ProbationTop

When a parent has denied parenting time or failed to pay child support, the court may place that parent on community supervision (probation). While on community supervision, this office will monitor the parent's compliance with the court's order. The parent is ordered to report to the Domestic Relations Office each month and demonstrate compliance with the order.

In addition, the Office may require that the parent submit to random drug testing, attend a parenting class, complete substance abuse intervention or seek employment assistance. If that parent fails to comply with any condition of community supervision, a motion to revoke may be filed.
