I am on probation and missed a court date. I now have a warrant and my end date for probation is nearing. I still have some of my fees that need to be paid and have to do the counseling.

Should I get a new court date and ask for some more time to complete or should I complete everything then go back to court. Thank you in advance for your comments!!!

Level 3 dependent and can't get to an AA or another like meeting.
I've completed everything the court has ordered me to complete years ago. I've found it impossible to get to an AA meeting or any other meeting of the soft since I am in a rural town without much support. I have a one year old and a second son on the way which requires their father to take work off for appointments resulting in us loosing days of work we can't afford. The only option I have is a one on one counseling service I am able to walk to, is this an option? I'm not sure if my words makes a difference, but I have been sober for 2 years now , back in school and believe that my original evaluation misrepresented my relationship with alcohol.
