A petition for Early Termination of Probation pursuant to Penal Code section 1203.3 is used when one has completed all terms of probation except for the actual period of probation. Judge’s are normally reluctant to grant an early probation termination petition, but it can be done. Many factors are considered by a judge in making that determination, and can include things like: (1) how long you have been on probation, (2) how much longer the remaining probation period is, (3) whether you had any issues while on probation, (4) reasons for seeking to terminate probation early, and others. The more support that can be provided for terminating probation early, the more likely someone will be to have their petition granted.
Its always difficult to make an accurate estimate of the likelihood of success without a consultation. Track record for the case probation should be considered, as well as the reasons for seeking early termination – as these two things are weighed most heavily by judges.
