Usually it is too late. You might actually get a better deal if you go through the court case anyhow. Often times if you cut a deal with them at this point they will still take you to court and you might be made to pay more than you can afford. Good luck.

Very affordabel and may even erase the debt!
Yu could also make great money sharing your success working with a Pre-Paid Legal lawyer.
