can I file bankruptcy and still attend college?
February 26th, 2009 by Questions
I attended College on and off since 2001. During that time, I went through a costly divorce, serious illness that prevented me from working( I was not on disability due to the fact that my ex was ordered to pay spousal support and is still paying). I attempted to get my RN degree, but could not complet this and now am feeling better enough to attend college again. My problem is that I have over 16,000 in student debt and have become insolvent with no assets. I would like to return to college and would like to know if I can attend college while in bankruptcy. Any extra money I have would go towards my tuition and was told by someone that I may not be able to do this. I find myself in a catch 22 because I need to get an education in order to make ends meet and support 3 children. Would I have to wait until the bankruptcy is discharged before I return to college, or can I use the extra money to get my degree? Also, what would happen to the current student loan I have from 2001?
