Getting student loans is remarkably easy - but dealing with student loan repayment can be a nightmare. And as student loan debt continues to grow and repayment programs get even more complicated, it's no wonder that so many borrowers feel lost. The typical college graduate takes on an average of over $30,000 in student loans, and the numbers are even more staggering for law school graduates. Considering the combined cost of an undergraduate and law school education, the average law school debt burden can easily exceed $100,000. With the many challenges unique to new lawyers, it can be difficult to create an effective plan for managing student loans while studying for the bar exam, searching for a job, and adjusting to a new work environment. Adam S. Minsky is an attorney and one of the nation's leading experts in student loan law. He specializes in helping new graduates manage their student debt, and he knows there are no easy, one-size-fits-all solutions. The Student Loan Handbook for Law Students and Attorneys is his concise, relatable guide for those struggling with student loan management, and it is the only student loan resource geared specifically to lawyers. He examines everything, from the impossibly bureaucratic loan system to the nuances of specific loan programs. He explores profession-specific repayment strategies unique to the legal field, and provides readers with the information they need to keep their loans in good standing, avoid negative consequences, and achieve debt freedom. Topics include: * The different types of student loans* The major players in the student loan system* Repayment options, including income-driven repayment* Loan forgiveness programs* Consolidation and refinancing* Strategies and tips for optimizing repayment* Guidelines on avoiding loan default* Detailed repayment roadmaps for specific law careers including big firm attorneys, nonprofit and government lawyers, solo practitioners, independent contractors, and associates at small and mid-size firms

If your ex-spouse owes you child support or alimony, this book will explain what your rights are and how to get the money you are rightfully owed. * Get what is owed to you * Learn why no money is no excuse * Do it without the expense of lawyer s fees The estimated amount of unpaid child support in America runs into the billions of dollars. Even highly conservative sources say that at least 10 percent of non-custodial spouses don t pay their child support, yet the vast majority of spouses who don t pay their child support are not broke: they just claim to be! The struggle to obtain what is rightfully yours - financial support from your ex-spouse - can be fraught with tension, anger, and compromise. This book will make available to you the most powerful tool in collecting past-due child support and alimony without wasting thousands of dollars in legal fees. This book focuses on two important issues: 1. how to secure your share of your ex-spouse s pension benefits earned during the marriage, and 2. how to obtain past-due alimony and child support payments from your ex s pension, profit-sharing, or 401(k) savings plan. It explains the best-kept secret under United States federal law: the Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). A QDRO is the legal document necessary to obtain direct payments from your ex s retirement plan(s). If you were awarded a portion of your ex s pension benefits or if your ex is currently delinquent in child support payments, this book will be an invaluable resource. It covers topics such as: * What is a QDRO and why do I need one? * What are the different types of QDROs? * How much of the pension am I entitled to receive? * Am I entitled to receive my share of the pension for my entire lifetime? * Is it too late to draft a QDRO now, even though my divorce was years ago? * Can I use a QDRO to obtain past-due child support and alimony?"
