Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation Program

The Nineteenth Judicial Circuit Court of Lake County is pleased to announce FREE housing counseling and mediation services. You may be able to save your home!

Help Save Your Home

If you are a homeowner of residential real estate and a mortgage foreclosure case was filed against you on or after December 2, 2013, you may be eligible to participate. If you are a homeowner who missed deadlines or whose case was filed before December 2, 2013, you may ask a judge to refer you to our program if you meet certain criteria.

To participate, you must call 847-377-3552 within 42 days of receiving a summons and complaint to discuss eligibility and to schedule a housing counseling appointment.

In mediation, a neutral, court-appointed mediator will facilitate discussion to help you and your lender reach a meaningful solution. These free services are offered by the Lake County Courts with support from Resolution Systems Institute, a nonprofit organization. Housing counseling services are provided by the following nonprofit, HUD-certified agencies: the Affordable Housing Corporation of Lake County, Catholic Charities Lake County, and Consumer Credit Counseling Services of Northern Illinois.
