I owe $10,000 on student loans. Due to job demand, I have to move to Europe. Now, my question is, what can happen if I don't pay off student loans and leave the country?

Do you owe federal student loans or private student loans? If you have federal student loans, then it's better to pay it off before leaving the country. If you don't pay off federal student loans, then it may lead to garnishment of wage, Social Security benefits, and tax refund. Private student lenders will sue you once you default on loans.

In case of a private student loan, the lender might sue you if you do not pay them.

Try to repay the loans before leaving the country.
