Welcome to Equitable Mediation

A Peaceful Divorce is All About Choices.

Going through a divorce will likely be one of the most significant and stressful life events you and your spouse will ever face.

It’s not only devastating emotionally, but the divorce process itself, if not handled properly, can be long, drawn-out and damaging to everyone involved, including your children.

So if you or your spouse lives in NJ or Illinois, what can you do to make sure that doesn’t happen?

You can choose to work with the expert divorce mediators at Equitable Mediation.

If you and your spouse both agree to divorce and want it to be peaceful, fair, child-focused and cost-effective, take the next step and  book an initial meeting for the two of you.

Equitable Mediation: A Complete Divorce and Mediation Solution

The issues in a divorce have less to do with laws and more to do with money, emotions and paperwork.

That’s why our divorce and mediation services are specifically designed to cover all important aspects of your divorce:

Legal, Financial, Emotional and Operational.

  • We’ll educate you on the relevant laws so you can make informed decisions that are right for you and your children.
  • We’ll help you come to fair and equitable agreements on child support, alimony, and the division of your assets and liabilities using our extensive knowledge of divorce finances.
  • We'll provide you with much-needed emotional support. You’ll have unlimited access to our Divorce Coach throughout the mediation process to help overcome any conflict that may arise during your negotiations and/or to help you manage the intense emotional upheaval that often accompanies divorce.
  • Unlike other divorce mediators, we are fully involved from start to finish, actively guiding you through our complete and thorough divorce and mediation process. We can even provide assistance facilitating the administrative filing of the divorce if needed.
  • You can choose to work with our divorce mediators how and where you want either virtually or in-person.
  • And you’ll know upfront what you’ll pay with our all-inclusive, flat-fee mediation services to eliminate the anxiety of unknown mounting legal fees.

You'll have everything you need to ensure your divorce and mediation goes as smoothly as possible from start to finish.

"Joe, I just wanted to tell you that we appreciate how you and Cheryl both were so professional and helped us through this difficult process. You even managed to make us laugh a few times. We truly benefited by your team approach. Thank you."

No other divorce option comes close to the advantages that mediation provides.

  • Mediation enables you to complete your divorce in less time, with less stress and at a lower cost - without lawyers. Allowing you to peacefully end your marriage in months instead of years, while saving thousands on your divorce.
  • Divorce Mediation is the most child-focused of all divorce options. You’ll make decisions as mom and dad, not plaintiff and defendant. So you can both be actively involved in your children's lives.
  • Mediation allows you to create an agreement you both find fair. Neither spouse can “win” at the expense of the other because the terms of your settlement must be acceptable to both of you.

"Thank you for helping us reach a fair and balanced agreement. I guess that's why you're called Equitable Mediation!"

Divorce Coach Cheryl Dillon

Divorce Mediator Joe Dillon

We know first-hand how devastating divorce can be because our lives have been affected by it, too.

That's why we mediate each case personally and do everything we can to make divorce less expensive, less time-consuming and less stressful for our clients and their children.


“Dear Joe,

I am writing to thank you for the mediation process that “D” and I went through with you. Getting a divorce is hard enough but I am happy to say I am glad we found you and found out about mediation. It was definitely the way to go for “D” and me.

At first I was unsure of the whole process, but after meeting with Cheryl for the initial meeting and having her explain exactly what mediation is and how we go about it, I was relieved to hear how much simpler of a process it is without getting attorneys involved.

You made every meeting very comfortable and you were able to solve every issue that came across our plate, without us fighting or killing each other. You also made sure we covered every base and we didn’t leave out anything.

Thanks for all you did for making a horrible time of our lives a much easier one to get through. I appreciate everything you did!”

- L.D., Princeton, NJ


“Hi Cheryl,

Thank you for the continued kindness you and Joe have shown during this entire process, it has no doubt made this journey easier to endure. When one door closes...

I do feel that all our paths are crossed in life for a reason and I am indeed glad that ours did.

I wish you both the best and again, thank you for all your hard work and thoughtfulness."

- N.R., Wheaton, IL



You and Cheryl definitely have a way of taking the edge off a difficult process. From start to finish I always felt like I was in good hands.

Knowing up front how much our mediation was going to cost helped "K" and I focus on what really mattered. Instead of worrying about if every time we picked up the phone we were going to get a bill!

It's obvious that the two of you care a lot about the people you work with and what you do so thank you."

How To Find a Good Mediator

You want a divorce. And you want to mediate. Which is more than I knew when my ex-husband and I made the decision to end our marriage. We hadn't ever heard of mediation. All we knew is we wanted to get a divorce and we didn't want to involve attorneys. Or go broke in the process. A friend told me about mediation and luckily, my divorce...Read More
