Different expert here - my name is ***** ***** please allow me to provide you with information you will find helpful.

It is better to settle a debt before judgment if possible, because the you have more leverage. The fact that Discover took the time and expense to get the judgment means they think you have income or assets worth pursuing.

However,

you may be able to negotiate a discount to the debt in return for a lump sum payment or monthly installments.

My best advice is to contact Discover as soon as possible and negotiate a discount as well as an acceptable payment schedule (lump sum or installments).

Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thank you and best regards,

Barb

You did not tell me anything I did not know. This is not what I asked.
Tax Professional: Barbara, Enrolled Agent replied 1 year ago

I apologize, but there is no way for me to have knowledge of what you know or do not know.

Your question was

"Yes, can this debt be negotiated down and I will pay by Jan 25, 2017"

I provided an answer to your question. You can negotiate the amount to be paid, but you would have had greater leverage before the judgment was entered.

I will opt out so another expert can assist you.

Thank you.
