Experienced Lawyers Helping You Solve Your Student Loan Debt Problems
Many types of debt are dischargeable in Chapter 7 bankruptcy, but student loans are not one of them. If you have other types of debt, such as credit card debt, medical bills or other unsecured debts, you can eliminate these in Chapter 7 bankruptcy — and focus on paying off your student loans as soon as possible.
“With Congress dragging its feet on student loan reform and failing to pass legislation that would provide relief to people with student loans, it’s up to you to take the bull by the horns. I can help you do that.” ‒ Attorney John Christopher Robinson
Another option is Chapter 13 bankruptcy, which reorganizes your debt into a single monthly payment plan, allowing you to catch up and bring your accounts current. After making these payments for a period of time, the remaining balance of your debt will be eliminated.
A third option is negotiation. Our lawyers can negotiate with your student loan servicer to consolidate your loans, decrease your interest rate or reduce your monthly payment to an affordable amount.
