    The probation officer and judge could transfer your probation but it is very rarely granted. You should retain a lawyer to ask the probation officer and his supervisor first before you go to court as it will require their recommendation in most cases.

    There are strict requirements in order to move from the State where you are on probation. Normally, the probation must be transferred from one state to the other and the state where you are moving must agree to accept you. Sometimes, if the end of probation is near, the court will consider converting the formal probation to informal probation where there are no reporting requirements and you would be free to move.

    You have to ask your probation agent and the court for permission. They will probably give the permission.

    You dont say what you are on probation for or what the terms of your probation are. You best talk with your PO.
