What if I still owe fines and fees?
The Georgia Secretary of State recently announced that, “[y]our felony sentence is considered completed even if you have outstanding monetary obligations other than fines, such as unpaid restitution, fees, costs, or surcharges,” and that fines imposed as a condition of your probation are “automatically cancelled upon completion of probation.”
If you are not sure if you have outstanding fines or if your sentence is complete, contact your original DCS probation office.
