You most likely plead guilty and in addition to many fines, penalties, community service and incarceration, you’ve probably been sentenced to probation.
You have turned your life around and perhaps want to travel or relocate. Maybe you’d like to pursue a career abroad but cannot leave the state due to your probation & reporting requirements.

We answer these questions daily.
We have successfully filed motions terminating probation on behalf of our clients. We are proud to share important information below.
Tired of being tied to the ol’ ball & chain?
Let’s Start With The Most Important Question:
Does NJ Law Allow For Early Termination Of Probation?
Under N.J.S.A. 2C:45-2, a defendant may seek a court order terminating probation early.Our firm will contact our client’s probation officer to confirm that our client has complied with all conditions of probation. We even go a step further and draft a memorandum listing all of the reasons why our client’s probationary term should be terminated early. In our experience, our clients have made extremely good use of their time and have finished college, earned vocational degrees, have become parents, and have risen in the ranks of their industry.For example, many clients have gone from entry level employees all the way up to general managers. We incorporate these achievements in our correspondence to our client’s probation officers.
Is The Application To
Terminate Probation In Expensive?
Is It A Lengthy Process?
The process is not lengthy, nor complicated, as long as the client cooperates. After contacting our client’s probation officer and get their blessing, the process involves six steps.
First, we obtain all sentencing and probationary documents for our client. Second, we need to meet with our client and interview him or her.
Third, we draft the motion and show it to our client for their approval.
Fourth, we file our motion with the appropriate court.
Fifth, we wait to see if there is an objection from the county prosecutor’s office.
Sixth, we file and prepare for our hearing before a Superior Court judge.
What Things Will The Court Consider ?
Presentation is everything!
Our law firm will put “your” best foot forward. We will have done the groundwork beforehand so that we are super prepared on the day of court. We will do everything we can to get your probation officer on our side. We will show that you’ve paid all of your fines and show that you have been extremely productive during your term of probation.
Our duty is to show the court that granting your early termination from probation is in everyone’s best interest
Will Terminating Probation Benefit Me?
We will answer this question with a question.
“Does anyone like to live with limited freedom?”
Once a defendant is sentenced to probation, he or she may violate probation for having a few alcoholic beverages during an innocent family function. A violation of probation always complicates things. People want to get on with their lives without the feeling that they are always looking over their shoulder.
Early Termination from Probation restores people’s freedom so they can lead a normal life. They can travel and do many things without feeling tied to the duty to report.
It is important to terminate probation early so that a defendant can clean their record through an expungement.
Will The Judge Grant My Motion
For Early Termination From Probation?
As we all know, there are no guarantees in life. But, you will never know unless you ask.
Think about this. How many times in life were you pleasantly surprised about the outcome of something which you never believed could happen? Probation is a serious relationship and all of our clients very much look forward to their release date. We love helping our clients terminate their probation early. Instead of waiting another 20 months to fulfill all of their reporting requirements, clients joyfully close this chapter in their life and get on with their life.
