Whether a consumer is filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy or Chapter 13 bankruptcy, there are limits on what types of debt a person can discharge through bankruptcy.

Furthermore, with interest rates on student loans rising, and more students relying on loans to pay for school, this is a huge problem.

Filing for bankruptcy is a consumer remedy that is available for everyone. In fact, despite popular misconceptions even the most socially upstanding of citizens, like law enforcement officials, sometimes end up filing for bankruptcy. The most common form of bankruptcy individuals file today is Chapter 7 bankruptcy.
