I am thrilled to announce the publication of my next book, “The Student Loan Guide for Parents and Cosigners,” now available in paperback and Kindle formats.
As many of you might know, student loan debt doesn’t just impact students. Each year, parents take out millions of dollars in Parent PLUS loans to finance their child’s college education. And millions of relatives, spouses, friends, and acquaintances of students cosign private student loans. Federal Parent PLUS loans and cosigned private student loans are very different from other types of student loan debt, and parents and cosigners often do not fully understand their rights or their options, especially when things go wrong. And there are minimal resources out there to help them.
That’s why I wrote this book.
When I first started my student loan law practice, I thought that all of my clients would be recent graduates in their 20’s or 30’s, trying to understand and navigate their student loan repayment. But at this point, I estimate that over one third of my clients at any given time are parents and cosigners. To me, this says a lot about the student debt crisis.
I hope this book will be helpful to some people, and I hope some of you will take the time to read it.
