Modifications in Bankruptcy:
Sometimes there are advantages to seeking a modification after a Chapter 7 bankruptcy or during a Chapter 13 bankruptcy. Sometimes the bank will be more willing to work with you after you receive a discharge of your debts. In Chapter 13, the court orders a modification mediation and orders the bank to cooperate. This can be a big advantage if the bank is giving you the run around because the court can hold the bank accountable.
