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!


Let's talk about solutions:
You can apply to have your Federal Student Loans taken out while you were attending the closed school administratively discharged. What does that mean? It means that the program offered by the U.S. Department of Education, your Direct Student Loan Lender, forgives the loan. The Dept. of Ed. lent you the funds to attend the close school, and their policy is such that if the school closes, it has the option to forgive the loan. However it is not automatic, and you have to qualify.

If you attended school and obtained Federal Student Loans, you may be eligible for a 100% discharge of those Federal Student Loans under certain circumstances, such as:
Your school closed while you're enrolled, and you could not complete your program or obtain your degreed or certificate because of the closure.
If you were on an approved leave of absence, you are considered to have been enrolled at the school.
Your school closes within 120 days (4 months) after you withdraw.

Every student's case is different and every case has to be evaluated. The Department of Education is not, at this point, going to offer a blanket discharge.

If you have been paying on your student loan, excellent. You are in a great position to apply for this type of discharge. Once your application has been received, any collection actions will stop, presumably, and you can stop making payments.

If you have not been paying on the student loan, you can still apply. Default is not a prohibiting factor.

Auto Loan Delinquency Rising

Late Car Payments?

The number of people 90 days late in car payments approaching peak levels since the subprime crisis of 2010.

If you’re late on your car payments, come in for a Chapter 13 consultation!

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,
