Thank you for contacting with your question. I will provide legal information related to your question.


Yes you can contact the person or company suing you and ask for a settlement so you do not have to go to court. Usually they are willing to take a settlement offer.

sorry one more question. I think there asking for 1347.24 do you think it could be more or less
Expert:  legaleagle replied 6 years ago.
You may be able to get a settlement for less, but since they have already filed the lawsuit they are more likely not to reduce the amount. If you can just pay what is owed and not have to pay the attorney or court fees that they have incurred, that would be a good deal.
