  • It depends, contact a financial institute and ask them.

  • It'll depend on the parents credit score.

  • Perhaps- it depends on where they go to get the loan, and how long ago the foreclosure is. I'm sure there is someone that would be willing to give the loan- but the terms might be outrageous.

  • If your child has filled out a FAFSA then all you have to do is fill out the loan part and it will tell you whether you have been denied or not. I qualified for a loan for my daughter and I am currently looking for work and have debt from my divorce.

  • Don't know the answer but I have heard time and time again to NEVER co-sign for your child's loan.
