If you have been placed on probation or community control in the Orlando area, there is a chance you may not be able to do some or all of the things the court has ordered. Many times it is difficult to meet the payment amounts or deadlines imposed by the court. If you have been ordered to undergo drug treatment, it is possible that you may not be able to afford the fees of the provider ordered by the court. Or maybe the court has ordered residential treatment but your insurance only covers outpatient.
Whatever your particular circumstance, if you do not perform the conditions of your probation exactly the way the court has ordered you can be violated and face a long jail sentence. If you are unable to meet the demands of your probation, it is extremely important that you try to modify your sentence so that you can met the conditions and avoid a violation.
Modification means that you ask the court to to change your probation or community control to allow you to meet the demands of the court. This means asking the court to extend deadlines, lower payments or make substitutions for drug treatment or counseling services. If you successfully modify your probation, you can avoid a violation. This means you will not be arrested and receive another charge on your record. Even if you have been violated, it is sometimes possible to negotiate a modification to avoid a conviction.
