student loan default can they take my house?

by rob
(las cruces, NM)

I had the title of my house transferred to my girlfriend, because I am 20 years older than her and wanted the house to go to her if I died before her, which I probably will.

I am just about to default on a student loan. Can student loan go after the house If we decide to marry?

If there is anyway to keep your student loan out of default, we recommend you try to do so. We know it's not easy, but once it goes into default then you'll end up with substantially higher costs.

If you cannot keep it out of default, then we recommend you talk with a bankruptcy attorney to find out what property may be at risk if you default.
