recasting


Explanation:
From the EuroDicAutom :

French Term refonte
English Term recasting of a book
French Term refonte
English Term re-melting
French Term refonte
English Term melting
French Term récriture;ré-écriture;adaptation;revision;refonte
English Term rewriting

So there is the idea of redoing, revising, melting down.

And from the GDT :

refonte (finance) = recasting

Here are a few sources of the term in action, as it were :

http://www.state.ne.us/legislative/statutes/R/44/16/R4416003...

The amount of insurance on the life of any debtor shall at no time exceed the amount owed by such debtor which is repayable in installments to the creditor. Where the indebtedness is repayable in one sum to the creditor, the insurance on the life of any debtor shall in no instance be in effect for a period in excess of eighteen months, except that such insurance may be continued for an additional period not exceeding six months in the case of default, extension, or recasting of the loan.

http://www.mosessinger.com/resources/creditprotec.shtml

The fact that the unlimited exemption for the cash surrender value of life insurance that exists in some states can be abused by dishonest debtors has been considered by the bankruptcy court and appropriately disregarded as a basis for judicially recasting the import of the exemption statutes
