When Student Loans Contribute to Financial Distress

After working hard to improve your education, it can be frustrating to deal with massive student loan debt. Recent graduates often struggle to make ends meet, let alone pay down their loans. If your student loan debt is causing unmanageable financial hardship, it is time to talk with a bankruptcy attorney.

Generally, student loans are not dischargeable in bankruptcy. However, by filing either Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, you can free up funds, making it easier to pay your student loans. At Simon Resnik Hayes LLP, our lawyers know the bankruptcy laws from the inside out and will explore every option available to get the relief you need.

Helping You Obtain an Increased Cash Flow

While you will most likely not be able to eliminate your student loan debt, there are ways to get the debt under control. By filing Chapter 7 bankruptcy, our lawyers can help you discharge your unsecured debts, such as credit card bills and medical expenses. Because you will no longer need to pay those debts, money is freed up to focus on your student loan.

By filing Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it is possible to reduce the amount of your monthly payment to something more workable without the threat of penalty. Your student loan could also be deferred for a period of time. To learn more about your options, call our offices in Los Angeles or Sherman Oaks at 213-699-3055 or 888-368-4099 to arrange a free initial consultation.
