This type of requests is not considered to be very polite, please have a

I guess (because you are not telling us) that you would like to have an 
estfun() method for "lmer" objects. I don't provide one in my sandwich 
package (where the estfun generic is taken from) and AFAIK there is 
nothing analagous readily available in "lme4"... But I guess that you 
should be able to extract/compute the empirical estimating functions from 
the fitted "lmer" object.

When you compute
it returns a "logLik" object that has a "df" attribute:
   attr(logLik(fm1), "df")
