Ok, i'm getting sued by a legit law practice that buys old debts for pennies on the dollar and takes each person to court. sucks for me. The issue is I don't have any problem repaying this- I was in a bad place at the time, and now i'm in a better one- BUT $2k of the $4k bill is fees... the court date is scheduled for the 28th of this month (in a different jursidiction then where I live) and I would like to keep this out of court. I spoke to this attorney before about repaying but he demanded 3 payments of 1200 within 2 months or something- which is a bit steep. 400 a month- sure. but 1200 every 3 weeks? Not so much.
I'm wondering what I can do?
Should I talk to this attorney and try to reason with him?
Should I go to court? I don't want to!!
Also, I've never requested validation from this gentlemen, but he sent me over his "validation" by sending a signed affadavit that this debt was his... is that enough? How is that proving anything?
UGH! This is scary and frustrating and i don't know what to do!
