It is well-known that student loan debt is particularly burdensome. The bankruptcy code does not take kindly to it, and over the last fifteen years Congress has increasingly altered it to protect creditors’ interests, including its own. Although, in recent years it has enhanced income-contingent repayment plans and hardship discharges. Nevertheless, debtors are still taking their cases to bankruptcy court, and thankfully winning against their creditors. The latest victory goes to a debtor who had $85,000 in student loan debt for a law degree. Here are the facts.
Michael Hedlund fought hard to discharge his student loans, and by sticking it out he won against a tenacious creditor. If you are in a similar situation as he was, and you have the help of an experienced and equally tenacious Las Vegas bankruptcy lawyer, you might be able to reduce some of your student loan debts as well.
