Regular readers of this blog know that we write from time to time on the topic of student loan debt and bankruptcy. To repeat what we’ve said previously, it is not easy to have student loan debt discharged in bankruptcy.
Usually, only borrowers in the most dire of straits have been able to obtain discharge of student loan debt. Because of this, many debtors don’t even ask for relief from student loan debt because it is so rare to receive a discharge. Most borrowers have been convinced that it is useless to ask for such relief.
