Can I get rid of student loans in bankruptcy?

Clients come to Geraci Law for multiple reasons.   They want ANSWERS!   They want answers they can rely on.  Geraci Law has over 60 attorneys who understand every aspect of student loans in bankruptcy and how to discharge student loans OUTSIDE of bankruptcy!

How to get rid of student loans OUTSIDE of bankruptcy:  If you are on Social Security Disability, apply for an “administrative discharge”. You will have to show thesGSL Imagee things:

  1. You must have a federally insured student loan. This doesn’t work on private loans or tuition.
  2. You must be on Social Security Disability: permanently disabled for any kind of work
  3. You can’t have any other assets, such as a pension or 401K.

So, you don’t need our help if you are totally disabled, and Social Security says so, and you have no assets.

If you are NOT totally disabled for any kind of work, permanently, you cannot eliminate your student loans in bankruptcy:  you should look at income based repayment, or getting rid of your other debt.  Here’s how:

How to get rid of student loans USING Bankruptcy:  Get rid of the other debt so you can pay down your non-dischargeable student loans!

GSLIt’s very hard to get a discharge of student loans in either Chapter 7 or 13 bankruptcy.  Almost impossible.  But here’s what Geraci Law did for this client who came in with overwhelming medical bills and student loans.  We filed Chapter 7 to discharge her medical debt and a repossession, so she can now pay her student loans!  She is working, she can’t discharge them, but she got rid of all her debt BUT the student loans. She is making good progress on them now that she has no other debt.  Geraci Law gets a 5 star review!
