Can I pay the debt in full instead of going to court?

I got served, can I just pay the amount instead of having to go to court?

The collector will probably be happy to take your payment and avoid the expense of going to court. Just don't pay them unless they will send you something in writing from them stating that they are dropping the lawsuit if you pay the bill in full.
