Possibilities for discharging student loan debt

Texas residents may have heard that student loan debts cannot be discharged. However, there are some unusual circumstances in which this may be possible. For example, if a school closes while a student is enrolled or within 120 days of the student leaving the school, the student loans may be discharged. Another unusual situation is if the college is found to have violated state laws. It is necessary to prove that the violation was related to the student's education or loans such as taking out loans based on deceptive information.

Options for consolidating credit card debt

Texas residents who are struggling with credit card debt but still have good credit might consider a no-interest balance transfer credit card to consolidate their debt. Another consideration might be getting a personal loan if the interest rates are lower. They could also apply for a home equity loan or line of credit.

Know your options if you are being harassed by creditors

Being in debt is an incredibly stressful situation. You can be worried about losing your home, having your utilities shut off and being in debt forever. On top of this, you may also be struggling with job loss or difficulty finding a job, medical care and other situations that often contribute to debt.
