We have had success at mortgage modification in Chapter 13 cases ever since the program was offered in the Northern District of Florida Bankruptcy Court. Recently, Mr. Wohlsifer joined the Mortgage Modification Mediation program in the Middle District of Florida Bankruptcy Court, as well, having recently moved to the Tampa Bay area.
Our office can accommodate all means of appearances whether by phone, video conferencing, Zoom, or Google Hangouts, but by far most parties appear in Mortgage Modification Mediation by phone.You may CLICK HERE to begin the scheduling process.
The Mediator’s fee is set by the Court at $500 ($250 per party) for two one-hour mediation sessions. There is no charge for Mr. Wohlsifer’s time coordinating the mediation session on the DMM portal, nor for reviewing any pre-mediation material submitted. Cancellation fees are also governed by the Bankruptcy Court.
A cancellation is considered timely if it is received by the mediator and all parties no later than 14 days prior to the scheduled mediation date. Mortgage Modification Mediation is conducted in accordance with Chapter 44, Florida Statutes, and Northern District Local Rule 16.3. The mediation process is subject to confidentiality.
