California and Florida are both members of the Interstate Commission of Adult Offender Supervision ICAOS. This means you will be able to apply for transfer of your probation from California to Florida under the Interstate Compact

You would need to qualify for a transfer. Here is the criteria you would have to meet:

“To initially qualify for transfer of supervision under the ICAOS, the offender must:

(1) be subject to some form of community supervision, including supervision by a court, paroling authority, probation authority, treatment authority or anyone or agency acting in such a capacity or under contract to provide supervision services; and

(2) have committed a covered offense as defined by the rules.

Eligibility for Transfer includes:

-Sentence or release from incarceration with community-based supervision and the offender is

- A felon, or misdemeanant whose sentence includes one year or more of supervision and the underlying offense includes one or more of following:

(1) an offense in which a person has incurred direct or threatened physical or psychological harm;

(2) an offense that involves the use or possession of a firearm;

(3) a second or subsequent misdemeanor offense of driving while impaired by drugs or alcohol;

(4) a sexual offense that requires the offender to register as a sex offender in the sending state.

You would have to request this transfer through you probation officer in California. The probation officer would have to make an online application to the ICAOF.

Here is the website for the ICAOS http://www.interstatecompact.org/.

You should qualify for this transfer especially since you live in Florida. Speak with the probation officer.

If you have any further questions, I will be happy to help you. If you are satisfied with my answers, I ask that you rate my service. Good luck!
