In my last blog post I discussed the types of probation and how to set yourself up for probation success. What if, despite your best intentions, you didn't succeed though? You somehow ended up violating the terms of your probation. You feel panic setting in and start to wonder how bad this really is? Will your probation be revoked? Will there be other consequences as well?
You were just offered probation instead of the jail time you were dreading. You're thrilled! You totally dodged a bullet! But what are the terms of your probation? Do you understand them? Can you abide by them? What type of probation did you get and is it the right one for you?
