already been on probation for, the reason for requesting an early termination, your behavior while on probation, and even some other factors.

There are two components that will help your chances of being released early. One of them is having a Probation Officer. The other one is to have a great attorney. By having an attorney who is well aware of the laws of probation, there is a good chance you will be able to see an early termination. It is not guaranteed by any means, but it does certainly boost your chances.
