I'm probably going to get alot of flak for this but I"m gonna ask the question anyway.

As my understanding goes, student loans can be included in a bankruptcy under extreme circumstances. Does anyone know what is considered extreme? or can point me in the direction of a legal precedent of said happening?

I've been tossing around the idea in the back of my head, as I'm working on starting my own business. Increasing my income will increase my ICR payments, which should not theoretically interfere with my quality of life, but... I don't want it to hold me down like an anchor either.

The likelyhood of my income reaching a point where I would be able to pay off the loan(s) is nill to null. or naught to aught? Anyway...

Just wondered, if anyone had any suggestions.

Lady I, getting really tired of carrying around the monkey on her back.
