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

I am afraid that when someone violates the terms of their probation, a court appearance is mandatory. The only way out of that appearance would be hiring an attorney and getting the attorney to seek permission of the court to waive your appearance, which is something that is very rarely done and only with good cause such as proof of your physical inability to make it to court.

You need to start I am afraid by hiring an attorney and he would have to seek permission of the court to get your appearance waved and if he cannot do so (as I said it is very rarely done) I am sorry to say that you will have to appear and explain how you did not really violate your probation.

Thank you so much for using I truly aim to please you as a customer, but please keep in mind that I do not know what you already know or don't know, or with what you need help, unless you tell me. If I did not answer the question you thought you were asking, please respond with the specific question you wanted answered.
