WHAT IS A CALIFORNIA EARLY PROBATION TERMINATION?

Simply put, a way to get your life back.

California Early Probation Termination

End your probation early.


If you are currently on formal of informal probation, you may be able to terminate it early – allowing you to quickly get your life back and expunge your case.

A California early probation termination is a legal procedure that utilizes California Penal Code section 1203.3. This allows you to terminate your probation early before you have completed the court-ordered or prosecutor-negotiated months or years of probation. The law is meant to reward those who who want to get their life back.

This service can be paired with a California expungement (whether it is a DUI, misdemeanor or felony) in certain counties.

    HOW DO I KNOW IF I QUALIFY FOR CALIFORNIA EARLY PROBATION TERMINATION?

    Sign up online today or contact our office now to speak with a California early probation termination lawyer today.


    You qualify for a California early probation termination as long as your offense is not in one of the prohibited categories itemized in California Penal Code Section 1203.3, and:

    • You have a compelling reason that makes it in the interest of justice to grant a probation termination, and
    • You did not go to prison

    Please note that if your offense is within one of the disqualifying offenses, we may still be able to file for an expungement under constitutional grounds.

    Additionally, a California Early Probation Termination is very unlikely to be granted if you have not completed your sentence other than completing your time on probation. This means that you must have:

    • Paid your fines (but not necessarily restitution if it is a large amount), and
    • Completed all court ordered classes and programs
    • Also, if you are serving a sentence for another offense, it will be more difficult to terminate probation on any other case.

    Have confidence when applying for new jobs or promotions.


    Feel confident in a job interview that your past is truly behind you.

    Please note that if a Judge believes that you deserve it, courts sometimes commute fines and fees. A commutation is when the court forgives you of ever having to pay them. Also certain types of fines, such as fines paid to probation, can be transferred into a civil judgment. These fines do not have to be paid before an early probation termination or expungement can be granted.


    A few important comments regarding eligibility for an early probation termination:

    While it is not a hard requirement, we usually do not advise petitioning the Court to terminate your probation early until at least half of your probationary term has been completed. So, if you were sentenced to a 3-year probationary term, we advise waiting until you have completed at least a year and half of that term. Again, though, this is not a hard and fast rule and the Court may still grant the petition if there is a compelling reason in the Interests of Justice.

    Additionally, a California probation termination is available even if you violated your probation. However, unless the violation is minor, or unless you have a really strong reason for needing to end your probation early, a violation could lead to a probation termination denial.

    Shea M. Randall

    Founding Attorney

    The entire process for a California early probation termination takes anywhere from several weeks to a few months, depending on the case load involved in the court in which you must file. This is why we expedite your filing within 24-48 hours to get it submitted to the court as quickly as possible.

    Once filed, the prosecutor will be given time to respond. After the prosecutor responds, it then goes before the judge. We will represent you at all required hearings and you will not be required to attend.

    Before attempting a petition for early probation termination, we recommend first having an analysis done to assess the strength of your case. An early probation termination is up to the judge’s discretion and can depend on many factors. It is imperative, therefore, that you weigh your options and only move forward if you are confident in the strength of your case.

    WHAT CAN I EXPECT ONCE I OBTAIN CALIFORNIA EARLY PROBATION TERMINATION?

    Your Life Back

    Serving a probationary term can create a lot of heartache and anxiety. Additionally, since most early probation terminations can be bundled with either a felony or misdemeanor expungement, terminating your probation and expunging your underlying record can provide immense relief.

    Once your past underlying offense is expunged, you can say truthfully that you were not convicted. However, there are three narrow circumstances when your conviction must be disclosed:

    1. If asked on application or questionnaire for public office
    2. When getting a license from a local or state agency, and
    3. When contracting with the California State Lottery Commission

    In addition, if your underlying conviction is a felony it may also be eligible for a reduction to a misdemeanor. This can restore gun rights or simply reclassify the offense so that it less onerous. All of these can be filed simultaneously and if granted can provide incredible relief from your criminal past, allowing you to reclaim your life and move on from the past. If reducing your felony to misdemeanor interests you, see if you are eligible here

    Please note, however, that if your underlying offense involved a violation of the Vehicle Code it can still be considered by the DMV in revoking or suspending your driver’s license.
