Q: Can an attorney cancel a hearing the morning of the hearing day? Also want make sure creditor remove off credit report.

A debt relief company has been taking money out of my account for last past year to pay My creditor monthly & at same time settle my case. If anything they hurt me more than helped. Months later I get a summon to court fr creditor filed L-suit of $8k up front or 4 months of $2k. That was bef the virus so courts were later canceled. All these months I just not been able to come up with that type of money. And creditor has now reported it to my credit file & my points went down and I cant even get a loan. The hearing is now set for this Monday 5-18. Which I still had not been able to come up with this kind of settlement money which now is $6k until today. Gods Miracle. The attorney who suppose to be helping me said Thru the debt relief company say I Ineeded to let him know by Thursday to settle for the $6k.

I not know which is best way go now.

Is it too late for me to settle to avoid court hearing Monday? Or Should I leave a message to this attorney now since no office is open now.
