How To Get Your Student Loans Forgiven

Mar 12, 2008
As the cost of a college education escalates each year, students are starting to take a long look at whether they want to be responsible for paying back such a large debt. And unfortunately, there are very few options left for the student who realizes they cannot afford to pay back their student loan after graduation.

Towards the end of a student's college days, many find that they have taken on thousands of dollars in student loan money, that will be next to impossible to pay back. It is at that time that they begin to realize that they are on the verge of bankruptcy. They realize that even if they had several different jobs, it would be difficult to even make the minimum payments. And it is only after many sleepless nights that they consider bankruptcy.

I am sure that for most college students, filing for bankruptcy after recently graduating from college would look very bad on their credit reports. I also think that, for most students, the thought of filing bankruptcy would go against their principles of responsibility and good character. But in some cases, filing for bankruptcy may be their only option, if they truly cannot repay the loan.

Filing For Bankruptcy

The experience of filing for bankruptcy can present some challenges. It is much more than you might expect. Of course there are forms and documents to be carefully filled out. There is definitely a formal procedure to the bankruptcy process. Part of that process is to appear before the judge, who will determine if you are qualified or not, to receive bankruptcy protection.

You would obviously want to do some research to educate yourself properly, in order to understand the bankruptcy process, and what to expect. It is at that point where you will begin to reduce the uncertainty and fear associated with bankruptcy. You will also want to take advantage of the free consultations that lawyers provide to new potential clients. After talking to several lawyers, you will probably find the lawyer that you feel most comfortable with. They will help you to understand things like how your assets and property may or may not be involved in the bankruptcy process.

However, the good news is that there are certain personal properties that are exempt from garnishment. When doing research on bankruptcy, you need to pay close attention on the properties that are exempt from garnishment. Read the law on bankruptcy thoroughly. If there is something that you do not understand about the law, ask somebody from the courts to explain these things to you.

Personally, I wouldn't suggest trying to do the bankruptcy procedure yourself. would suggest you take advantage of the many experienced attorneys that may be waiting for your call. In most cases, you should easily be able to find an attorney that fits within your budget. Normally, the first 10 to 20 minutes are free. You should be prepared to ask your most important questions. These lawyers can help you decide what can or cannot be done about your student loans.

The good thing about hiring a bankruptcy lawyer is that this person knows how to get most if not all of your student loans forgiven. Most of these bankruptcy lawyers understand your financial difficulties so they will not really charge you so much.
