How long is you probation for, and how long have you been on it?
You can make that motion, but it is not likely to be granted. You've not hot the halfway point yet, and you'll be appearing for a violation hearing. If, after the hearing you have been found to not be in violation, and you've completed over half you're probation, you can petition the court to terminate your probation.
You were convicted of a felony, and this is a way for the state to monitor you, but also to ensure compliance with child support.
I don't think the chances of termination at this hearing are very good, but you can find the form for moving for termination here:https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://courts.mi.gov/administration/scao/forms/courtforms/probation/mc245.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwihs-KbjsvJAhWFORoKHVu_CVAQFggaMAA&usg=AFQjCNFRYJoj-R73V3ETVu970bjm40E63w&sig2=B4qD8mxOHPdbtcrcUSGigw
Well, you'll need to explain your disability during the hearing, explain your inability to pay, and the plan you have to get back to compliance with the court's orders.
If you notified probation as soon as you became disabled and explained your inability to pay, that will help.
That's good. So, your argument should be that compliance was impossible, despite your best efforts.
I would bring all documents from your medical file, and draft a simple timeline of when you were diagnosed, and when you notified your probation officer, etc., so that the judge can easily follow the sequence of events. That will help.
Let me know of you have any additional questions.
