Maybe small claims court. Check with a local attorney. the best protection is DONT CO SIGN.

Generally anyone who causes financial damages, which non payment of the debt as promised would seem to be, can be sued to have those damages recovered from.

If one can pursue it in small claims court or needs a different one is really only dependent on the size of the claim, not the cause of action. In most areas the limit on awards in small claims is low, something like $1500 (varies). Anything more would require the higher, more procedurally formal court actions.

Is there any recourse a cosigner has against the borrower of a defaulted loan?

No, there is no legal recourse that i know of, but I do know of a way to help yourself if the loans are Federally Guaranteed student loans. Have the borrower consolidate the loans without you being a cosigner. Then, the previous loans will be paid off, and a new loan will be made. If you need help getting the defaulted loans consolidated, contact Default Management Services. Google the company name for a phone #. Ask for Doug, he is very knowledgeable.

What legal recourse is there for the cosigner when the person that was cosigned for has defaulted on the loan?

The usual legal recourse for the cosigner when the person named as the primary on a loan has defaulted, is to make the payments on the loan. Then, the cosigner can take the person who defaulted to court to try and recoup some of the money they are out. If the loan was for a car, some states allow the cosigner to take possession of the car and sell it to recoup losses also.

You could try to sue the primary in civil court. It may not be possible to actually win a suit until after actions have taken place to actually cause you damages. These damages would include, but are not limited to, a negative credit score, judgment, garnishment, etc.
