My husband has two student loans from the late 1980′s. This occured prior to our meeting/marriage. The current situation (for the past 10 years) is that I am the sole provider for our family of four children (two teenagers & two almost). We have been contacted by different companies (I don’t know whom) regarding these loans. Although, with my income, we are doing better now then we were doing prior to our role reversals, we are still having to live paycheck to paycheck. A few weeks ago we were contacted again and I spoke with them instead. I’ve been given two options for repayment (neither of which I can afford), but am concerned that if I get involved, it will fall on to me as becoming my debt.
I’m not sure what to ask but want to know at what point have I become responsible for this debt. Will my own wages be garnished? What do I do???
