What do I need to do or have to transfer my parole from Louisiana to Pennsylvania? My parole officer agreed to the transfer. What do I have to do for the receiving state to accept the transfer?

I’m originally from Pennsylvania but got
arrested for simple burglary. I was
sentenced to 2 years supervised
probation with a 2 year suspended
sentence. All my family is from
Pennsylvania. I have children there. I
have a job lined up and a residence as
to where I’ll stay. She’s my girlfriend.
What do I need to do to help my case for
the receiving state to accept my
transfer. I’m also on supervised
probation there as well.

Assuming that certain conditions are met, a parolee is allowed to transfer their probation from one state to another. However their PO will have to approve. What you need to do is to ask what your state's requirments are for moving and then get them in writing. You can then show your PO that you have met them. The stronger the case that you can present regarding the move the better. For example, you can inform them that you have family there, a place to live, a job lined up, etc...and be sure to have proof.  This should make things easier but if not, then you'll probably have to stay where you are. Additionally, you should be aware that transferring probation from one state to another also requires the agreement of the receiving state. This means that the state that the state that you want to move to must agree to accept you for probation there.
