Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.

If you have not received any probation violations and you have been complying with all of the terms of probation, then you would have to go to the Colorado court where you were convicted. You would file a motion to modify probation to ask the court, based on reports from your FL probation and/or Colorado probation officer that you report to, that you have complied with terms of the probation and supervision is no longer necessary. They typically will not consider this until you have completed at least 1/2 of your probation, so you can file now and by the time it makes it to court it will be 1/2 of your probation.
