It is possible for judges in two states to place someone on probation, but as you have discovered, it is logistically difficult, which is why probation is generally transferred to the state of residence. One should not be on probation in two states for one case, however. If the probation was transferred to Alabama, then the fees should have been taken care of in Alabama. The person may want to contact the probation office/officer in Alabama to see if they have a record of the probation and the fees paid there. If a judge signed an order of transfer in Georgia, the court file should have a copy of this as well. If he was represented during the original case in Georgia, the attorney who represented him should be able to help untangle the paperwork.
