Student Loan Debt

Handling Student Loans In Bankruptcy

Federal and private student loans are extremely common. People take these loans out to get through college or graduate school, law school or medical school, hoping they will find a career in their field and be able to pay off their loans quickly. Due to the sheer size of these loans, even those who do find a job soon after graduating may struggle to pay off student loans while handling other financial obligations.

How To Overcome Student Loan Debt

While student loans are considered unsecured debt, they are not treated the same as other debts of this type. Generally speaking, private and federal student loans are not dischargeable in either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy. However, there are certain situations in which these loans can be discharged. Our experienced attorneys can examine your situation to determine if this is a possibility in your case.

Even if student loans are not dischargeable, your other debt may be. By eliminating other debt, such as credit card debt or other unsecured debt, you may be able to free up income that you can use to pay off your student loan debt. We take care to review all options.
