I’m keeping tight-lipped on the details I’m willing to reveal in public, but long story short they’ve agreed to follow the guidelines of the “30% rule” in Illinois, where you just pay the money you owe and the loan gets restarted.
The bad news is that the price of this is $2.2k. That’s not at all much an issue, provided they don’t have some absolutely insane due date for me to have the cash. Sell a bike, sell a phone, get paid from work...bam, there’s their money. Or if they’re willing to wait a little longer, my tax refund would take care of the whole thing.
This is a gargantuan weight off my shoulders. ♥
