Can I get my name taken off of a student loan that I co-signed?

Question Details:

I co-signed a student loan for my step-son, and he is constantly late in paying. Now 52 days past due. Due to a falling out with his father, my step-son will not talk to me. This is taking a major toll on my credit rating. How can I get my name off of the loan of $7,250? Is court my only answer? If so, how do I go about it? I don't have the money for a lawer.
