Can I get my sons probation moved? 3 Answers as of April 11, 2011My son lives with his father, however he is now 17. He got into some trouble and is on deferred adjudication in another county. My son would like to come live with me. How do I get his probation moved? Is it entirely up to his probation officer?

Yes, probation can be moved per se: To be clear, you do not move the actual probation, however, the county where your son is doing probation can ask the county where you live to follow up and handle the probation. This is called "courtesy" probation. This is accomplished by asking the probation department where your son reports now if he can transfer and report in the county where you live and they will make the arrangements.
