Free Legal Help for Homeowners Facing Forclosure

What: FREE LEGAL HELP!  For homeowners facing foreclosure.  Help available in English and in Spanish. 

Who: For homeowners who have received a Foreclosure Summons and Complaint.

When: 11:00 am - 1:00 pm. Thursday, January 5, 2012 (recurring event, 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month)

Where: City-County Building, 3rd floor, 210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. 

Volunteer lawyers and law students are available to meet with Dane County homeowners in foreclosure.  Homeowners can receive basic legal information and free help at the Foreclosure Answer Clinic.  Experience shows that homeowners who engage in the court process early have better opportunities for a positive outcome.

Time is of the essence because homeowners generally have only 20 calendar days from the date they receive the initial lawsuit papers to file a formal response.  Lawyers and Law students at the clinic can provide homeowners with the information they need to file a response.  Homeowners can also find out more about the legal process, the Dane County foreclosure mediation program and other community resources. 

No appointments are necessary.  Homeowners should bring their summons and complaint as well as any other relevant papers about the foreclosure.
