Unfortunately, in order to be eligible for an early termination of probation, you have to have successfully discharged all of your special obligations. That includes all probation fees, fines and, if applicable, restitution. I'm sorry not to be able to tell you what you want to hear and ask you to kindly not shoot the messenger.
