Thank you for your response.
Because the order to show cause can result in you being found guilty of a probation violation and being sent to jail, you MOST DEFINATELY should obtain an attorney and you should request the public defender
If a person has not paid off court ordered restitution before the end of probation, the court can hold you in violation of your probation and put you in jail for up to the entire length of your original sentence or they have the option upon you showing proof of financial impossibility to pay the restitution to waive the remainder due and this is what your attorney will have to argue for and will have to prove by producing your detailed financial records. This restitution is part of your sentence and if you do not complete it, then they can also extend your probation and make you continue paying in lieu of putting you in jail, so you really should have an attorney to fight to prove that it is financially impossible for you to repay the money and ask the court to waive or reduce the money due in lieu of jail and many times, given your age and situation the judges will agree to modify the amount due to something more affordable and will extend your probation, that is the common action the courts will take.
