Ask The Get Out of Debt Experts Student Loans

I Just Filed a Pro Se Adversary Proceeding to Discharge My Student Loans

Written by Steve Rhode


Dear Steve,

Hi, just read your article.

I’ve just filed an adversary proceeding in Brooklyn-Eastern District Bankruptcy Court against US DOE, requesting undue hardship discharge of student loan debt.

Is there any update to this article, or any other information you’ve come across regarding attempts at student loan discharges? The study you reference in article was informative, but looking for more recent stats.

I’ve filed pro-se as cannot afford attorney, so any info, advise, et al is appreciated!
