Northwest Justice Project: Foreclosure Mediation in Washington State


A basic introduction to Washington’s new mediation process for homeowners facing foreclosure. Current as of December 2011. You can help us make NJP’s videos better! Please let us know what you thought about the video by answering this brief survey:

Welcome to the Northwest Justice Project’s webcast about Foreclosure Mediation in Washington State.

The foreclosure process can be a long and bumpy road… but some people facing foreclosure in Washington now have another path to stay in their home: Mediation.

Your bank or mortgage company now must tell you about your new options before foreclosure. After you miss a few payments, you should receive a written “Notice of Pre-Foreclosure Options.”

You then have thirty days to ask for a meeting with your bank to talk about alternatives to foreclosure. This first meeting is not mediation, but if you and the bank don’t agree on a plan, an attorney or housing counselor can help you take the next step: asking for mediation.

You have to have a referral from an attorney or counselor to get to go to mediation. If you haven’t talked to a housing counselor or attorney about your options, do it right now. He or she can discuss whether you qualify and then send a mediation request form to the state’s Department of Commerce.

Find more information on housing counselors from the Homeownership Resource Center at 1-877-894-HOME. You may also get a referral or qualify for free legal help from the Northwest Justice Project. Call 1-800-606-4819.

After the request is sent, watch your mailbox. You should get some important instructions, and a list of documents you’ll need to bring to the upcoming mediation. Try to hustle and gather the paperwork together. Your attorney or housing counselor can help you. You must send copies of your documents to the bank and mediator at least 10 days before the mediation day.

You and the mortgage company will split the cost of the 0 mediation fee.
To avoid foreclosure, you’ll have to do some more homework. Mediation is your chance to show why you should stay in your home. You’ll get to explain why you fell behind. And you’ll also have to show a detailed financial plan showing how you’ll keep up with payments in the future. Talk to an attorney or housing counselor for help on writing up your proposal.

It’s important to have a realistic proposal; you probably won’t be able to stay in your house If you don’t have enough income to pay even a reduced loan payment.

On the day of your mediation, show up early. Bring all your documents and extra copies. So, who’s going to be in the mediation room? The bank’s attorney will be there… and another person from the bank (probably on a speaker phone). Your attorney or housing counselor might be there, or you can bring a friend or family member for support. And of course you’ll be there.

And then the mediator— the mediator is kind of like a judge. She won’t take sides between you and the bank. But unlike a judge, she can’t order you or the bank to do something. It’s okay to ask the mediator questions about the process or the bank’s documents if you don’t understand.

When the mediation starts, you will have time to show your documents and explain your proposal to pay. Be completely honest if you get asked any questions.

Then someone from the bank will tell the bank’s side of the story. The bank will have math calculations to show how much it would cost the bank to foreclose compared with allowing you to stay but with a reduced loan payment.

If you don’t make a new payment agreement, be prepared to discuss your other options such as a later move-out date or short-sale. You should talk about these options with your housing counselor or attorney before the mediation so you’re ready.

If you and the bank agree on a new plan, make sure you understand exactly what you’ll owe, and when. You can ask the mediator to help put it in writing, and have everybody sign it for proof. Your new payment plan may include a trial period to make sure you can really make the reduced payments. These are the most important payments you will make, because if you miss one, you won’t get a full loan modification and the bank may start foreclosure again.

Stick to the plan, though, and you may be able to stay in your home.

Listen as Linda Gruszynski explains what mediation is and how it relates to the divorce process in Florida.

Family law cases in Florida generally go to mediation. Mediation is the process in which an impartial third party sits down with both parties and their attorneys in an attempt reach an agreement on some or all of the issues in the case.

In Florida, if any portion of your divorce case remains unsettled you will go to mediation prior to the trial where the case is finally decided. The mediation must have occurred within six months prior to the trial. If your previous mediation occurred before that timeframe, you may have to attend again, so divorce cases that take a long time to resolve may be in mediation on multiple occasions. Watch the video to learn more.

If you have additional questions regarding the mediation process, I want you to call me at (407) 846-0075. I welcome your call. Visit our educational website at http://www.DraperLawOffice.com, where you can view more videos and media content from our law firm.

The People’s Court September 11, 2013 “Breaching of Agreement Between Two Parties” P5

Posted on in Sunshine Coast Mediation Specialists

The People’s Court  September 11, 2013 “Breaching of Agreement Between Two Parties” P5


The People’s Court is the first court show to utilize tying mediation, bringing the configuration into the class in 1981. The framework has been copied by a large portion of the show’s successors in the legal classification. Also, The People’s Court is the first well known, long-running reality in the legal class. It was gone before just by a couple of fleeting substances in the class; these brief antecedents were just inexactly identified with legal incidents, aside from one: Parole (1959) took footage from genuine courts holding lawful processes. Preceding The People’s Court, the lion’s share of TV court shows utilized performing artists, and reproduced or anecdotal cases (as did radio before that). Among illustrations of these sorts of court shows incorporate Famous Jury Trials and Your Witness.

The People’s Court has had two incarnations. The show’s first life was managed singularly by previous Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Joseph Wapner. His residency kept going from the show’s presentation on September 14, 1981, until May 21, 1993, when the show was scratched off because of low ratings.This left the show with a sum of 2,484 ½-hour scenes and 12 seasons. The show was taped in Los Angeles amid its first life. In the wake of being wiped out, reruns broadcast until September 9, 1994.

On September 8, 1997, in the wake of being out of creation for four years, The People’s Court was resuscitated for a brief moment life in first-run syndication as a 60-moment program. Previous legal advisor and Mayor of New York Ed Koch was picked as authority, which he kept up for 2 seasons. By the 1999–00 season, previous New York State Supreme Court Judge Jerry Sheindlin succeeded Koch. Sheindlin just kept going one and a half seasons and was supplanted towards the end of the 2000–01 season. In spring 2001, Milian assumed control over The People’s Court and has directed the show after.

DIVORCE -DO NOT LITIGATE — BE SMART — CHOOSE MEDIATION
Don’t make the mistake of suing your spouse to end your marriage! If you think about it, the very concept is absurd. If you were ending, for example, a 12 year business partnership, 99 times out of 100, all you would have to do is sit down with your partner — divide up the assets — divide up the liabilities — shake hands and part ways. Ending a marriage can be done the same way. It is a bit more complicated because there can be issues of child and spousal support, but the important point is that it doesn’t have to be a battle! The expert mediators at Liaise can help you and your spouse navigate through the complexities and arrive at an agreement that is the negotiated blueprint for ending your marriage. That agreement is presented to the Court and becomes the Judgment ending your marriage. You never have to appear in Court. You save 10s of thousands of dollars. You don’t ruin your family by engaging in a huge fight and you are better able to get on with your life.

Divorce -Do Not Litigate — Be Smart — Choose Mediation
So like Yogi Berra says, don’t make the wrong mistake and don’t forget that the mental part is half the battle.
Do yourself, your family, and your financial wellbeing a favor and choose Liaise Divorce Solutions, LLC to help you navigate the treacherous waters of managing the expensive and painful situations of dissolution. Call Liaise Solutions at 415-399-8824 or visit http://www.liaisesolutions.com

Texas Mediation

Texas Mediation


Mediation is one way to settle your divorce case without having to resort to fighting everything out in court. In mediation, both sides are usually separated in two rooms. The mediator, who acts as a referee, is someone who is well-qualified in settling family law disputes. He or she facilitates settlement by taking proposals for settlement back and forth between the two parties in an attempt to reach an amicable agreement.
