Do I have to go to the state I’m currently on probation to get it transferred to the state I reside in? I’m on probation in Tennessee but I live in Ga. I didn’t know I was on probation in Tennessee. I want to get the probation transferred to Georgia but I’m being told I must travel to Tennessee to initiate the transfer and it could take anywhere from two weeks to 1 month. I don’t have the means to travel like that and I’ll lose my job. Do I have to go to Tennessee just to get my probation transferred down to Georgia?
Yes you or someone on your behalf would have to go to Tennessee to address the probation. You may want to hire a local Tennessee attorney that can probably handle a lot on your behalf without you present. But you would have to address this in Tennessee at least to get a transfer. The other attorney answers are great as well.
