    The short answer is yes. However, this kind of deal often goes bad. Your best bet is to hire an attorney to manage this situation. There are different types of immunity from prosecution that can be offered and many conditions usually attach. You may provide a bunch of information only to learn that the deal is off.. Consult a local attorney.

    You will need to contact the clerk of court to determine if you can go into collections court and make small payments. For a free consultation, call my office at 407-426-5757. Be careful not to start paying without first determining if some of the fines come from issues that can be dismissed. We need more information to completely answer the question.

    We need to know the particulars of the deal. Specifically with regard to the adjudication. It may be a good deal, but I think that the state is lacking evidence if they are going to make such a deal. They may not have enough evidence to prove the case. Be careful.

    Unfortunately, The State Attorney does have discretion. Your testimony is a key part of their evidence. They must believe that the charges cannot be proven without you. The defendant has the right to confront the witnesses against him. That is why you have to be there in person. Remember that you have rights as a victim under Florida's Victims' Rights Act. You can even have an attorney represent you to make sure you and your wishes are properly represented to the court.

    What counts for the court is an overnight stay. You have an argument that your proposal as asked in the question is correct. However, the judge is not likely to agree. You may want to agree that the weekend starts Friday night and ends Sunday night, but I suggest that the plan be clarified to avoid the argument.

    There are several things to do that will move the case along. You can file a motion for temporary relief, request and set mediation, and take ex's deposition. You need an experienced attorney to get your case before a Judge as soon as possible. Feel free to contact our firm for a free consultation.
