A: It depends on the terms of your probation, what offense you are on probation for but I would contact the attorney you had on your case and consult with them.

A: If your Probation requires a Knox County residence, then you might make a Motion to Modify your Probation. Obey all requests of the Probation Officer now, but serve him a copy of the Motion you file at Court. Be prepared to explain to the Court your need.
