Robert Gambrell's answer
If you have a confirmed plan that proposes to pay allowed general unsecured claims a percentage of the creditor\'s claim, the student loan claim will only be paid the percentage that was to be paid on the claim as it existed on the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. However, the student loan lender can apply the payments received during the plan to interest first if that is the manner in which the payments are to be applied per the promissory note and state law, with any portion over the...

Robert Gambrell's answer
Student loans are nondischargeable in chapter 13 cases unless you file an adversary proceeding in the form of a complaint to determine the dischargeability of the student loan and the bankruptcy judge rules in your favor. If the student loan cannot be discharged, then the interest that accrues on the student loan will not be discharged either.

Terrence H Thorgaard's answer
Has a probate case been filed in Puerto Rico? Have you received official notice if the filing of that case? Contact an attorney in Puerto Rico.

By the way, if you are over the age of 18, in most states as well as in Puerto Rico you are no longer considered a minor. So the fact that you are not yet 21 doesn\'t make any difference.

Christopher J Finn's answer
The short answer is if you are married, you have a potential claim in a divorce action to a percentage of the equity in the home regardless of whose name it is in. What that percentage is, if any at all, will be dependent on a number of factors, that will determine what an equitable (or fair) split is.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns

Very truly yours,

Chris
