Federal Student loans cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. You must repay them.

can you file student loans on bankruptcy no. But yes you do have to list them in your bankruptcy. And No they will not discharge the debt on them, if they are federal student loans.

The only way to make student loans go away is to pay them off. Recent changes in bankruptcy laws makes it almost impossible for student loans to be discharged in a bankruptcy filing. Or simply avoid students loans, check out the Related Link.

in most cases you can't included student loans in the bankruptcy filing. It would all depend on who your're trying to get the loan from. Some would let you have a loan (like the government student loans and stuff) but if your trying a private place like a bank you might not be able to.

You report all assets and all liabilities. However, government insured or backed student loans are NOT dischargeable.

No, filing for bankruptcy does not discharge or reduce the principle on student loans, though the bankruptcy process may put 'recovery attempts' on temporary hold. Regarding mortgages, filing bankruptcy will potentially discharge your debt, though you may lose your home unless you choose to file a Chapter 13, which will allow you to consolidate debts and retain your home if you so choose.

Yes, student loans can not be discharged in bankruptcy. You can consolidate your loans and get a smaller payment.

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.

If the student loan is a federal loan and not a private loan then the answer is no. Federal student loans can not be included in bankruptcy, you will always be responsible for repayment of FEDERAL student loans.

Pay everything else with credit and use your money to pay off student loans, then file bankruptcy. Although that would ruin your life as filing bankruptcy does the exact opposite of what you think it does, your better off dodging student loans and paying off all other debt first.

Student loans do not qualify for bankruptcy except in certain dire situations.

Government insured or provided student loans are NOT dischargeable.

You must list student loans in your bankruptcy. They are not dischargeable, though collections actions are stayed by the automatic stay when the case is filed.

I believe that student loans are a category of debt that is not dischargable in bankruptcy. The bankruptcy will show up on any credit reports, and you may subsequently be unable to et additional loans. I filed for bankrupcy in 1998. I was able to obtain Student Loans despite the bankruptcy in 1999-2000. My past credit history was not considered when determining my student loan application.

Student loans from any lender are not usually dischargeable in bankruptcy. They will temporarily stop collection during the proceedings, but interest will continue to accrue.

One can usually get student loans after bankruptcy so long as they meet the other eligibility requirements for those loans. Public policy mandates that a "well-educated" society is a "better" society, so for that reason student loans are protected from bankruptcy so lenders will freely give student loans without fear of being filed on. And, since student loans are excepted from discharge in bankruptcy, they're not generally too skittish about someone who has filed before. I have had several clients ask me that same question, and I tell them what I said above and I ask them to let me know if they ever do have a problem getting a student loan due to bankruptcy. So far, no one has ever called me saying the bankruptcy caused them any problems in getting student loans... for what it's worth. Please note that nothing in this posting or in any other posting constitutes legal advice; this is simply my understanding of the facts, which I do not warrant, and I am not suggesting any course of action or inaction to any person. that is not necessarily true. i filed bankruptcy and have had a steady job and even paid off a car loan that was applied for after the bankruptcy and I still cant get student loans. When you file for bankruptcy, you're still eligible for government loans, but not for private loans. These are the two basic types of loans. You should be able to qualify for government loans because these loans are based on need rather than credit

Sadly, yes. What a way to start your life though. Adding that to your resume is not a great idea. Student loans are not usually discharged in bankruptcy. While in bankruptcy, collection efforts will cease until the bankruptcy becomes inactive.

Yes. Educational loans fall under the category of "non-dischargeable debts" and do not go away in any type of bankruptcy filing.

Yes, if you deliberately fail to enter a debt on the bankruptcy schedule the BK can be dismissed with prejudice. When petitioning for your own bankruptcy you should disclose all of your debts. However, certain debts such as fines and Student Loans cannot be included in the bankruptcy.

Yes, but the student loans don't get cancelled: you still have to pay those.

This makes no sense. Sorry. Student loans are not discharged by bankruptcy, and unless the loans are private, they are not sold to other lenders. Typically, loans return to the Loan Service Center of the Department of Education, and are administrated by the Department of Treasury.

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.

It's my understanding that student loans are not discharged by bankruptcy any longer. YOu should check this, though

Only if you otherwise qualify for bankruptcy. Bankruptcy involves discharging debt. Certain debts are not dischargeable, like back child support, student loans, some taxes. If you are in violation of a state law requiring insurance coverage, filing bankruptcy will not help.

Student loans can be consolidated after graduation or dropping out of school by filing with the government to consolidate all federal student loans. Remember that non-federal loans cannot be consolidated.
