The news is full of stories of college graduates getting their diploma, being thousands of dollars in debt with student loans and not being able to get a job in their chosen field. However, what most news stories do not mention is what graduates are facing with debt collectors.
Debt collection of student loans is on the increase, primarily because student loans are difficult to discharge in bankruptcy. The result is vigorous and unethical collection agents harassing recent graduates (or those who never graduated) for the unpaid student loans, knowing there is no real option for obtaining relief from their efforts.
While there have been some efforts by the government to deter the abusive tactics used by student loan collectors, more extensive efforts must be made. For starters, it is time to lower the burden placed on students trying to discharge student loan debt in a Chapter 7 of Chapter 13 bankruptcy.
While there is no clear light at the end of the tunnel for student loans being discharged in bankruptcy, we can help if you are being harassed by debt collectors. If a debt collector has violated the law, we can even pursue a monetary judgment for you!
