Child Custody and Parenting Time/Visitation
We handle all types of child custody issues for our clients. We understand the emotional aspects of child custody, for both parents and children, and do our best to reach outcomes that are healthy for all parties. Our clients include divorcing spouses, unmarried parents, stepparents, grandparents, and more. We are experienced in all aspects of initial custody and visitation determinations, modifications of existing custody arrangements, paternity, adoption, and much more.
Division of Assets and Debts
Aside from issues involving children, the division of property is perhaps the most hotly contested issue in divorce. You may have a relatively simple marital estate involving a home and bank accounts. Or, you may have a very complex portfolio of financial holdings like businesses, investment accounts, rental properties and vacation homes, restricted stock, car collections and other assets. Any debts that you have must also be accounted for and dealt with. Kaspar & Lugay, LLP provides sophisticated, strategic representation for all aspects of asset and debt division. One of our partners is a CPA as well, so you can be confident in our financial literacy.
Child Support and Alimony/Spousal Support
Child support and spousal support can easily become contentious. We represent parties seeking support as well as those who may be obligated to pay. Our services include initial support determinations, modifying existing support orders, and seeking or challenging enforcement actions. Our clients span a wide range of socioeconomic backgrounds and professions.
Prenuptial and Postnuptial Agreements
Couples sometimes decide to be proactive about deciding what should happen with their children, property and even their pets in the event of divorce. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements allow couples to specify how they want these things handled, rather than turn them over to the uncertainty of a courtroom proceeding. These agreements, however, must be very carefully drafted and meet very specific legal requirements, otherwise they will be invalid. Our attorneys are able to draft pre- and postnuptial agreements for clients, and we are available to review agreements that have been drawn up by others.
Unfortunately, far too many people are victims of physical, emotional, psychological or financial abuse at the hands of a spouse or partner. Another unfortunate reality is that some people make false allegations of abuse against their spouse or partner. Our attorneys represent abuse victims as well as those who have been wrongly accused. We have extensive experience in handling domestic violence restraining orders (DVROs), dependency hearings and all other matters related to abuse claims.
