Can I Get Debt Forgiveness for Student Loans?

A Sacramento bankruptcy attorney blogs about student loan debt relief.

Student loans are funded by the government and generally will not be forgiven during bankruptcy. Bankruptcy is protection from creditors but to remove student loans you will have to petition the court for a special hearing. There is no guarantee that the court will automatically discharge the loans. However, the judge at the hearing will consider special provisions such as financial hardships.

If you are able to show why the court should remove student loans debt then the judge may rule in your favor. You have to be able to clearly demonstrate how repayment of your student loan debt is impossible for you to repay without causing extreme financial difficulties.

It is the intent of bankruptcy filing to give the person a fresh start and a chance to rebuild their credit history. However, with student loans the judge usually rules in favor of the bank holder or student loan provider. The courts will allow you to present your petition but typically there is a reconstructing of the loan and any interest due and a repayment plan is instituted. If the student loan is restructured generally the payments are very low. This allows the debtor a chance to regain financial solvency.

Student Loan Debt Forgiveness Programs

A Sacramento bankruptcy attorney explains some student loan debt forgiveness options.

Student loan debt forgiveness programs are available to students who are pursuing a career in areas that have a critical shortage. For instance, students who wish to become nurses, teachers, or lawyers usually incur a lot of debt When the student graduates from their program of study they usually have to take one or more jobs, just to pay off their student loans. The government came up with a solution to the shortage problem, and the students problem that will benefit both parties. The student loan debt forgiveness program is designed to help students get out of debt quicker, and pursue their field of study, prior to graduating from college.

Students usually commit to one to five years of working in poverty stricken communities, and in turn receive valuable training, and a large decrease in their total loan obligation. Areas that are in high demand are often in areas where low income, unemployed, and disadvantaged individuals reside. These are the areas that tends to need the most assistance. Nurses are in high demand in these areas, so are doctors, lawyers, and teachers. After the student has fulfilled their commitment to serve their term, they are free to leave the area, and pursue their career somewhere else.
