    Go see a BK attorney for legal advice. Do not try and handle this yourself or respond without an attorney first.

    If you’re planning on filing for bankruptcy, why pay the bill now? Contact a local bankruptcy attorney, they’ll need to see your last 6 months of pay stubs, assets, list of all your debts, last 4 years of taxes and once reviewed be able to tell you what you qualify for. If you are being sued and they have a court date on the letter, appear and set up a payment arrangement with the judge if you haven’t file bk yet. You can include this debt in the bk filing. You will need to come up with the retainer fee any attorney is charging. Some do payments, some in a chapter 13 filing take payments. Most with a chapter 7 like the payments paid upfront as they have to submit the payments to the courts as this is usually filed and over in about 4 months. Good legal counsel is the first place you need to start. Good Luck!
