Bankruptcy Law Questions? Ask a Bankruptcy Lawyer Now.
Hello I am a licensed attorney here to help you with your question, please review my response and do not hesitate to ask for clarification.
If the private student loans were actually discharged and listed in your discharge letter, you should contact the collection company and send them your case number XXXXX copy of your petition with the discharge letter. Advise them if they try to pursue collections they are in violation of Federal law and you will bring legal action against them.
the discharge letter does not list specific debtors, it just says we were discharged
They will want to see the entire petition, especially your list of creditors, and statement of intention and creditors matrix, as long as the loan is listed you are fine.
ok. they were definitely listed on the original petition
thanks for your help
