Most people who are going through or contemplating a Louisiana divorce are exhausted emotionally and want to move forward. We will empower you with knowledge and professional guidance to protect you and your children during the resolution of your marriage. The resolution is ultimately memorialized in a written form called a Judgment or Property Settlement Agreement. It is essentially a written contract between the parties defining all of their rights and obligations after they are divorced.
The divorce judgment addresses such issues as:
- Child Support
- Child Custody, which includes legal custody and physical or residential custody.
- Child Visitation (called parenting time in Louisiana), which is awarded to the parent who does not have physical or residential custody
- Alimony or spousal support
- Equitable distribution of property includes houses, savings account, retirement plans, and all other assets.
It is important to remember that you are free to settle your differences with your spouse at any time, even before the filing of a lawsuit for divorce. It is also possible to break from your court proceedings and settle your divorce case. Our law firm’s goal, however, for our clients is to empower them by providing them an experienced lawyer who is knowledgeable of all family law and divorce laws and application to our client’s particular set of circumstances and needs.
