17th Judicial Circuit Court - Foreclosure Mediation

Welcome. We're here to help!

The 17th Judicial Circuit of Illinois’ Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Mediation Program provides a unique opportunity to aid families throughout Winnebago and Boone Counties who are in foreclosure.

Mediation is a process where a neutral third-party (a trained mediator) helps borrowers and lenders communicate to explore options available to a homeowner.

While not every mediation resolves the foreclosure, the process can give homeowners an opportunity to speak directly with a representative of their lending institution and may generate options for resolving the foreclosure, including possible loan modification and other available options.

If you have been served a residential mortgage foreclosure complaint, which could cause you to lose your home, in a case filed on or after June 1, 2014 in Winnebago County, or in a case filed on or after November 1, 2014 in Boone County, the Foreclosure Mediation Program may be available to assist you. You must submit a completed application found below within 21 days of being served a complaint to be eligible for the Program.

Get Started. Once you’ve created a profile and completed an application, the program will contact you about your next steps. If you require assisance call 815-708-6490 to speak with a represenative from the program.
