The probationer has to be in good compliance with probation to transfer his probation to another state and owe no fees or fines. As that ccondition appears to be met, the easiest way to transfer your probation to another state would be to seek a mandatory transfer via the Interstate Compact. That's the agreement which regulates and provides for the transfer of probationers and parolees from one state to another.The probationer would also need to have a valid plan for supervision in Florida: family and a place to stay in the receiving state, and a job which would provide him with a lawful means of support. Once he has this, he can ask his PO to fill out the paperwork for a mandatory transfer and the PO will have to get this started for him. He cannot move there first and obtain the formal transfer later. Until his transfer is approved he would have to remain in Tennessee.
On the receiving end however, once Florida gets his application, the other state has an opportunity (45 days) to check out that his plan is valid. Unless they disapprove of the plan, they cannot deny him the transfer. You can find the information about the Interstate Compact here by clicking on the link. The transfer rules and regs begin on page 23.
