Can I Discharge Student Loan Debt In Bankruptcy?

Student loan debt is not dischargeable in bankruptcy unless you can show that you are disabled and unable to repay the debt. Few people are able to meet the criteria to have their student loans discharged. However, bankruptcy may still help you deal with the debt in the following ways:

  • By discharging other types of debt in bankruptcy, you may be able to keep up on student loan payments.
  • Student loan arrearages can be placed in a Chapter 13 repayment plan and paid off over a three- to five-year period.

If a student loan debt collector has violated your rights under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, our lawyers may be able to file a lawsuit against the collector. In this case, we may be able to solve your student loan debt problem without filing bankruptcy.
