Student Loan & Medical Debt

Myths Vs. Facts

When it comes to understanding how bankruptcy affects student loans and medical debt, people get conflicting information which is sometimes wrong or based on misinformation. Rather than trying to sort these matters out for yourself or with the help of a well-intentioned (but wrong) loved one, our lawyers ask that you come see us. Put your mind at ease by knowing you have consulted with the attorneys here at Gold Lange & Majoros, P.C., in Metro Detroit.

More Than 100 Years Of Combined Bankruptcy Experience

Our experience enables us to advise you intelligently when it comes to areas of bankruptcy law that are changing or unclear. When it comes to student loans, while the law generally does not allow bankruptcy to eliminate student debt, there are unique situations in which it is possible.

Our lawyers know how to perform the careful analysis often needed in order to determine if student loan can be eliminated in a bankruptcy or not. Particularly if you have already been told you do not qualify for bankruptcy, you will rest easier knowing you have turned to our experienced lawyers for an authoritative second opinion.

When it comes to medical debt, we are often surprised by how many of our clients come to us thinking they cannot eliminate medical debt in a bankruptcy. Again, generally speaking, medical debt is treated just like credit card debt and gets eliminated in the bankruptcy.

People often think that chapter 7 cases are easy, straight forward and uncomplicated. It’s easy, right? An attorney just buys a computer software bankruptcy program, inputs some information, files the case, goes to the 341 hearing and then waits for the discharge order. While I certainly don’t turn down simple cases, I do come across […]
