QUESTION: What is the undue hardship exception?
ANSWER: Undue hardship is what you must prove in order to forgive your student loans. Undue hardship involves three things. First, you must have no money left over each month to repay your student loans. Second, your money problems must show no signs of getting better in the future. Third, if you ever had extra money, you used it to repay your student loans.
