Your student loans may be dischargable in bankruptcy

Here at Shenwick & Associates, we pay close attention to new developments that may affect our bankruptcy practice. At the beginning of this year, we sent out an e-mail regarding student loans and bankruptcy.  Since then, we’ve been continuing to explore the topic, including reviewing this article on the “undue hardship” standard and the Brunner testJudges are criticizing the existing standards, and Congress continues to consider changing the Bankruptcy Code to make student loans easier to discharge. 

We’re excited to announce that we’ve partnered with an experienced litigator to analyze student loan debt and, based on our analysis, seek a partial or full discharge of the student loan debt (principally “non – qualified” private loans, but other loans may be partially or fully dischargeable depending on your circumstances).  If you’ve previously filed for bankruptcy and have student loan debt that wasn’t discharged, your case can be reopened (with no filing fee), even if it was filed by another attorney.  Please contact Jim Shenwick to discuss if you’re interested.
