What to do if a legal collection agency has asked me to confer on a discovery plan and discuss settlement?

Question Details: My unemployment situation has not changed from the last time I spoke with the agency. My situation may soon change, but my top priority when I become employed, is saving my house. I told the agency that priority and that the debt settlement will happen after the house is settled. What are my options in dealing with the agency, as it is apparent they are seeking court action?
