We have been helping clients with student loan debt for more than 60 years, and can effectively and efficiently help find a viable solution that gets you financially secure and give your peace of mind, knowing your financial issues are taken care of.
Will Bankruptcy Clear Student Loan Debt?
If you are considering filing for bankruptcy to clear your student loan debt, you need to consider the following:
- A Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing may enable you to essentially defer loans and pay only interest for a period of three to five years.
- Although filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy will not eliminate student loan debt, its effectiveness in discharging other debts such as credit card balances may free up the money you need to catch up and keep up.
- An array of federal student loan repayment plans may be available, enabling you to restructure loans and get terms you can manage.
In all but extreme cases involving serious medical problems or other hardship, it is currently not possible to discharge student loans in bankruptcy. However, the best step you can take if they are a problem for you is to meet with one of our student loan debt attorneys who will explain all your debt relief options.
