Divorce is life-changing. In addition to the hurt and anger, many people are anxious about the legal process. We will work with you to take the fear out of the unknown by explaining the process to you in simple, easy to understand steps. We will work with you as a team to chart a path through the divorce process that is best for you and your family.
Dividing community property
During divorce, one household becomes two. The process of dividing property between spouses can have a major and lasting impact on each one's financial security. The best way to protect your financial interests is to consult with experienced lawyers who know the law, understand how the courts work and are committed to protecting your financial well-being.
You and your children may be entitled to support under the law. If your financial situation has changed since support was awarded, you may be entitled to change a prior support award. We will help you analyze your financial situation to determine the proper amount of support that should be awarded under the law.
Louisiana is a community property state. However, you can agree to remain separate in property. Anyone considering entering into a prenuptial agreement should consult their own independent lawyer who can help them review the agreement and make sure it is fair and balanced. We can also assist you in determining whether your prenuptial agreement is subject to being successfully challenged in court.
When child custody disputes turn ugly, your children can suffer. Instead of fanning the flames of an already tense situation, most of the time, a reasonable solution that protects your parental rights while putting your children first is what is best for your children and your family. We will fight for a solution in your case that helps you maintain a strong bond with your children.
