It’s hard enough to be facing the end of your marriage. Now throw in a global pandemic and you’ve got a seriously surreal and terrifying situation on your hands.
You’ve been told to shelter in place, forgo socializing, and work from home. All these directives are disruptive and have one thing in common – put your life on hold! But if you’re like most of our clients, you’ve been thinking about divorce for at least 2 years - and possibly longer.
So now that you’ve finally gotten up the courage to take that next step and begin your mediated divorce, THIS happens - yet another facet of your life appears to be put on hold.
It doesn’t have to be that way.
During these unprecedented times, many service providers are scrambling to get online. And divorce mediators are no exception.
But it takes much more to effectively mediate a divorce online than simply obtaining the technology to do so.
Going through a divorce will likely be one of the most significant and stressful life events you will ever face – global pandemic aside. But finding a qualified online divorce mediator to help you shouldn't be the hardest part of it.
Be well, stay safe, and just know we’re here and have the skills and resources to support you - whenever you and your spouse are ready.
We're all in this together!

At the beginning, I assumed that online mediation was essentially a "lesser" option for those couples wanting to save money. Looking back on it now, I actually believe that online mediation is probably MORE effective than in-person mediation.
Not being in the same room as your ex-spouse, and not seeing his (or her) facial expressions during the discussions, probably made the discussions a lot smoother than they would have been if we had been mediating in-person.
Equitable Mediation took traditional divorce mediation and flipped it on its head.
Mediation-On-The-Go is fresh, modern and a great choice for busy divorcing couples!
I didn't know how we'd be able to do this based on "B's" work travel schedule.
Mediation online helped us get through the process in much less time than I thought would be possible.
Between your demanding jobs, managing the house, and the kids’ online schooling, homework and activities, there’s no doubt you’re strapped for time. Now take your already hectic life, and add a divorce into the mix.
You need a convenient way to get a divorce. But while the concept sounds appealing, there’s no way you’d even consider using one of those useless “quickie online divorce” providers.
What you really want to do is mediate because you know mediation will get you a fair and thorough agreement tailored to your unique needs and circumstances.
But given everything else you're currently juggling, you’re not sure how you’ll find the time to get to the mediator’s office. Leaving you to wonder - is there any divorce option out there that combines convenience and quality with conflict resolution?
You use technology in your everyday life to make things easier. You can make a call, check e-mail, pay bills or surf the web from just about anywhere on the planet.
So why, then, when it comes to an alternative dispute resolution process for divorce like mediation, do you need to be sitting in the same room with your mediator and your husband or wife, hashing out the details of your settlement agreement?
Technology has advanced so much in recent years. And paved the way for us to offer a divorcing couple like you and your husband or wife an expedient, professional and cost-effective way to complete mediation. And we've been doing so for more than 10 years with great success, so we know it works!
By combining the convenience of online divorce with our high-quality divorce mediation services, our Mediation-On-The-Go program is the best solution for today's busy couples.

Divorce is less about family law and more about parenting, money and negotiation. So before you go out and hire a divorce lawyer, learn why you owe it to yourself and your children to work with a mediator instead.
