Q: What can happen to me when I default on my student loans?
A: Depending on your type of loan, you run the risk of having your wages garnished. Your tax refund can also be seized for federally backed student loans. If the student loan lender is a private lender and not backed by the state or Federal government then they cannot garnish your wages. However, if they sue you and obtain a default judgment then the student loan creditor has more collection options against you.
Q: I have been sued for a student loan, what happens if I just ignore it?
A: If you do not respond to the lawsuit, you will have a default judgment against you. With a default judgment the creditor will then have more powers, including garnishment of your bank accounts. This applies even for a private student loan. Private student loan lenders cannot garnish your bank account without a valid judgment. If you have been sued, you should strongly consider hiring a student loan lawsuit defense attorney. Please contact our firm for a free no obligation consultation.

Q: Can I just file for Bankruptcy?
A: Unfortunately student loan debts are extremely difficult to get discharged in Bankruptcy. To qualify you have to show an undue hardship which is an extremely high threshold.
