Watch Our Videos: Discharging Student Loans in Bankruptcy

by CBJC Staff September 26, 2016

Have you ever considered filing for bankruptcy to discharge your student loan debt, or wondered if that is even possible?

The City Bar Justice Center’s Consumer Bankruptcy Project has produced two videos covering this topic, thanks to the generous support of the American College of Bankruptcy Foundation.

The first video, Gathering Student Loan Information, explains how you can find out what your outstanding debts are:


The second video, Discharging Student Loans in Bankruptcy, covers the qualifications your case must meet in order for your student loans to be discharged:


There are many other helpful resources regarding this topic listed in each of the videos’ YouTube descriptions and at the end of this article.

Please note that these videos provide general information to viewers about discharging student loans in bankruptcy. The videos are not step-by-step guides on how to discharge these debts.  It is important to speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney to ensure that bankruptcy is the right process for you.

The City Bar Justice Center’s Consumer Bankruptcy Project (CBP) provides low-income individuals residing in New York City with pro bono legal assistance regarding their outstanding debts. To see if you qualify for assistance from CBP, please call the Legal Hotline at 212.626.7383.
