Hello and thank you for allowing me to address your legal question.

Debt consolidation companies are absolutely powerless from a legal perspective. Regardless of whether a lawsuit has been filed or not, the creditor is under no obligation to work with the company. The only reason the creditor would do so is to try to get something out of the debtor, even if just a fraction of what is owed.

To that extent, the answer to your question is “no, it is not too late since the creditor can work with the consolidation company at any time if it is willing.”

If the information that I provided was helpful, please remember to ACCEPT my post as that is the only way I will receive credit and compensation for my answer. Thank you and good luck!
