A recent government report indicated that Student Loan Debts are now greater than Credit Card Debt, with over 1.2 TRILLION Dollars owed on Student Loan debt.  If you have a Government guaranteed loan there are currently a number of programs to help you manage the dept.  All of the information you need can be found at  You don’t need to “call today” for a free consultation, or hire an attorney to get you into a repayment plan.  However, if  you are dealing with a private student loan, or seeking a discharge a qualified attorney may be the way to go.  Discharging a student loan generally requires a separate lawsuit, in a Bankruptcy proceeding, although federal loans can be administratively discharged under certain circumstances.  No matter what type of loan you have a Chapter 13 Bankruptcy can give you temporary relief while addressing any other debt you may have.
