Undoubtedly, it is much easier to avoid student loan debt in the first place. There are a few simple steps that can be taken to either escape student loan debt or ensure that the debt wonít be too hard to pay off in the future. Consider student loans only after you have researched all the sources of free financial aid. Many people who are eligible for financial donít even realize it and instead take out a student loan. If you are not eligible for financial aid and need to take out a student loan, be aware that there are three major types of student loans: Federal Family Education Loans, Federal Direct Loans, and Federal Perkins Loans.

Ask for help if you have trouble paying off your Student Loan Debt.
If youíre having difficulty repaying your loans, donít be afraid to talk it over with your lender or loan servicer. Generally, the earlier you ask for help, the easier it is to get it. If you are having trouble remembering to pay your student loan, ask a bank for help and they should be able to set up an automated paying service, where you wonít have to worry about writing a check. Or, consider asking for student loan debt consolidation, which will combine all your federal loans into a single loan.
How Pre-Settlement Lawsuit Funding Works
An injured person contacts a company that offers pre-settlement lawsuit funding, sometimes at the suggestion of an attorney. The finance company contacts the lawyer who is handling the case, and obtains information about the case. Based upon that information provided, the loan company estimates the value of the likely eventual settlement or verdict, and offers a cash advance to the injured person based upon that estimate. The fee may be a flat fee, or a monthly fee that accrues each month the loan is outstanding. When the case settles, or the defendant pays after losing in court, the loan and associated fees are paid to the finance company.

Stop Collection Agency Harassment
Owing a debt does not automatically subject you to harrassing, threatening and other inappropriate collection agency behavior. Some collection agencies go too far with what I call "renegade collectors" they will repeatedly call you at your home and/or business, threaten to send a marshall over to serve you with lawsuit papers or send intimidating letters, appearing to come from an attorney or law firm, stating that you will lose your car, wages and other property if you do not pay your debt! It does not matter that you failed to pay a debt or that you can not afford to pay your debt at this time no one should intimidate, threaten or harrass you or coerce you to give out personal or financial information. Inappropriate collection procedures can intimidate you into paying for costs that may not even be your responsibility.You are protected by the law from innapropriate collection procedures.
