Student Loan Debt
Tens of millions of Americans have student loan debt. The most recent statistics show that about one-sixth of the population older than age 18 carries federal student loans, totaling about $1.5 trillion. Additionally, private student loans not backed by the government come to about $119 billion.
In other words, if student loans are part of your debt situation, you are not alone.
Over the years, it has become a myth that student loans cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. The reality is that a bankruptcy court may allow for student loans to be discharged if the loans are an undue hardship to the debtor.
To prove that your student loans are an undue hardship, you need an experienced bankruptcy attorney on your side. You need someone who knows the courts and can anticipate how the courts will decide. I am that attorney, and I can help you explore every available option for resolving your debt problems through Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
As with student loan debt, a myth has arisen about tax debt — that it can’t be discharged in bankruptcy. That simply isn’t true. Certain requirements must be met, but tax debt can be eliminated, usually through Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
If you owe income taxes from three or more years ago, you may be able to have your tax debt discharged. Let me consider the specifics of your debt situation and help you seek the relief you need.
