I am recently married and we filed our taxes jointly without considering how it would affect my wife's student loan repayment.

She is on income driven repayment and previously qualified for a much lower payment we could afford. 

Fast forward a year with my job and now they want us to pay +$400 monthly. which we can't afford with my debts as well.

is there anything we can do to get her payment lowered?
