Borrowers who took out student loans to finance their education often find themselves in a pickle once they’ve graduated. They are stuck with the daunting task of finding a job in an extremely competitive market where nearly half of all job seekers possess an associate degree or higher. On top of the tough competition to find gainful employment, borrowers are also juggling the stress of managing their student loan debt. On traditional repayment plans, monthly student loan payments may be more expensive than the average mortgage on an American home! Student Loan Law Group helps borrowers lower their monthly payments to a manageable amount in relation to each individual borrower’s income and household size.

In the event that these borrowers are unable to find gainful employment right away, they may be unable to meet the high demands from collection agencies and loan servicers without help from Student Loan Law Group. If a borrower misses five (5) payments or more, his or her account may be considered in default. Defaulting on student loans means the borrower’s account is at least two hundred and seventy (270) days overdue. Student Loan Law Group realizes that such default can bring harsh consequences upon unsuspecting borrowers.
