Tampa Student Loan and Bankruptcy Attorney Blog — March 29, 2023
By now everyone (our attorney friends) has probably watched a CLE on the new DOJ Guidance to discharge federal student loans, but do you really understand how to do the process?
We are on a panel set up by the Bransons in Orlando doing an all-day workshop via Zoom on 4/3/23 for the step-by-step process. Including how to draft complaints, serve summons properly, how to fill out the attestation form, what/when to give the DOJ information, and how to get paid. Most likely this will be a $2,500.00 no look per creditor for student loan adversary or you can file a fee application.
I’ll also have a section on other options that are only good for a short period of time when folks have non-Direct federal student loans and an adversary won’t work. This will include the new one time account adjustment under the IDR Waiver, PSLF, the new Repaye calculations which should make an IDR payment roughly 1/3 of what it used to be, BDTR claims are now processing for full forgiveness, the 10k forgiveness appeal and an update on TPD and the payment pause.
We will also have a section on mortgage modification updates. We all have done quite a bit of this in the past foreclosure crisis, and a refresher course including post Covid relief is a good thing.
Hope you will join us!
