It may be possible to offer a little less, but that really depends on what creditors you are dealing with and what type of recovery your creditors would received in a bankruptcy.
Now realistically if there is any wiggle room it is likely small as most creditors are requiring you to pay approx. 1/3 of the debt and make payments over a 60 month term. The best way to know is to meet with a local trustee and they will be able to tell you if there is any wiggle room. If not, and if you are in a position where you can’t afford approx. 1/3 of the debt you may be forced to look at a bankruptcy.
