    This is not legal advice. You should always discuss the specifics of your issue in person with an attorney. Be... more

    Answered . Most creditors are not interested in the reasons why the debtor cannot pay. Instead, they are interested in collecting money. You can try to negotiate a settlement agreement either with or without a lawyer. I strongly recommend the former because lawyers have negotiating skills that most non-lawyers lack. The remaining option, of course, is to do nothing and just hope they don't sue you. I do not recommend that option.

    Good luck.
