In order for student loans to be discharged in bankruptcy, the debtor has to file Complaint in an Adversary Proceeding to determine the dischargeablity of the loans. This is an action that must be taken along with filing the Voluntary Petition for bankruptcy relief in order to get the students loans discharged in bankruptcy. The Adversary Proceeding is similar to a regular civil trial with the student loans lenders most likely to respond to the debtor’s complaint to determine the dischargeability of the debts and file discovery requests including but not limited to Request for Production of Documents, Interrogatories, and Deposition.

In an Adversary Proceeding, the debtor has to show that due to extreme hardship that he/she is no longer able to pay her student loans. If the Court rules in her favor, the student loans would be discharged as part of her bankruptcy case. Otherwise, the loans would not be discharged and thus the debtor would continue to have the debts after filing for bankruptcy relief. See 11 U.S.C. Section 523(a)(8). Under current law, it is very hard to discharge student loans. However, it is not impossible.

Goodluck with your case,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.
