I am a co-signer on three student loans for my children which all three went into default due to none payment.It resulted in me the co-signer filing a chapter 13 bankruptcy,because I could not afford the payments along with two mortages and other household expenses.ten percent of the 94,000 balance is being paid through the bankruptcy court.will the remaining balance be discharged from the co-signer and the debtors be persued for the remaining balance or will the co-signer still be held responsible for payment after the bankruptcy plan .It is to my understanding that an amendment was made in 2011pertaining to the title 11 bankruptcy fairness act of 2005.I would greatly appreciate some clarity on this in order to try to prepare for this situation.

Some creditors and collection agencies refuse to lower the payoff amount, interest rate, and fees owed by the consumer.
Creditors/collection agencies can make collection calls and file lawsuits against the consumers represented by the debt relief companies.
Debt relief services may have a negative impact on the consumer's creditworthiness and his overall debt amount may increase due to the accumulation of extra fees.
The amount which the consumer saves with the use of debt relief services can be regarded as taxable income.
