How do I get my Probation Transferred from State to State using the Interstate Compact?
The interstate compact is an agreement that all 50 States subscribe to and which governs the transfer of probation from State to State. You can access the Interstate Compact’s website at the following URL: www.interstatecompact.org/
For the interstate transfer of probation you not only need your Judge’s permission but you also must meet the criteria for transfer pursuant to the interstate compact on adult offender probation and then the “target State” still has to accept your request for transfer of probation.
Not all case are transferable and not all probationers will be approved for transfer, so best you know before the fact and before you are stuck.
If your transfer is denied then you have a few options: 1) You can try to petition either the Interstate Compact or the target State for a waiver; 2) You can petition your FL Judge to early terminate (ET) your probation; 3) You can petition your FL Judge to convert you to “administrative” (i.e. “write-in” or “call-in” non-supervisory) probation; or 4) You can wait it out in sunny F-L-A.
If you have a pending criminal case that may close with a probationary sentence, and if you any idea that you wish to move to another State, then you absolutely should begin this discussion prior to closing the case and agreeing to probation.
