Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Hi! I will be the professional that will be helping you today. I look forward to providing you with information to help solve your problem.
Good morning. I certainly understand your concern. Why did you miss your appointment? How long ago was it and have you tried contacting your probation officer since?
Thank you for that additional information. In a situation like this, you want to contact your probation officer at once and inform them of the situation. It is not that you missed the appointment that is the main problem, it is that you failed to contact them and let them know what is going on. They likely think you absconded and can violate you at any time. If anything, try and contact your probation officer today, by mail or phone to explain the situation and then again on Monday, if you do not hear anything. Moreover, go in person, if you are unable to set a new appointment and inform them you are coming in. People do get sick and have conflicts with work but if you do not communicate and inform them of this, they have no way of knowing.
