Will I Be Arrested When I Reenter the U.S. Because of My Bad Debt?

“Dear Steve,

I am Turkish citizen. I stayed five years in the States for master and doctoral education. I had a scholarship from my government and was together with my three kids and wife. Only one semester, I worked in campus as a research assistant and got a social security ID.

After graduation I came back to my country and started to work. Unfortunately, I left the US with some credit card debts. Currently, my salary doesn’t let me a chance to pay back for them. Honestly, this gives me so much pain. Time to time, I got some chances to apply for a position on UN System in New York, but, the debt that I left there is big question in my mind. I don’t know the laws and what the best way is to follow. One day when I start to earn enough money I want pay back them all.

My question is that if I come to the US for a job interview or for an academic activity what should expect? What should I do for the debt from now on? Thanks in advance. Take care.

Hasan”
