Mortgage Modification Mediations (MMM) in all U.S. Bankruptcy Courts of Florida
The Mortgage Modification Mediation (MMM) program was established by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court under Administrative Order 14-03.
“The goal of MMM is to facilitate communication and exchange of information in a confidential setting and encourage the parties to finalize a feasible and beneficial agreement with the assistance and supervision of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida.”
“Mortgage Modification Mediation options include modification of a mortgage or surrender of real property owned by an individual debtor(s).”
Who is eligible to participate?
“Individuals who have filed for bankruptcy protection and currently have a case pending under any chapter…”
How can I request the MMM?
“Unless otherwise ordered by the Court, requests for an order of referral to MMM must be filed within 90 days from the date of filing the Voluntary Petition.”
Who chooses the mediator?
“The parties shall, in consultation with one another, select a mediator by the later of (i) the Reconsideration Deadline, or (ii) 14 days after the entry of an order denying the motion for reconsideration, if a timely motion for reconsideration is filed (such period of time, the “Mediator Selection Period”).”
Who pays for the mediator?
“Mediators shall be paid equally by the parties as follows: (a) Unless the debtor’s case has been accepted as a pro bono case, the debtor shall pay a non-refundable fee in the amount of $300.00 directly to the mediator within seven days of designation of the mediator. A debtor may request a mediator to serve pro bono only if debtor’s income is less than 150% above the poverty level. (b) The lender shall pay a non-refundable fee in the amount of $300.00
directly to the mediator within seven days of the designation of mediator.”
