A credit card debt was not paid because I lost my job. The

a credit card debt was not paid because I lost my job. The debt was sold to a third party and I tried to negotiate with them but they wanted more money than I could afford at one time. They did not serve me with documents properly but yet managed to put a lien on my house. I checked with the county recorder and they said it did not appear to have a lien. They have now sent me a Notice of levy for execution (money judgment). It is being handled by a law firm. the amount is just over 4500. If I could pay I would but I still don't have a job. Is it wise to call them and try to negotiate with them over the phone? What happens to the judgment? this notice says " that the total amount due under the writ less partial satisfactions plus daily interest from the date of the writ until the date of levy".

I have been negotiating settlement in a lawsuit

I have been negotiating settlement in a lawsuit for several months, of which I am the defendant. After several counters, I received a proposal from the plaintiff's attorney requesting I agree to a judgment of $60K with a settlement of $20K with $100 payments over 200 months. The Plaintiff will agree not to abstract the judgment or attempt to collect the judgment as long as I make regular settlement payments. Once $20K is paid, then the judgment will be released. This is a lawsuit that I have been told I would win if I am able to afford an attorney. I had an attorney in the start to assist with the Answer and Interrogatories, but as time progressed, I could not afford and have been advised by both my former attorney and also the Plaintiff's attorney that this Plaintiff is determined to win out of spite and regardless of how much it costs him he has instructed his attorney to pull out all stops to win this case which will make it very lengthy and expensive. My former attorney said it would cost me another $10K to fight this case just to get the suit off my back or over possibly over $20K to countersue which is what I really wish I could do. I was left with the choice of either spend $10K to fight it or offer the $10K as a settlement to end this case. The plaintiff's attorney has also informed me that he would not have taken the case if it weren't for who he is representing (a millionaire). He is the second attorney representing the Plaintiff as the first attorney withdrew. I actually like the Plaintiff's attorney as I feel he has been honest and candid with off-the-record advice about my options, his client's intentions, and suggested actions. He advised me to settle. He told me that if I don't settle, we will be forced to do depositions and go to jury trial, and he will have no choice but to tear me shreds on the stand. He said he will leave me in a cornered position to where I will not know how to answer which will ultimately allow him to win a full judgment plus attorney fees which will exceed $100K. My offer was quickly rejected last week by the Plaintiff who threatened to see me in court in front of a jury and go the "expensive all-in route". But then his attorney proposed the above fore mentioned judgment/settlement agreement. As much as it makes me sick to agree to a judgment of $60K which is the salary the Plaintiff paid me (which I earned and already filed taxes on), I guess I need to agree to close this case. Is this a normal agreement to accept a judgment in a large amount while agreeing to settle in paying payments to a smaller amount? If I pay $100 per month until the $20K is paid, will interest automatically accumulate on that? And would I then file a 1099 to the Plaintiff at the end of the year for paying him (basically repayment of salary he paid me)?
