How can I get a bankruptcy court approval on a mortgage modification? 14 Answers as of June 11, 2013My ex filed chapter 13 on our house and I have to get the modification approved by the courts. Her attorney is no help. The bank has approved it and I am making the payments now and they want the courts okay to finalize the rate.

I would strongly recommend getting an attorney's assistance. Your house is too important to not do so. As for the prior attorney I would seek an explanation for the refusal to help. The fees your former spouse paid may have included such work.

Bankruptcy attorneys aren't going to help unless they get paid to perform additional work. We can't afford to work for free any more than you can. Obtaining court approval for a loan modification is additional work and if you want this work performed, someone will have to pay an attorney to provide this valuable service.

I would send a letter, along with documentation from the mortgage company, to her trustee. He or she may be able to help with the modification. If it changes your wife's income and expense figures, her plan will probably have to be amended.

You need to get your attorney to file a Motion to Approve Loan Modification pronto. Your Modification probably even states that you need to get the motion filed within a period of time. Expect to amend your schedules and your plan as well.
