Bankruptcy and students loans

Out of all of the people who have participated in higher education over recent years, a significant percentage has left their educational institution with large amounts of student loan debt.

Students in Ohio avoid bad credit score through bankruptcy

Young adults in Ohio who are just graduating from college will not be surprised to hear about the increasingly high amount of debt being carried by their peers. In fact, a recent report notes that the average college graduate in our nation has $35,200 in debt when they leave school. This can lead to some having difficulty with repayment and a low or bad credit score. The report notes that a full 7 percent of recent graduates say that they will never be able to repay the debts that they owe from college. Others believe that it will take 9 years to even hope to repay the loans and credit cards that they have taken out. In each of these cases, if the young person is unable to keep up with payments, they may find that they have a bad credit score.
