the Residential Eviction Mediation Program
DuPage County Eviction Mediation Program:
The 18th Judicial Circuit eviction mediation program is
designed to help mitigate the surge of evictions resulting from the COVID-19
pandemic, and the ensuing economic fallout. Its chief goal is to assist tenants
and landlords in avoiding residential eviction and pursuing mutually beneficial
alternatives. The program seeks to avoid exposing DuPage County families to
homelessness during a serious health crisis, while also helping landlords
mitigate losses during the extraordinary circumstances that have precipitated
the need for this program. Finally, it is also designed to aid the
administration of justice by promoting judicial efficiency.
Mediation can help you avoid eviction:
Mediation is a process where a neutral third party, a
trained mediator, helps landlords and tenants communicate to resolve issues
through voluntary, mutual agreement. Both parties can speak with legal and
housing counseling agencies to gather resources and better prepare for
mediation. If you have an attorney, they may attend the mediation with you.
This program is free, confidential, and available to tenants and landlords in DuPage
County. If you reach an agreement in mediation, you can then enter that
agreement in court. If you do not reach an agreement through mediation, your
court case will proceed.
