Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Program

The 43rd Judicial District Residential Mortgage Foreclosure Diversion Program is an effort by the Court of Common Pleas to address the increasing number of property foreclosures in the County.  

Initiated in December, 2010 by the Administrative Order of then President Judge Ronald E. Vican, the program became effective on January 1, 2011. The primary objective of the program is to provide a streamlined, unified process for the resolution of mortgage foreclosure proceedings through Court intervention, housing counseling, and conciliation conferences.  In addition to the efforts of Judge Margherita Patti-Worthington and Judge Arthur L. Zulick, both of the Court of Common Pleas, the Monroe County Commissioners, the Monroe County Bar Association, the Monroe County Sheriff's Office and several non-profit consumer credit counseling agencies play a substantial role in this effort.
