Statewide Foreclosure Mediation Process Model

The Wisconsin Network Model adopts the successful features of the original Marquette University Law School Program (the Milwaukee Foreclosure Mediation Program – MFMP):

  • Voluntary entry for both homeowner and lender
  • Both Homeowner & Lender Participants pay the program fee, with due dates appropriately sequenced.
  • Mediator role is as facilitator, not a decision maker, and is neutral and impartial in all respects
  • All communications are confidential and privileged
  • Scope of mediation topics include retention options or graceful exit strategies

New features of the model include:

  • Limited withdrawal from the mediation process, allowing for a resolution with assistance of mediator
  • Use of a secure online portal to transmit modification packages and messages
