  • If my granddaughter defaulted on paying a student loan, how long, as a cosigner, am I obligated to pay?

    My grand-daughter is in the National Guards, she has defaulted on making payments on a student loan, and as a cosigner, I have to make payment. Can I go to the National Guard to get her to pay. Unfortunately I did not get a promissary note, but ...

    Sean’s Answer

    You as a co-singer guaranteed the debt of your granddaughter.

    The student loan company may choose to go after your assets. If you are only receiving social security/pension benefits and have no other assets (i.e. house), the loan company will only be able to take a small portion of your monthly social security/penison benefits.

    I suggest talking to your son or daughter and getting your granddaughter to do the right thing. The National Guard provides emergency benefits to soldiers and this may be a good option.

  • If a University accepts a child and knows this child need housing are they then obligated contractually?

    They have just informed the child a week before school starts that they have ran out housing. No other university is going to accept him at this time

    Sean’s Answer

    I suggest contacting the school and seeing if they will compensate for the difference between the cost of on-campus housing versus off-campus housing. Also, it may be good idea to talk to the other incoming students. Often you will have an orientation day and during orientation it is possible to have your child find a roomate.

    Additionally, contact the other schools he was accepted to. I bet they still have spots even if you didn't pay the deposit.

    Check Craigslist also. You often can find roomates on the site.

    now i want to divorce from her , can i file my divorce in newyork here

    Sean’s Answer

    You may file for divorce in NY. You need to meet the residency requirments and also serve your wife. Call a local NY family attorney and they will be happy to assist. If you need a referral - I suggest Zoltan "Andy" Simon. He can be found on this site or you can contact him at: zoltansimonesq@gmail.com. His office is on Wall Street near the exchange.

    Contact a local attorney immediately. The best bet for these type matters is to retain a former D.A.
