Rochester's Channel 13 news interviewed me two days ago on the issue of student loans and bankruptcy. Here's the link. As I have stated in previouys blogs, we (bankruptcy attorneys) do not have much to offer student loan debtors. A hardship discharge in bankruptcy is extremely difficult to obtain; it pretty much requires permanent disability. People going into school should be very clear-eyed about the potential to generate income at the other end sufficient to pay off whatever loans are incurred to finance the education.
