My wife has Sallie Mae loans for schooling that she took. Since then she has had medical issues come up that prevent her from working. Therefore she has no way to make money to pay off these loans. Due to her circumstances is there any way to get out of paying these loans?

It is possible for student loans to be discharged due to hardship if a person will never be able to work. An issue will be whether she took out the student loans when she had the medical issue that's currently preventing her from working. If she has other debt and is interested in a bankruptcy, a request for a discharge of the student loans can be done in the bankruptcy court.
