Is Bankruptcy A Way To Pardon Student Loans?

The Condition of “Undue Hardship”

Many people are in debt due to the student loans they took out in order to pay for their college education. With many possible solutions to remove the debt once and for all, however the most favored is bankruptcy. But being students, claiming bankruptcy is defiantly a problem because the legal terms and conditions of the student loan clearly states that the loan is non dischargeable. Due to this very reason, the loan repayment causes the borrower “undue hardship”. This hardship only occurs at time when the person is facing a high degree of financial problems that he or she will not be able to satisfy his or her basic needs once the loan is repaid. In order to claim bankruptcy, the borrower needs to affirm that he or she is facing undue hardship; however hard it may be.

History of Undue Hardship Clause

In the past, students were able to get rid of their student loans. However, lenders criticized the system, which lead to changes in the rules and regulations of the student loan contract. Now it is harder for students to get their loans discharges. Even thought this may seem unfair, the system was criticized because students took advantage of the system as they declared bankruptcy immediately after completing their students before they even got a job. This is why the rules and regulations of the contract had to be changed, as the lenders were losing out.

What the Clause Says About Student Loan Discharge

After the change in rules and regulations of private loans, the government felt it was necessary to apply this clause to government loans as well. This made student loan discharge even more impossible. However, in order to get a student loan discharge, you will need to prove to the government that your living of standard is not high and that you have tries every possible means of paying back the loan. Only then will your loan be pardoned.

The Sign of the Co-Signer

Even when you have met all the terms and conditions in the clause, you will need a co-signer. The co-signer is the person who signed the contract with you when you took out the loan in the first place. That specific co-signer will not be able to take into account his hardship exclusion.

What to Keep In Mind

When you decide to claim bankruptcy, you need to make sure that you have thought about it very clearly. You should only file for bankruptcy if it is necessary and there are no other options available to you. Make sure that when you are going to claim bankruptcy that it will pardon your student loan, otherwise declaring you are bankrupt will do you no good.

If you are in debt and you need to pay your student and other loans but are unable due to a low income job, you will need to visit the court. By visiting the court, you will be able to find ways to declare hardship and have a new start to your life debt free.

Question by Tipsy Dipsy: What is the official term for a pardon after a death sentence?
I know there’s a an official term, I just can’t remember it. And google’s not much help either. It would be if someone had been put to death by the state, and then pardoned after the government re-investigated and realised they weren’t guilty after all.

And – what would be the point of that?! Why do they do it? Is it for the sake of the victim’s family?

Best answer:

Answer by Tanya D
It could be a stay of execution, which is usually temporary.

There could be a commutation of the death sentence to a term of imprisonment, usually life.

And, there could actually be a full pardon and let the prisoner free.

Often, the stay is because there is a chance that the court will overturn the penalty or even the conviction – so it is to let the courts do their job.

The commutation is to stop the execution – it could be for any of a number of reasons – the Governor of Illinois a few years ago commuted every death sentence in that state to life.

The pardon is when the prisoner didn’t do it, or the trial was so unfair that there is no way the prisoner got a fair trial, or the sentence is ridiculous, or any one of a number of reasons.

Rarely does the victim’s family have much to do with it. These are executive decisions, sometimes political,

We Are As a Nation Heading Into Bankruptcy and Financial Disaster – A Medical Disaster Also

pardon letter
by lisby1

The disaster that took place in our financial markets has become a stepping stone for government to step in under the guise of helping, it has been trying to control salaries for top executives all over the business community. I agree that salaries and compensation for top level management have gone beyond reason and that there must be caps and restrictions placed where performance is tied to results. It cannot be sanctioned by today’s marketplace, that a company in failure has to pay exorbitant money to its top people for a job badly done.

Performance must be ahead of enumeration and tied to moving the company forward in value. We cannot keep paying for failure! In today’s business climate, people want more than good intention’s and a big name from the Right background in business to manage a company, for the sake of all its workers and stockholders. The day is gone where a company goes bankrupt but all the top brass goes home with an enormous severance package for failure. The big bucks are for doing a good job with results that warrant payment of large sums. And most, must be tied to stock options as the major part of payment.

Now we have the government stepping in to take over companies, after bailing them out with our taxpayer money. These companies still want to use that money for huge salary packages and not to improve the running of the company. They want to go on the same way they have, which led to the downfall in the first place. What do we have to do, to make these people realize its over. Either shape up or ship out. When will they realize the American people are fed up with incompetent leadership and are demanding action and performance.

Now the government wants to set salaries and compensation levels all across business. And now we all see the health reforms they want are for the benefit of unions and business that do not want to pay for coverage of employees or union members. That is the reason behind all this supposed concern for the American people. The government will take the load from business to cover employees which costs them millions every year and dump it onto the government. Unions do not want to have to lay out medical coverage for its members so it will all fall onto us as taxpayers to pick it up for them.

Did you really think the President was concerned for people? It was part of a supposedly secret campaign promise to unions to get their backing and money. Why should business back our President who has claimed to be against capitalism in its present form. The taxes proposed to pay for this program will be very much higher that stated in proposals. According to CBC figures and others that include all the separate bills under different names submitted to congress, it puts the price somewhere in the range of One point eight trillion dollars.

That starts with a T. He also admits that it will still leave about thirty million people who are still not covered. So: If all this program will do is cover fifteen to twenty million people that, according to his own words, out of the now claimed fifty million without coverage. What is the cost of just covering the difference between fifty million down to thirty or thirty five five million? It is 1.8 trillion It is he proposed new medial plan. I will tell you what I have come to believe. It was a promise made to big business and labor to relieve them of the growing costs of covering their workers. Once the President gets his bill passed; every effort will be to go to the public option, and that means the government will be in full control. He will fight tooth and nail to get it.

All medical procedures will be rationed and strict limits on who receives what. The elderly will suffer most with cuts to medicare for procedures and tests, which is bankrupt and so is medicaid that is being given to most illegal immigrants and almost anyone that applies. Medicaid as it is being administered today is dragging down the whole medical system. People all over this nation are using our hospital emergency rooms as their private doctors offices. Thousands upon thousands go there for colds and minor complaints because it is free to them.

If we placed co,payments on every visit with money collected up front , we would see a dramatic drop. Say if we charged $ 25. for every visit to the hospital E R then we might curb the unnecessary use. Their are still plenty of clinics to care for indigent people and families. The amount will not help the hospitals pay for visits but it would stop people from going there for every little sniffle or headache and minor bump. What we really need is to cut the waste and paperwork that buries every part of the medical field.

I have one suggestion to help the whole industry. As President; President Obama could mandate that all parts of the medical community get together and come up with a three page document that would cover all contingencies and treatment with space for information of every kind. They can attach test results where needed. Every company would have input on what information is needed but it would all have to fit into one three page double sided form. If they are unable to arrive at an agreement, then the government would draw one up for them from efficiency experts, and then they would have to live with it. If everyone wants their own way, then no one will.

If America is to have a chance to come out of the worst economic downturn since the great depression then we must cut back on spending for every department and agency within government. We have many agencies that go back to the beginning of the 1900s and beyond. We must weed out and examine every program within every department to see what can be disposed of as unnecessary or duplication. We must also stop automatic increases for every program. Budget increases must be justified for every department and program. It is time for extreme measures in budget reform and cutting spending for every increase proposed.

If America does not send E-Mails and letters to every representative they can , then nothing will change and we will go on and on to a complete implosion in our monetary system. America will be a second rate power and no other nations will feel safe buying our securities to back our debt, then it will all collapse. I remember during the Clinton years that Republicans had control over both houses and came up with their contract with America, formed to cut waste and spending in government. They forced through budget cuts and spending cuts that eventually got us close to a balanced budget. Of course President Clinton claimed credit for what they did but it was what was needed at that time.

They forced through things that were decried and fought against by President Clinton and yet when he left office we were in fairly good shape financially. The fact that they wrecked the White House and pardoned so many friends and acquaintances of his from indictments, came as no surprise. Politicians do things like that and many Presidents have done the same but maybe not to that extent. Medical care will be rationed and lifesaving measures for the elderly will be cut back and waits for treatment and tests can be stretched out until death ends the wait. Just look to the countries where they have one payer medical coverage and ask the people living under it for their opinions.

Tied to any new measures must be tort reform. The awards handed out by juries in the northeast and other large communities across America has to be realistic and measured to what happened. To award 30 million to a victim or their families might feel good to those in the jury box but it costs us all in the end. I myself had the occasion to have a lawsuit but it was for an automobile accident. It was handled fairly and quickly. The cost of trivial lawsuits for people who want money from business or medical malpractice claims is growing out of control. The lawyers that will sue anyone and everyone for any perceived injury or insult has to be stopped. Any birth defect will have a lawyer wanting to sue somebody charging malpractice. Birth defects have been happening since before the time we had doctors.

Their have to be some standard where we can block frivolous lawsuits by lawyers trying to blackmail doctors into settlements just to get them out of the way. The doctors then need lawyers of their own, and that’s where malpractice insurance companies charge exorbitant fees. It is all paid for by all of us when we go to any doctor that has to pay the insurance premiums to practice. I have seen figures from television news shows that purport, the amount of doctors that will leave their practices is growing close to 40% Doctors are getting away from practicing as an individual and more and more are forming group practices with umbrella coverage for all. Some are even retiring ahead of time just to get out of the rat race.

Things like that happen every day all across America when we have no restrictions at all upon who can sue whom or for what reasons. Somewhere, somehow we have to come up with caps for certain types of medical malpractice suits and justification for a lawsuit has to be on a ” reasonable ” basis. I do not have the answers, but we have a good many great minds out there,across America, and if they can come up with some solutions that make sense, sound reasonable, then upon considered reflection by all parties, they should be adopted. I seem to have gone afield from where I started but it is an enormously complicated subject.

The economy is in a mess and adopting a medical plan that will cost the country over $ 900 billion if not close to 2 trillion to cover less than 20 million people out of 50 million not presently covered is fantastic if not very close to criminal. To use the Presidents own words their are fifty million not presently covered under medical insurance.! The new proposed plan will leave thirty million still not covered under the new policies. What are we spending, even with the Presidents own numbers of $ 900 Billion, to only cover 20 million more than now. Pardon me for not agreeing with the plan.

If anything I have written makes sense to you then I ask only one thing from each and every one of you. Write letters, send E-Mails or telegrams to anyone you can in your local, state or federal government. Let the representatives in your area know how you feel. Keep abreast of things happening as, I am sure, you can spend at least two hours a week on the web looking up what interests you or effects you and your family. If we don’t then who will. It is up to all of us to do whatever we can to inform ourselves and vote in every election and demand from our elected officials that they answer for the way they vote on bills that come before them. We have that right as they are there to represent us.

As I have stated many times before in other forums: All that is needed for evil to triumph is for good men (and women) to do nothing. If we don’t then who will? God Bless America!

Bankruptcy Discharge Spelled Out

Article by Drew Koppa

To be discharged of one’s financial debt is the main reason why anyone would file for bankruptcy, especially in a Chapter 7 bankruptcy. After a discharge, the debtor will cease to be required to pay for the money owed. Virtually all types of debts could be discharged; however, there are certain debts that endure a bankruptcy. Up until the debtor gets a discharge, the automatic stay becomes effective to be able to stop lawsuits and repossession of creditors.

Under Chapter 7 bankruptcy, when an individual files for bankruptcy, his or her properties will be liquidated. It generally suggests that a person is starting over financially, immediately on the date of petition. Virtually all of an individual’s debts that are tied to certain assets at the moment of the petition are placed on hold through an automatic stay up until the discharge. However, the non-exempt properties and assets are going to be sold by a trustee who is appointed by the bankruptcy court to dispose of them and then also make use of the proceeds to pay back debts until it is all gone If the funds have depleted and there are still remaining debts, they will be pardoned through a court’s action.

Under Chapter 13 bankruptcy, it won’t be necessary to liquidate one’s properties and assets to pay back her / his debts. A debtor can also get an opportunity to hinder a foreclosure of his residence. A person in debt needs to repay the money owed through a repayment program which will be accepted by the court. The time period of a repayment plan is three to five years. After the repayment time frame, the person in debt is going to be released from whatever remaining debt. One needs to ensure, however, that he / she has paid the required monthly installments

The automatic stay differs from the debt discharge but it supports the discharge by holding off the properties and assets of a person from being taken back by loan providers beginning on the day of bankruptcy application. The lenders are prevented from doing any measures which are against a person in debt who is under a bankruptcy. A lender is required to get the consent of the court to collect debt repayments to a debtor who is in bankruptcy. However, in an automatic stay, the court is likely going to refuse such request of a lender. The automatic stay will not be altered ahead of a discharge.

Not all sorts of financial obligations are regarded as dischargeable. The most frequent financial obligations which are exempted from discharge are education loan and family support kinds of financial debts. A student loan will carry on after a bankruptcy unless of course paying for it puts a serious strain to an individual or to a debtor’s family members. The bankruptcy law does not also eliminate family obligations even in severe debt troubles mainly because such payments might be needed by the dependents.

An individual whose debts have been discharged is not anymore legally required to repay them and the bankruptcy court can charge a collector for contempt in case she / he still tries to acquire for payments.
