Often, the extremely strict requirements of probation make obedience difficult. Unfortunately, if you make even the smallest mistake, you could be charged with violating the terms of your probation. If this happens, working with an attorney could help you get the terms of your original probation reinstated or modified slightly instead of facing additional penalties or additional restrictions.

Types of Probation Violation

Probation violation can be separated into two different categories: technical and substantive violations. A technical violation occurs if you violate one of the conditions of your probation, such as not meeting with your probation officers.

Other examples of technical violations include:

  • Not paying court fines and costs
  • Not completing a court-ordered class
  • Not passing a drug test
  • Changing your address without permission

If you commit a new crime while on probation, that is considered a substantive violation.

What Happens If I Violate Probation?

Once you violate your probation, a probation officer is given the authority to arrest you without a warrant. In some cases, a judge issues a warrant for your arrest and the court will serve you the warrant and expect you to surrender. Once a warrant is served, it is possible for an attorney to represent you at a hearing and attempt to reinstate your original probation terms or mitigate any new consequences that you might be facing.
