You can file a Motion to Modify your Sentence to Unsupervised Probation for the remainder. You need all costs paid perfectly, and the PO or DA can oppose it if they want. These Motions are usually granted if not immediately, then later. I recommend you have a competent attorney file it and...Read more »

Don’t lie for him. The felony on his record is not your fault. It’s not your job to ‘get it off his record.’ You could benefit from some private legal consultation. Even if you are now on good terms, there is no real excuse for striking a woman, much less one who is 8 months pregnant.
He went to jail for one night I bailed him out that morning he got charged for domestic violence . It is his first offense but he is on informal probation right now. Will he be serving serious time?

One route is to file an injunction to keep him away from you. Also, if he has an open criminal case, the judge more likely than not, have requested him to be away from you, your house, your place of employment, etc.
You can drop the charges all you want to; however, the State will still think there is or was a case. It could take you 3 to 4 court cases to completely get them dropped if you back off. Don't file charges if you don't mean them.
You committed a very serious violent crime. No employer is going to want to take the risks associated with your employment. You really need to take actions to prove that you have or are in the process of rehabilitating yourself.
