The Student Loan Guide for Parent Borrowers and Cosigners
Think student loan debt just impacts students? Think again. Each year, parents take out millions of dollars in federal Parent PLUS loans to finance their child's college education. And each year, millions of relatives, spouses, friends, and acquaintances cosign a private student loan so that someone else can pay for school. When things go wrong, these well-meaning people are hit with crushing debt, collections calls, or even lawsuits. Navigating out of trouble is a horrendous experience. Attorney Adam S. Minsky, author of Student Loan Debt 101, is a leading expert in student loans. He is renowned as a pioneer in student loan law as the founder of one of the first law firms in the country devoted entirely to helping student borrowers and others affected by student loans. This is a practical guide to federal parent loans and cosigned private student loans that will help you avoid problems, and show you some options if you're already in trouble.
