I have paid approx $8k to debt settlement company. they have resolved none of my debts with creditors.
i am now being sued by discover for the amount owed plus their legal fees. the case has not gone to hearing nor does it appear i have a lawyer for the case.
i am trying to decide if i should hire a lawyer or resolve all of my debts via settlement on my own or go on a payment plan.
i am trying to decide whether i should continue to pay the settlement company because if i lapse on even one payment they will keep all my money and void the contract.
i was told not to talk to my creditors and have not made any payments in over a year.
i do not want to file bankruptcy and am looking for the next best steps for my situation so that i may start the road to credit recovery.
