Ending a marriage is never easy, even for couples who might describe their divorce as “amicable.” Each spouse is about to embark on a new life journey, and if you have kids, their lives are changing, too. During this process of change, it is critical that you retain a law firm that will put your interests first, a firm that will protect you, your children and your assets in ways that allow you to move forward into a bright future.
Kaspar & Lugay, LLP is that law firm for couples in Walnut Creek and throughout Contra Costa County. Our divorce lawyers have decades of combined experience guiding people through the California divorce process. We are known for our commitment to helping clients achieve their divorce goals, whether those goals involve children, finances, family businesses, minimizing emotional stress, or any combination of these. Whether you are ready to initiate a divorce or need to respond to a spouse who has started the process, you can contact us anytime and we will explain how we can help.
Powerful, Effective Representation for All Divorce-Related Issues
Every couple is different and has different legal needs; no two divorces work exactly the same way. As one of Walnut Creek’s most trusted family law firms, we have the knowledge and experience to handle any type of divorce, no matter how contentious or how amicable, for clients of all backgrounds.
Contested or Uncontested Divorce
The strength of our firm is our ability to tailor our representation to your needs. If you and your spouse have conflicts that require a judge’s ruling, we will be by your side throughout the process of contested divorce. On the other hand, if you can reach a divorce agreement out of court, using mediation, negotiation or collaboration, this is called uncontested divorce and we will be your guide.
Child Custody and Child Support
If you have children, you can trust us to keep their interests front and center during your divorce. Our Walnut Creek attorneys will work toward child custody arrangements that preserve healthy relationships when possible. Likewise, if child support is involved, we will explain how the support amount will be calculated and whether any deviation from the calculation may be warranted in your situation.
Asset and Debt Division
The property division phase of divorce is crucial because the outcome will shape your post-divorce financial life. Whether you have a relatively simple marital estate or a very complex one with business holdings, multiple properties and assorted debt, our team will protect your financial interests at every turn.
Divorce doesn’t always involve spousal support (also called alimony), but when it does, it can become a serious source of conflict. We will work diligently to reach a fair outcome in your spousal support proceeding, whether you are the one seeking support or the one obligated to pay.
