What if I Owe Student Loans in a Colorado Bankruptcy?

However, it is important to talk to an experienced attorney about how a Chapter 7 or Chapter 13 bankruptcy could impact your ability to pay your student loans. At The Law Offices of W. Robert Montgomery, we have helped thousands of individuals and families find relief from their debts and make a fresh financial start.

Denver Attorneys: Student Loans and Bankruptcy
Student loans may be dischargeable during bankruptcy under extremely rare circumstances — if the debtor has a physical or mental irreversible long-term disability. This requires the disabled person to file a separate lawsuit against the lending authority alleging undue hardship. If you pursue this path, you must show that it is unlikely you will ever be able to pay even a portion of your student loan debt.
At The Law Offices of W. Robert Montgomery, our experienced bankruptcy attorneys will carefully assess your unique situation and form the best strategy based on your unique needs and goals. If your wages are currently being garnished for student loan debt, a Chapter 13 bankruptcy can stop the wage garnishment, allow you to restructure your debt, and free up income so that you can pay your student loans on your own terms.
