Is Equitable Mediation a franchise?

No! Absolutely Not!

We know there are divorce franchises out there, but to us, franchises are better-suited to fast-food, not divorce.


What’s with all the offices?

Divorce is stressful enough and from the day we started our mediation practice, our philosophy has always been to meet our clients where they are to make their divorce mediation as convenient as possible.

We have access to local, private meeting spaces which allow us to serve a broader community of divorcing couples who want and need our services, instead of only being limited to a single office location.

Oh, and in case you’re wondering, we limit the number of clients we take on at any one time to ensure that all of our clients get the most responsive and best service possible.


How can you practice in all these states?

Believe it or not, the issues that need to be resolved in a divorce are the same no matter where you live!

You’ve got to develop a plan to raise your kids (parenting), figure out how you’re going to share in the cost to raise them (child support), determine if one of you needs financial support post-divorce (a.k.a. alimony, spousal support, maintenance or spousal maintenance, depending on the state), and divide up your property and debts (equitable distribution or community property).

And while there are subtle nuances in how the issues are resolved from state-to-state, the majority of what needs to be accomplished is the same.

Naturally, we’ve taken the time to research the issues in each of the states we practice in. And we continue to stay abreast of updates and changes to these issues in a variety of ways that range from professional membership organizations, conferences, seminars and state-related publications.


I live in a state in which you practice but you don’t have an office near me. Can we still work together?

The answer is: Yes!

You can use our online mediation format (we call it Mediation-On-The-Go or virtual mediation) and still get the same great results.

In fact, our clients love the convenience so much that 90% of them choose to mediate with us this way, even when we have an office near them.


This all sounds great so how do I and my spouse get started?

That's easy. Book an Initial Meeting for the two of you!

Want your divorce to be peaceful, fair and cost-effective?

Going through a divorce will likely be one of the most significant and stressful life events you will ever face. But finding a qualified professional to help you shouldn't be the hardest part of it.

Lucky for you, it doesn't have to be!

To start the process, book an initial meeting for you and your spouse.
