I am on unsupervised probation for a DUI, first offense. Would a 209A restraining order extension prompt a surrender?
This is all in Massachusetts. The original 209A was granted a month before the DUI arraignment and subsequent Continuation without a Finding (CWOF) disposition through the 24D DUI First Offender program. A month before that, a domestic assault and battery (misdemeanor) charge against me was dismissed without prejudice. The same person who filed the 209A complaint, my ex girlfriend, was the alleged victim in that charge. The 209A extension would occur in the middle of my probation and I am concerned that it may prompt probation to surrender me as in violation of probation. I did not attend the original 209A hearing.
It will not violate you.

Patch.com has my name published for a DUI incident. We agreed to plea with a CWOF.
Patch says they'll remove my name from their website after the sentence has been served or if I've been found not guilty. Can I ask for them to remove it now? I'm not familiar with the legal system and it's termanologies but I really don't want my name to be there anymore.
When you agree to a plea for a CWOF, you are actually pleading guilty and admitting to the facts necessary to do so....
