His student loans should've been deferred because we are low-income and can't afford to repay them now, but he didn't get the paperwork in right or whatever and they went into default. its gotten to the point where they not only sent it to a credit collection agency but they might take it out of our income taxes next year! He will not just call and figure this out though, and its really screwing up his credit (which was not that good to begin with)! Is there anything i can do? i have tried talking to the collection people that call but they say they can only talk to him... MY student loans are in deferrment and we don't have the same last name or co-signed on anything so i don't think its gonna affect MY credit rating, but still it is really worrying me. :(Answer Question

If you have a job and file income taxes, file a separate income tax form. That way you will get your refund and he can deal with his mistake then.
