Yes, you're entitled to a revocation hearing. It's usually a few weeks after the petition to revoke is filed. Worst case scenario is that the judge revokes the balance of your probation time and has you serve the rest of the term of probation in jail.

What is a time limit date? The maximum date you can be kept in jail before your probation officer must have a hearing? Use your time in jail wisely. Get educated, and learn how to write. Yes, the probation officer is the only one that can schedule a date. So, if you have a poor relationship with your probation officer, then you need to learn how to get along with people AND get educated.

How much time you get depends on what you did to violate your probation and a lot of other factors. It can sometimes take several months to get a hearing. It varies from court to court.

Anytime you are placed on probation and the probation officer files a petition to revoke your probation as a result of a violation of your conditions of probation, you can be revoked up to the amount of time remaining on probation. The time remaining on probation tolls (stops running) at the time the probation officer files the petition alleging a violation of probation.
