At 1st California Law, Inc., we pride ourselves on meeting our clients where they’re at.

The best way to get started is by consulting with an Orange County student loan lawyer from our firm!

How do I know if I’m eligible for student loan discharge?

California is considered a part of the Ninth Circuit, which makes up several states in the Western U.S. In order to be considered eligible for student loan discharge, you must successfully pass the Brunner test. This test evaluates several different aspects of your circumstances.

The Brunner test requires applicants to meet all of the following criteria:

  • An inability to maintain a minimal standard of living if required to repay your loans
  • Proof that your financial circumstances will persist throughout your repayment period
  • Good faith efforts have been made to repay your loans

When evaluating the above criteria, the court may also consider your employment availability, age, average standard of living, the quality of your education, and whether you can sufficiently care for dependents. If you are considered ineligible for discharge, the court may lower your payments during your repayment period.
