The federal government passed protections for some student loan borrowers. Crescent Care has an explainer on what the various new laws do to help borrowers who are unable to pay their loans.
If you still have questions, contact your student loan service provider.
If you are low-income and need legal representation related to a COVID-19/coronavirus pandemic issue, Acadiana Legal Service Corporation and Southeast Louisiana Legal Services provide free legal assistance to those that qualify. Please do not visit legal service providers in person during this time. Due to the virus, all organizations are encouraging people to contact them over the telephone, or by applying for services online.
If you are looking for general legal resources (not specifically about the pandemic) for self-represented litigants and people in court without an attorney, including referrals to free and low-cost legal representation, please check out the Law Library's online guide.
The Law Library hopes you are staying safe and if you need further assistance, don't hesitate to call us at 504-310-2400 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Though we are not physically in the library, we are still answering reference questions via phone and email quickly!
