Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered

A: Assuming you are 18 years old and on adult probation, the probation officer shouldn't have to contact your mother. Provided you are not ordered to remain in your current residence, talking through this issue with the Probation Officer should result in you being able to move provided it is in the same jurisdiction and you are not moving out of state.
