    Typically, plea discussions are not admissible as evidence. Oftentimes, when an individual has several charges pending, the prosecutor will offer to nolle prosse some charges in exchange for a plea on others. I would recommend speaking to an attorney who is licensed in the state in which your charges are pending to further discuss the specifics of your case. Diona M. Potter

    If she cannot afford an attorney, I would recommend contacting legal aid to see if they can offer any assistance or direction. Diona M. Potter

    Since the child lives in California, I would recommend contacting an attorney who practices family law in California as California law will likely govern this situation. In Georgia, a parent can petition for a modification of child support if there is a material change in the financial circumstances of a party or the financial needs of the child. Diona M.
