Metro Milwaukee Foreclosure Mediation

The Metro Milwaukee Foreclosure Mediation program provides voluntary mediation services to residential homeowners and lender-servicers who are parties to a foreclosure action filed in Milwaukee County Circuit Court OR Waukesha County Circuit Court.  All mediations are confidential, conducted by a licensed attorney, include a mandatory referral to a housing counselor, and require a minimal fee. Mediation does not replace or stay the legal foreclosure action, but can assist in resolving the foreclosure action in a manner acceptable to both parties, including the possibility of an alternative financial payment arrangement. Contact 414-939-8800 or visit www.mediatemilwaukee.com.
