On this website, I do not always get to give good news, and this is one of these times.
Now, understand that parole has two sources of "laws." One is the court order, that governs the parole - it tells you what to to, what fines to pay, what classes to take, etc.
The second is the PO. Now, the PO is in theory supposed to simply enforce the court orders
. However, the PO often has their own requirements as well which stem out of the probation
- who to avoid, where not to go, etc. This is not unnatural. This is actually frequent.
The problem is that if you begin arguing with the PO, they can and normally will make life very hard for you. They can even violate you for something else and then have your parole taken away. Ergo, they essentially "rule" your world on parole
. I hate to say it, but it is 150% true.
Now, you can always state that she is under no need to come in to meet with the PO. And she is not. If the PO insists, you can go to Court to and get the Judge to weigh in, overriding the PO. Think of the Judge as the "capo" and the PO as the "lieutenant" here, enforcing the Judge's decision.
If this happens, the Judge overrides the PO and you continue the parole. But, you'd be getting on the PO's bad side by going over their head, and this may not bode well for you in the long run because as explained above, the PO may make your probation very tough if they want to.
So while it is possible to argue with and override the PO for a questionable demand such as the one above, it is not recommended because they can make your life very, very difficult. I know it is a tough situation. It is your choice whether or not to comply, or, to go to Court and override the PO but then have to deal with the PO's possible vengeance if they are petty...
