The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida has announced a Student Loan Modification Program effective August 1, 2019:
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida has established procedures for individual debtors to seek options for the repayment of student loans under the administrative oversight of the Bankruptcy Court. The new procedures utilize an online portal for secure communications between debtors and student loan lenders and will facilitate the parties in reaching mutually beneficial agreements for the payment of student loans. The Court's Administrative Order Prescribing Procedures for Student Loan Modification Program, FLMB-2019-1, becomes effective on August 1, 2019.
See the Court's SLMPOrder.pdf for more details.
The revised Model Plan informs the debtor that the automatic stay does not apply to secured creditors if the debtor elects to surrender collateral to the secured creditor, to make payments directly to the secured creditor, or to not make payments to the secured creditor. The revised Model Plan informs the debtor that, under certain plan treatments, there is no discharge of personal liability for claims.
