Generally speaking, student loan debt is not dischargeable in bankruptcy. The most common exception to that is if it would be an undue hardship for you to be required to repay these student loans. The undue hardship standard, although it sounds very easy to meet, is very difficult to meet currently the way the laws are written and the way the courts have interpreted the law. I would recommend that you have a discussion with a qualified bankruptcy attorney before filing to get some advice on whether or not your student loan debt could possibly be discharged in a bankruptcy.
