MEDIATION INFORMATION FORM (For cases with a Return Date of 10/1/13 or later) JD-CV-135 Rev. 8-13 C.G.S. § 49-31l, PA 13-136 STATE OF CONNECTICUT SUPERIOR COURT JUDICIAL BRANCH www.jud.ct.gov ADA NOTICE The Judicial Branch of the State of Connecticut complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If you need a reasonable accommodation in accordance with the ADA, contact a court clerk or an ADA contact person listed at www.jud.ct.gov/ADA. The Court's Foreclosure Mediation Program is set up to help eligible homeowners and their lenders or mortgage servicers see whether they can reach a fair and voluntary agreement under the supervision of a neutral mediator employed by the Court. The program addresses all aspects of the foreclosure including any assistance options that may be available through your lender or mortgage servicer to help you 1) keep your home, or 2) gracefully exit from your home by way of a short sale, deed-in-lieu of foreclosure, or negotiated sale date or law day. The objectives of the mediation program are: · To determine whether the parties can reach an agreement that will either: 1. Avoid the foreclosure by means that may include programs that are available through your lender or mortgage servicer; or 2. Expedite or facilitate the foreclosure in a manner that is acceptable to both you and your lender or mortgage servicer. · To reach this determination with reasonable speed and efficiency, with both parties participating in the mediation process in good faith, without unreasonable and unnecessary delays. What you must do: 1. Fill out the Appearance form and Foreclosure Mediation Certificate. These forms are included in this packet. You must file them with the court no later than 15 days after the return date. The return date is printed on the upper right part of the Summons form in this packet. You do not have to come to court on the return date. The court cannot notify you of the date and time you must come for your first premediation meeting until you file these forms. 2. Mail a copy of the Appearance form and the Foreclosure Mediation Certificate to the Plaintiff's attorney at the address of the attorney or law firm on the Summons form, and to any other party who has filed an appearance in your case. 3. Start gathering documentation so that you will be prepared to meet with your mediator. Lenders typically request copies of the following documents: Proof of Income · Wage/Salary Income -- Pay stubs covering the last 30 days. · Self-Employment Income -- Profit & Loss statement for the most recent quarter or year to date, signed and dated. · Benefit Income -- Most recent award letter (social security, disability, food stamps, pension, public assistance, adoption assistance). · Rental Income -- All leases with signatures. · Alimony/Child Support -- If you rely on this income to pay your mortgage, Court order showing the amount of alimony and/or child support that you receive. · Contribution Income -- Contribution letters from all non-borrowers who are related to you and live with you, signed and dated by them, and proof of their income. · Federal Tax Returns -- Personal returns with all schedules for the last 2 years; copies of business returns, if applicable; copies of IRS tax filing extensions, if applicable. · Bank Statements -- Personal bank statements for the last 2 months and business bank statements for the last 4 months if self-employed.

Within 35 days from the return date, your lender or mortgage servicer will mail you a packet of forms, their list of required documentation, and other information about your loan or your property. A copy will also be sent to your mediator. Upon receipt of this packet, complete the forms provided, gather any additional documentation on the list, and bring the completed forms and documentation to your scheduled premediation meeting with your mediator. You can read more about this meeting in the next section below. Do not mail the completed forms and documentation to the court. The Mediation Process If your return date is October 1, 2013 or later, the Foreclosure Mediation Program will consist of two stages: · Premediation -- During this stage, you will meet one-on-one with a mediator to review your financial information and to discuss possible options. If necessary, the mediator will assist you in completing forms and gathering the documentation required by your lender or mortgage servicer. The mediator may also refer you to other resources that can help you, such as the housing counseling agencies listed on the attached Notice of Community-Based Resources. You may have one or more meetings with the mediator, but premediation will end approximately 12 weeks from the return date on your Summons. At the conclusion of premediation, the mediator will ensure that your documentation is delivered to your lender or mortgage servicer or its attorney, and will determine whether mediation with your lender or mortgage servicer will be scheduled. If the mediator determines that mediation will not be scheduled, mediation will terminate. If mediation has been terminated, you may ask the Court to be included in mediation if you think the mediator has made a mistake or if you have had a change in circumstances. If the mediator determines that mediation will be scheduled, you will receive notice of the date and time of your mediation in the mail. The first mediation will be scheduled no later than 5 weeks from the date your forms and documentation are delivered to your lender or mortgage servicer, or its attorney. · Mediation -- If mediation is scheduled, you will meet with a mediator and a representative of the lender or mortgage servicer and its attorney to review any assistance options that may be available to you through your lender or mortgage servicer. You may be asked to submit additional documentation as part of the mediation
