    Have dad ask his criminal defense lawyer.

    It is theoretically possible to transfer probation to another state, with the approval of both states.

    It is also very possible your dad's Idaho probation officer is unwilling to release him.

    There is also the issue of "will Oregon accept him"

    Which may well be "NO."

    First of all, this is the wrong place to post your question. This forum is for technical problems dealing with the website.

    As for the probation transfer, where do you live? Does your dad have any family in Oregon? If so, it will be easier for him to transfer. He'll still have to go through his Probation Officer to transfer, but the Interstate Compact is pretty clear that transfers can get approved easily if there is a family member in the receiving state. If he doesn't have family in OR, the state of OR or the local probation officer can refuse to accept him for transfer.

    Your father needs to convince the PO that it would be beneficial for him to transfer. How much longer does your dad have on probation?

    Yes, that is true.

    Yes i live in oregon, and his job would be about 30 min away from me. He has a year left.
    So what you are saying is that there is no law that says you can not transfer your probation out side of Idaho..it just has to be approved.

    Right, there is no law that says a transfer is not allowed. However, there is also no law that says transfers must be approved.
