Bankruptcy generally does not absolve you from student loan responsibility. Unfortunately, you signed the contract, and that interest is not going to go anywhere. I would recommend looking into income based repayment. That program probably makes the most sense for you.

As you live in Buford, Georgia and probably low-income, I would suggest that contact Gwinnett Legal Aid in Lawrenceville, Georgia for assistance. They may suggest other options for you after reviewing your case.
