Customer Question
Hello My student loan went into...
Hello
My student loan went into litigation 10 years ago and I've been paying on time. I've been in the military for 11 years now and the law firm is now asking me for a copy of my military orders fo proof that I'm in the military. I asked them what did they need it for and was told it was to help me but every time but how? I ask them if I can pay a lump sum to settle they tell me no. Is there something fishy going on with them?

Since this went to litigation, it sounds to me as if at some point it wasn't paid on time. You are under no obligation to provide them with a copy of your military orders. And with respect to a lump sum, it is perfectly acceptable for you to offer that to them, though they are under no obligation to Excel it is perfectly acceptable for you to offer that to them, though they are under no obligation to accept.

I was in bootcamp when it went into litigation and I tried to explain that to them.
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Why did they ask for a copy of my orders? Are they trying to make me pay more?
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 1 year ago

My apologies, the last sentence should have read they are not no one under no obligation to accept

It doesn't sound as though they are trying to make you pay more though.

they are effectively serving in the capacity of collections agency. It's just that they are a law firm too

Oh ok..can I get my case out of litigations since I had no idea that it was going to litigation. I was in bootcamp for 6 months
Lawyer: Olivia Kent, Attorney replied 1 year ago
You can. Whoever you owe the money to, you can contact them and offer to pay them in full directly. Generally they accept. The reason why I say in full is it increases the likelihood is that they will take payment. Otherwise they often say they can't do anything about it because it has gone to collections.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
