Bankruptcy can help give you a clean slate to rebuild on after you’ve experienced crushing debt. One of the things that’s almost impossible to get rid of, though, are student loans. There are millions of people in the United States who carry tens of thousands, or even hundreds of thousands, of dollars in student loan debt. Their repayment may cost them as much as a mortgage payment or more and they will be repaying those loans almost until they retire. So are you just stuck with high payments and no hope?
Not at all. While student loans being discharged in bankruptcy cases are rare, it does happen, but it depends on your circumstances and the jurisdiction where your case is heard. Our San Antonio bankruptcy lawyers can help you determine if this is a possibility for you.
