Other than the decision to divorce itself, there is no single more important decision than hiring a divorce mediator who has the skills and expertise to successfully guide you through your divorce negotiations.
And the best divorce mediator isn't necessarily the one who has an office closest to your home.
The mediator you choose will play a critical role in:
- How well your divorce will go - financially and emotionally;
- How thorough your agreement will be;
- How fair and equitable your agreement will be;
- How long your divorce will take to complete;
- How likely you'll need to return to court in the future to try to resolve an issue that wasn't addressed properly (or at all) during the time of your divorce.
Thank you to you both (Joe and Cheryl) for a smooth and hassle-free mediation.
We really appreciate how organized your business runs, it really helped to relieve any additional emotional stress.
Thank you for helping us reach a fair and balanced agreement.
I guess that's why you're called Equitable Mediation Services!
Equitable Mediation’s process was very easy and I would go the mediation route again.
It was good working with Cheryl and Joe and we saved a lot of money and conflict by not involving lawyers.
I'm glad we chose to work with Joe and Cheryl instead of lawyers.
Equitable Mediation Services was definitely a more civilized way to go.
1. You both want to get a divorce or separation.
We suggest you book an initial meeting once you and your spouse have both made peace with the decision to divorce or separate.
2. You are both willing to consider mediation as a viable option for your divorce.
If you and your spouse are both willing to put aside your differences for the sake of your kids and truly commit to working through the terms of your divorce, book an initial meeting.
But if your spouse doesn't want to divorce, is still resentful or blaming you and only agreed to attend the meeting because you pressured them into it, skip booking an initial meeting and (sadly) hire an attorney instead.
3. You already learned about divorce mediation basics, our company, and our flat-fee mediation services.
This will help ensure our time together will be as informative for you as possible.
4. You are both ready to start the divorce mediation process.
We suggest you book an initial meeting once you and your spouse are both ready to actually begin the divorce mediation process.
You and your spouse don't have to be in the same location together unless you choose to be. You just need to be someplace quiet and private where you have access to a telephone and a computer or tablet with an internet connection.
There's nothing to download and no distracting video - we'll provide a link to a specific website and you'll enter the password we give you. This way, you'll be able to see visuals to illustrate the information we are sharing with you.
It's as simple and convenient as that!
Note: If your kids are at home, and you don't want to risk them overhearing our conversation, let us know and we can utilize our chat feature. This way, you don't have to speak out loud during the meeting.
