What is your question for us regarding this situation?
Customer: replied 8 months ago.
is there a way to get credit as a disable obligor at this point with out having to file an appeal
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 8 months ago.
Thank you for your reply.
I am afraid only the court can grant you the reduction based on your disability and if the court has not done so, then an appeal is your next step.
