There are a lot of good reasons to ask the court to terminate your probation early in California.

The most common reason is that ending probation makes it possible to expunge the conviction. California expungement law (California Penal Code 1203.4) will not allow a person to expunge a record if they are still on probation.

Another common reason to end probation early is because many employers will not hire a person who is still serving a sentence, which probation is. In this competitive job market, being on probation can be a huge disadvantage.

How To Terminate Probation Early In California

California Penal Code section 1203.3 allows a court to terminate probation at any time. In theory, this means minutes after probation begins. The reality is that probation termination is difficult, but far from impossible until at least 50 percent of the probation sentence has been served.

In evaluating whether to terminate probation early, a judge will consider many things, including how much probation has been served, signs of rehabilitation that have occurred while the person was on probation, the amount of hardship that is being caused by being on probation, the likelihood that the person will reoffend, the persons overall criminal record and many other factors.

California Probation Termination Process

Take the first steps to a better life now by doing our free online evaluation and see if you are eligible to have your probation terminated and record expunged.

Terminating probation typically requires the filing of a motion with the court, service of process upon the DA and a hearing before a judge. Unlike expungement cases, there are no filing fees for probation termination.

The amount of time it takes to complete a probation termination varies greatly by court. In some courts, probation termination can be done in a couple of weeks, other courts take multiple months.

CA Probation Termination Requirements

In order to file for early termination of probation you must have paid all fines and court costs and completed all the court-ordered classes and requirements. Additionally, our law firm suggests (though it is not required) that you complete at least half of the probation term before applying so that your chance of success is higher.

Our firm specializes in this area of law and we terminate people's probation terms for various reasons (including, but not limited to, probation is preventing you from a job, education, or other activity that would benefit you and society). Once probation is terminated, we can ask the court to expunge the conviction. Many courts will allow us to do the expungement at the same hearing as the probation termination.

We start working on your probation termination case the same day you sign up. We have successfully helped terminate more than 200 probation sentences in California and we would love to help you.

Our flat fee includes all costs. We will conduct the research, file the necessary motions, respond to written or oral opposition from the District attorney, and send one of our attorneys to court to argue the case in front of the judge.
