Wells is not linked to the government and don't have to do a modification.  They will not have to lower your payment to your paycheck.

Consumers must qualify for modifications or look to other alternatives.

Call hope. they are awesome. 888-995-hope. they are free and they are linked to the government. so once registed with them. the lender has to listen. You have to have a job , though.
If you don't have a job, go get one at mcdonalds. they will have to lower your mortgage payment to go with the paycheck.

First, I'm sorry to hear about your situation and can assure you there are LOTS of people in your shoes.

There are several things you can do.

1. Contact LEGAL AID in your area and have their legal counsel send Wells Fargo a letter asking for a Loan Mod.

2. If that does not do the trick, hire you own attorney to deal with Wells Fargo.

P.S. I recommend Mackey Law Firm [content removed by moderator for being self-promotional]

Good luck and God Bless

Dealing with lenders and their well trained staff is difficult.  I would try a reputable loan modification company before you go futher in arrears.

I am sorry for your hardships.  Good luck to you.

It is not easy to get a modification.  There are a number of factors required to qualify.  

What is the reason you are behind?

I already tried to modify as well.  They are a hard institution to deal with.

With your mortgage currently behind, the only program to lower your rate/payments is a loan modification, if you have a hardship.  Otherwise, catch it up and try down the road when your credit is cleared up.
