Discharging A Student Loan May Be In Horizon With New Legislation

Economic relief through bankruptcy will help with the student loan crisis.

San Diego, CA, January 28, 2015 – Representative John K. Delaney (MD-6) has filed legislation in Congress spotlighting the omnipresent financial crisis with student loan debt. Unlike mortgage, credit card and auto loan debt, the current law does not allow for student loan debt to be discharged. The Discharge Student Loans in Bankruptcy Act (H.R. 449) would most likely render student loans dischargeable under bankruptcy.

Student loan debt is dragging down economic growth, keeping the American Dream out of reach for many and is a monthly strain for millions,” Congressman Delaney said in a recent statement. “While student loan debt is a complex problem that will require many solutions—increased support for grant programs, efforts to increase affordability, improved consumer education—we also need to reform our laws to help those with the absolute greatest need. Right now, there is effectively a huge student loan loophole in bankruptcy law that’s hurting real people."

As the cost of college tuition continues to rise, the student loan debt burden on students and their families also continues to rise. San Diego bankruptcy lawyer D.J. Rausa said, “Student loan debt affects not only recent graduates but also every age generation, even senior citizens.  This legislation would truly help people struggling with this issue.”

"Bankruptcy has long been an option of last resort for individuals facing an irresolvable level of debt; bankruptcy isn’t easy or enjoyable, but it’s a necessary part of our financial system," Delaney continued. "It doesn’t make sense for students with heavy debt burdens to be worse than someone with credit card, auto loan debt or mortgage debt. Every member of Congress from every state in the country has constituents who are struggling severely because of student loan debt. At the very least we should have some basic fairness in the law.”

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,
