Default how to deal with student loan debt

hey all me and my fiancee are both 29 we met in college and have a lot of student loan debt, she was paying on hers every month a few years back until sallymae missed several payments (by not taking the amount out of her account) and blamed it on her and now her loans are in default cause she just gave up (not the first time it had happened)

my loans have been in default for a lot longer than hers and i have never put any money into it, i think the private loans have been forgiven or they no longer go after it i am not sure,

but lately after not having a decent full time job since 2010 i now make a decent amount of money but not enough to put money towards the student loans to try and fix my credit which is what i want to do

but whenever i talk to the debt collectors they will not budge on how much they want me to pay, i want to pay under 100 a month but they want 250-700 a month!

my question is how do i go about getting my credit back in line so we can get a house and really start our lives?

You can pull you credit report for free once a year. Get all three free at www.annualcreditreport.com

review them in detail. Note each creditor. You'll need to contact each of them to see what it will take to get them back in good graces.

Make sure that you have your budget figured out before talking about a repayment schedule. You'll need to make sure that you cover your basic needs first. With the left over money you make per month you'll use that to pay everyone back. You can use a Pro-rata (percentage of each debtor vs total debt) approach on repayment.

You can also check your credit score for free at CreditKarma.com. This will give you an idea on your credit score. If you're looking at buying a house, you'll need to make sure that you can not just afford the house, but also the repairs associated with them.

Yes, checking your credit report is very important. It will give you the true picture of your standing. You may come across accounts or elements that don't belong to you. In that case, you'll get an opportunity to report it with the Credit Bureaus.

Please answer the remaining 2 posts and update the report.

I think you should analyze your financial situation and chalk out a plan to save money.

I would first make a plan for how to pay off debt and save money. Decide where you need to be credit wise and make sure you always make your credit card payments.
