How do you find out when you get off probation when your probation officer will not tell you or will not give you a date or anything they just leave you hanging

At the time of your plea and sentencing, the term of your probation was put on the record. That's how long you're expected to do and the time would start to run from your sentencing date. If you don't remember how long you were ordered to be on probation, you can call the clerk of the court and he can get it from the computer.

There is sometimes a possibility that you can terminate your probation earlier, but generally that requires serving at least half of your sentence, staying out of further difficulty with the law and with probation, and owing no fines and fees. If you get to that point you can contact your lawyer and petition the judge for an early termination.
