Regional Organization of the Foreclosure Diversion Program

The Foreclosure Diversion Program has been implemented regionally, utilizing the judicial regions established by the Supreme Judicial Court in Administrative Order JB- 08-1. The courts designated below will manage mediation-eligible foreclosure cases during the diversion process, i.e., from the scheduling of an informational session (if one is ordered) through the conclusion of mediation. Cases not resolved by mediation will be transferred back to their court of origin once mediation is complete.
