    Default Consent Judgment Procedure

    My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: North Carolina

    I was recently served a summons on a $8,000 credit card debt. I answered the summons within 30 days, as required. I definitely owe this money, am not disputing it, and desire to pay it back as quickly as I possibly can.

    Lat week, I received a letter from the creditors' attorney, with an enclosed "consent judgment" form, stating that I can avoid appearing in court by agreeing to the judgment ahead of time. I also received a notice that my case is scheduled for a May 5th court date.

    My question is if I may take the liberty of attaching a "stipulation" to this consent judgment, offering the terms of a monthly payment plan that I would like to propose.

    To get to the point, my main goal is to pay back this debt by making monthly payments (at least $250 at a time), and avoid having my wages garnished or my bank account raided.

    I would like to avoid appearing in court if at all possible.

    What is my best option? Thank you for any help anyone can offer.

    If you don't want to accept the proposed judgment as-is, contact the creditor's attorney and suggest that it be amended to provide for payment in installments.
