Thank you for your question.
Student loans are no longer dischargable in any chapter of bankruptcy unless you can prove that repaying the loan creates an undue hardship on you or your family.
Proving hardship usually requires showing that the payor can not provide a minimum standard of living the payor or the payor's dependents if they have to repay the loan. Some courts will discharge part of the loan on a showing that repaying it all would be a hardship.
