Could you discharge student loans in bankruptcy soon?

Having a college degree is usually necessary for securing a good, well-paying job. But since most people in Connecticut have to take on student loans to get their degrees, getting that well-paying job might not even do much to advance a person's financial situation. Discharging student loans in bankruptcy is also virtually impossible, although getting rid of other debt can reduce some of the burden when it comes to repayment. However, a recently proposed bill could change all of this.

Bankruptcy: Will making financial New Year's resolutions help?

With New Year's Day and the end of 2019 less than a month away, some people are already thinking ahead to their 2020 resolutions. Weight loss and other forms of personal improvement are some of the most well-known resolutions, but they are far from the only popular ones. Rather than file for bankruptcy in the next year, a significant number of adults would rather improve their financial situations. Paying off debt is certainly a great goal, but many resolutions are more than the average person in Connecticut can realistically handle.

The role of debt consolidation in bankruptcy

Paying off all debts in the smallest amount of time might be the ideal situation, but it is not realistic for the vast majority of people. Instead, a person is more likely to make the minimum payments or even miss payments if he or she has too much debt. People who are in this type of situation may try to avoid bankruptcy by consolidating debt with personal loans, but it may not be as effective as some hope.
