Can you file bankruptcy on Sally Mae student loan?

No. Under no bankruptcy scheme will student loan obligations be dischargeable. Rather, they will remain with you until they are paid off and just because you have filed for bankruptcy does not mean that the loan interest rates will stop either. This is a debt you should attend to as soon as you can and if it is a major reason for your filing for bankruptcy then I urge you to reconsider and speak with an attorney first.

Can you still get a student loan if you are in default on another loan and you just filed bankruptcy?

No. and Yes. The default on your prior student loan must be addressed and the loan rehabilitated before you're eligible for more student loans. The bankruptcy would only affect you if you had a defaulted student loan that was written off in the bankruptcy. Otherwise, bankruptcy doesn't prohibit you from applying and received federal student loans. Student loans are NOT automatically written off in bankruptcy and take extra steps with the courts.

Ugh. This question is a loaded minefield. I will say this, that up until 1996, you could discharge a student loan in a bankruptcy if it was over 7 years old. Was your past student loan discharged in the past bankruptcy? It's hard to say. You need to inform them that you filed bankruptcy 15 years ago and plead your filing as an affirmative defense. You may have to re-open your old bankruptcy case and litigate the issue. Do speak to an attorney.

Can you still get a loan after filing for bankruptcy?

Once the bankruptcy is dismissed or discharged it is quite acceptable to file for a new loan. In fact once your chapter 7 or chapter 11/13 is discharged, lending institutions will be lining up to loan you money. The potential of getting a loan approved if your bankruptcy is dismissed is extremely remote however. Considering the reasons for filing bankruptcy might be a good pre-loan application exercise though.

Will a car title loan be discharged by filing bankruptcy?

No, only unsecured debt is discharged.


Yes it is possible to qualify for a mortgage despite a Chapter 13 bankruptcy filing. In a Chapter 13 filing the debtor agrees to a court structured debt repayment schedule. Typically, after making payments on time to creditors as required by the bankruptcy agreement an individual can be discharged by the Court from the Chapter 13 proceeding. Once discharged from bankruptcy an individual can apply for a mortgage. Each bank has different rules about how soon someone can apply for a mortgage after a bankruptcy. Most people coming out of bankruptcy apply for an FHA mortgage loan since this program has the most lenient underwriting standards.

In the U.S., you can include a student loan in a bankruptcy and try to get it approved for economic hardship, but it rarely works. Federal and private student loans are not eligible to be discharged in bankruptcy and are rarely allowed by judges.If you need help consolidating your default student loans and get a low monthly payment or 3 years of no payment, call Default Management Services. You can Google them. Ask for Doug.
