Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The only one who can reduce your time is the the judge. In order to seek early release, you have to file a motion in court for early termination and you have to present evidence of good conduct and compliance with all terms and no violations. If you can present such evidence, then the court has power to shorten your time.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
