I Went to Law School and Can’t Afford My Loans



Dear Steve,

I decided to attend law school at 40 because it was a dream I always had, when I graduated in 2009 there were no legal jobs and my loans kept garnering interest. I landed a new job in 2015 but my loans went into default, now they are taking $600 per check, I can’t afford to live, I got divorced last year and am looking for a way out.

What would you do at my age?



Dear Tom,

I’d invent a time machine and go back to the moment before you applied for law school.

But seriously, it really depends if these loans are private of federal. Update me in the comments below and I can provide more advice.

Big Hug!
