Bankruptcy Overview (15)

Corinthian Students


There can be nothing worse for a student than to have the whole school close down from underneath you, leaving you lost, dazed and confused. Such is the most recent case of the Corinthian Colleges, Inc. owned "for profit" schools. Everest, Wyotec, and Heald College System. In California alone, it is said that over 16,000 students were sent home.
What a catastrophe!

If you're still holding the bag on an income tax debt your ex-spouse drove up, and particularly if you don’t have the wherewithal to repay it, you might be in luck. It doesn’t matter if the tax bill is a result of an understatement of earnings tax on the return, or if it’s just an underpayment of the tax due at the time--you may have a chance of absolving yourself of the obligation for payment. But you’ll have to fight for it.

Teacher Loan Forgiveness

In our experience at the Law Offices of Chris Bush, there is one part of our everyday workforce that is so underpaid, it defies all logic. School Teachers!

As we experience a shifting economy, the salaries of teachers continue to decline, while the cost of higher education and teaching credentials skyrockets. That means we see school teachers, from K-1 through high school, suffer the enormous pressure of dealing with their student loan debt.

Are you struggling under the weight of a student loan? You’re not alone.

Student loan debt cripples many student loan borrowers, including recent graduates. Many leave college with thousands of dollars in student loans. Even with a steady job, it can be difficult to meet student loan repayment obligations. Others struggle for years in an attempt to manage the student loan debt.

STRUGGLING TO PAY STUDENT LOAN DEBT?

Are you struggling to pay back your student loans? You're not alone. According to American Student Assistance, the average student loan balance as of 2012 was $24,301. Of more than 37 million borrowers, 14 percent have a student loan that is past due. That is about 5.4 million people.

Many students expect to find well-paying jobs after their college graduation. This does not always happen. With tens of thousands of dollars in student loan debt and no solid means of repayment, many individuals default on their student loans.

Understanding the Truth About Short Sales | San Diego Attorney | Mission Valley Attorney 

Avoiding More Trouble. Avoiding Short Sales.

Short sales may seem like a promising option for homeowners who want to avoid foreclosure. A bank may even agree to sell the property at a loss. However, while the bank and realtor receive some benefits — they do not have to pay large foreclosure fees — the short sale process rarely benefits homeowners. It only accelerates the time the homeowner has to move out.

Circumstances That May Lead to Foreclosure

Clients who are facing foreclosure are frequently victims of unforeseen circumstances. They may have suffered a serious illness and been unable to work. The house may have required essential and expensive repairs. They may have been victimized by predatory lenders. They may have borrowed money against a home that is now worth less than they owe. San Diego foreclosure attorney Chris Bush can help stop foreclosure proceedings and give clients a chance to address their financial problems.

Compassionate. No-nonsense. Great job. Saved me $85K!

I had three choices: two large groups, or DebtDoc. I chose DebtDoc because of their numerous excellent reviews from clients as well as other attorneys. Also, I wanted someone to provide personal service and have a vested interest in my difficult student loan case.

I certainly made the right choice. DebtDoc's attorneys personally answered two of my phone calls and regularly answered my emails, even on one Sunday evening.

After 30 years of student loan "prison", he got me freedom AND he even got the US Dept. of Justice to dismiss 25% of my loans, which saved me $85K.

I feel like I have a new lease on life because of DebtDoc. I wish I could recommend 10 stars.

Client Testimonial

To whom it may concern,
DebtDoc's attorneys are extremely knowledgeable with the complexities of Federal Student Loans.
I went from a thriving career to full medical disability, ending with an SSDI placement. Unfortunately, I lost everything and became unable to continue making the student loan payments, so it was in deferment for over five years. When the SSDI settled I tried to negotiate an affordable payment plan with the loan holders but they refused my efforts, instead demanding over twice the amount I could afford.
I contacted DebtDoc and found them to be courteous, responsive and quick to assess my situation. They were sure they could help and took time to answer all questions, which relieved much anxiety. Within months they successfully resolved the debt! With much confidence, I highly recommend DebtDoc.
Sincerely,
