When Can Student Loans Be Discharged?

You may have heard that student loans are one of the hardest kinds of debt to eliminate. This is true for many people, with at least two major exceptions. Does either of these describe your situation?

  • If through some extraordinary difficulty, such as a catastrophic injury or incurable disease, you have become unable to repay your student loans, they may be dischargeable. You will need to demonstrate to the bankruptcy court that repaying your student loans would place undue hardship on you or your dependents.
  • If you are able to make student loan payments but have fallen into arrears, you may be able to restructure all your debt load, including your unpaid and future student loan payments, into an affordable monthly amount by filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Debt restructuring through Chapter 13 will likely mean reducing or eliminating burdensome interest rates, late payment fees and other penalties.

Have you looked at debt consolidation schemes and determined your student loan payments stand in the way of any debt relief alternative? Bankruptcy may be the way, and it is worth your while to find out.
