In California, a community property state, all assets and income of the family unit is the subject of consideration for the payment of the debts of student loans. If student loans are in default status and the indebtedness of the spouses dies the debt does NOT necessarily die with the borrower. Depending on the value of the marital assets, the claims can be placed on real estate and other assets to pay to heal, subsidized and unsubsidized federal student loans.
