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 you and your children.

Equitable Mediation Co-Founders

What our clients are saying about us:

Joe, I am grateful to you as an example of integrity and compassion, and would recommend you without reservation as a guide and support. Your divorce coaching services bring even more value to your firm's fine work. I wish you [and Cheryl] both great success!

- M.B., Short Hills, NJ

As a stock broker, my income is highly variable. Joe’s outside the box thinking on alimony and child support was key to us coming to agreement on this difficult issue.

- K.M., Chatham, NJ

Who knew you could fairly and equitably divide a horse farm? With Joe’s help we were able to not only reach agreement but peacefully ride off into the sunset.

Expert Divorce Mediation near Short Hills, NJ

While it’s critical you work with an expert Short Hill divorce mediator with the proper skills and training, don’t underestimate how important their knowledge of the local area is, too.

For example, how it’s common for couples who live in Summit or Chatham to work in NYC. And how to design a parenting plan around a complex work schedule or what to do if one of you wants to move to the city, post-divorce to be closer to your job. Not to mention the significant variations in real estate values in Maplewood or Milburn.

Working with someone who understands living in this part of the Essex County area can be the difference between a generic mediation agreement and one that’s tailored to you and your family’s unique needs.

We know that taking the first step is a big decision.

But if you and your spouse live in the Short Hills area, have both decided to divorce and want to use mediation to peacefully and cost-effectively end your marriage, book an initial meeting for the two of you today.
