Unfortunately for you, since the matter was a criminal matter where you were ordered to pay restitution, you cannot change the classification from criminal to civil.

Probation and restitution are two different matters. Getting off probation can be done even with unpaid restitution. I suggest that you consult with your probation officer as to what needs to be done to end your probationary status.
