Can Terms of Your Probation be Modified?
Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure 27.3 provides that a Defendant may request that the court modify any condition or regulation of his/her probation.
Rule 27.3 Modification and clarification of conditions and regulations.
A probation officer or other person designated by the court may modify or clarify any regulation which he or she has imposed. The court may modify any condition imposed and any regulation imposed by a probation officer, or other person designated by the court, after notice has been provided to the prosecutor and the defendant of proceedings, in which the victim has the right to notice pursuant to Rule 27.10. A probationer, probation officer, the State, or other person designated by the court, at any time prior to absolute discharge, may request the court to modify or clarify any condition or regulation. The court may, where appropriate, hold a hearing on any such request. A written copy of any modification or clarification shall be given to the probationer.

Many people have paid their debt, have done well on probation, yet are stuck with awful terms of probation that may serve no benefit to themselves or society.

Let Mr. Litwak litigate to modify the terms of your probation.
Can Your Probation be Terminated Early?
Arizona Rules of Criminal Procedure Rule 27.4 provides that a Defendant may request that the court terminate probation early.
Rule 27.4 Early Termination of Probation
At any time during the term of probation, the court may terminate probation and discharge the probationer as provided by law after: Giving notice to the State, the probationer, the probation department, and the victim who has the right to notice under Rule 27.10; and Considering an investigation report. The court may terminate probation and discharge probationer on the motion of probationer. Upon any request for termination, the probation department must prepare and file an investigative report describing the probationer’s compliance with conditions and regulations and recommending either for or against a request to modify.
A probation officer will often see someone as nothing but a case number. Let the Litwak Law Group show them, and the court, that you are more than a case number. You may have paid your debt to society and done everything you can to warrant early termination of probation, yet the probation officer may not give you the time or care to see how truly well you have done for yourself and those around you. Let the Litwak Law Group advocate and tell your story to the Court, to show that you are more than just a case number.
