Marin Spousal Support / Alimony Attorneys

Protecting Finances In Spousal Support Disputes

Spousal support, commonly called alimony, is not automatic under California law. Conflicts may surface related to need and what amount is fair and reasonable in a given set of circumstances.

California law recognizes two forms. Temporary spousal support is available before the divorce becomes final to maintain the status quo while the case remains in family court. Permanent spousal support can be agreed to by the parties or ordered by the court, but it is important to get it right at the time of divorce. Seeking a post-dissolution modification of spousal support is very difficult.

A determination of permanent spousal support guidelines involves more than a simple mathematical equation. If the parties are unable to settle their differences, the court will weigh many factors including the length of the marriage, the relative income of each party and the standard of living each party enjoyed during the marriage.

Diligently Taking The Steps Necessary To Protect Your Finances

In many ways, the most important step in evaluating spousal support and child support matters is identifying the assets involved in the marriage. Our lawyers are accomplished in knowing how, and where, to look for hidden assets and hidden income in an asset search. In order to properly calculate spousal support matters, the numbers upfront must be appropriate. In addition, tax implications can play a role, and we ensure clients do not receive an unpleasant tax surprise down the road.

As skilled negotiators and experienced trial attorneys, we help our clients move forward with confidence following divorce. We aggressively guard the interests of our clients in negotiations and court proceedings, whether that means obtaining a fair spousal support award or limiting the amount of a spousal support obligation.

Update: Case Closed! I just want to say thank you to the whole Kasper and Lugay Team! Brent got The “W” in my case. They worked hard on my child custody battle and were super flexible with my payments! Anyone that’s going through a separation knows the stress courts can bring, but Brent and his team made sure to make everything fast and easy as possible for me! Thank You Again! I hope I never have to go through something like this again but if I ever do I know who to call!

I hired Brent Kaspar & his team to assist me in the dissolution of marriage from my wife of 9+ years and love for 14+ years. This is obviously not any type of experience anyone want to go through, however I wanted the best direct & logical approach as the emotional & financial sides of this transition are difficult enough. Brent impressed me immediately with his knowledge of the process as well as his experience with every local attorney, mediator, judge, and whomever else I may be faced with addressing.... I would want him on my side.

My case was not simple or easy. After 5 years, my ex-husband, decided to try and terminate all alimony on a 26 year marriage, as well as obtain funds from me....The process with Brent Kaspar and this entire group was very thorough as well as methodical to achieve the end goal. Although there is always a high amount of stress when dealing with any legal matter, these individuals as are excellent at their jobs, relentless on getting information, light hearted when need be, and strong willed when dealing with others legal nonsense. We were able to settle prior to court and obtain/protect what I intended.
