Is there any way to avoid jail time due to a violation on probation for falling behind on payments on class B misdemeanor DWI?

Question Details: I was recently stopped for a traffic violation and a police officer let me know I had a warrant for a violation on my probation which is in hunt county. I had this transfered to tarrant county and have taken my classes and finished my community service hours. I also have gone to all po meetings. So the only thing it could be is falling behind on payments. I am due to be off on the 17th of august. The only reason I fell behind is because I had to take my maternity leave and was not gettin paid. I can't go to jail I don't want to loose my children. Is there any way to avoid jail time?
