Handling Student Loans in Bankruptcy

Minnesota's Bankruptcy Law Firm for More Than 40 Years

Student loans are rarely dischargeable in bankruptcy. They are among several types of debts that cannot be discharged in bankruptcy. Others are back child support and most taxes.

Although the general rule is that student loans are not among debts that can be discharged in bankruptcy, there are some exceptions. Typically, exceptions to this rule of thumb involve serious injuries or other compelling reasons for which the debtor cannot repay the student loans without "undue hardship." Unless a debtor suffered a catastrophic injury or otherwise could not work at all, it is usually unlikely that the bankruptcy will discharge student loans or other nondischargeable debts.

Since student loans are an irremovable part of a monthly budget, a debtor's stated monthly expenses will be higher accordingly.
