Helping clients help themselves
Vega Acosta Law believes that every case should start with the belief that alternative dispute resolution techniques can be used to resolve cases in a way that achieves the greatest amount of success for all parties involved. For that reason I like to educate and encourage clients to consider mediation and collaborative divorce options.
By considering collaborative or mediated divorce options, clients increase their satisfaction and sense of empowerment during your divorce process. Through mediation clients are able to address the many questions that arise during a divorce and work through them together. Any issues, on which the parties do no agree, can then be left for litigation before a judge. In handling a divorce in this manner, clients spend less time and money on litigation while empowering themselves to create solutions that will fit their family’s needs.
Normally, when clients think divorce, they envision two parties battling it out before a judge. While contested divorces do require judges to make difficult decisions on the futures of families, it is not the only way in which divorces can resolve themselves.
I believe that clients deserve options and the ability to decide about their futures. For that reason, I educate my clients about the various methods of completing their divorces. Alternative dispute resolution options like mediation can put the power back in clients hands. Through mediation, you and your spouse can discuss concerns with a neutral mediator who helps you to evaluate various ways to address it.
Mediation has been proven to work even in cases where the parties believe that no common ground exists. As of 2014, both the 8th and 21st judicial districts of Kansas (Geary and Riley County, respectively), have mandatory mediation for a family-based civil cases. With years of family law experience, I can work as either lawyer or mediator to help you achieve your case goals.
If you are facing a family law matter such as divorce or legal separation, then you need skilled representation on your side as soon as possible. It is vital to the success of your legal proceedings that you understand the various issues that could arise in your situation and let us protect you from being taken advantage of by your ex-spouse, opposing counsel, or another party.
For example, in divorce, there are many issues that must be resolved, such as property division. If you are unsure as to the legal process, then you could be left with highly undesirable circumstances at the conclusion of these proceedings. With the proper representation, you can confidently handle any family law matter and pursue a brighter future for yourself and your family.
