No, if you have not made the payments as ordered as restitution, even though your probation ended this obligation remains and they can actually cite you for a probation violation/contempt of court
for not making the payments as ordered. You cannot contact the judge directly, this is impermissible ex parte contact, you have to deal with the litigation unit. Unfortunately, you have to provide the information they are asking for because they are looking to either find assets they can take to satisfy the restitution or as proof that you do not have the means to make the restitution and if you do not have those means, then you need to get an attorney and seek to have the attorney file to have the restitution waived (if you cannot afford an attorney you can get a federal public defender).
