Types of Family Law Cases:
Family law issues may present themselves in many different ways including:
- Divorce and Spousal Support
- DIVORCE: Whether you're contemplating divorce and wish to learn more about the dissolution of marriage process or the military divorce process, we can let you know what is required to get divorced in Louisiana.
- Child Custody and Visitation
- CUSTODY & VISITATION: A negotiated custody arrangement is always preferable to what a judge would decide. We advise both parties to work out all potential custody and visitation issues that work for them, while always keeping the best interests of the child at the forefront of the discussion. We assist with considerations such as relocation, modifications and grandparents' rights to visitation.
- CHILD SUPPORT: Child support is scheduled in Louisiana. While other factors such as any special needs of the child can affect the basic child support obligation, child support is calculated by a table that takes into account the incomes of both parents.
- Alimony/Spousal Support
- ALIMONY/SPOUSAL SUPPORT: There are two main types of alimony in Louisiana: alimony pending during the litigation (alimony pendente lite) and permanent alimony (until the recipient spouse should remarry or pass away).
- Property Settlement
- PROPERTY SETTLEMENT : The legal issues in property settlement can be more complicated than any other area of family law. We help analyze the division of assets and debts under the community property rules. We will also assist you if you have concerns about unique issues such as hidden assets and the division of retirement accounts.
Each area of family law brings complex and evolving legal issues. For that reason, it is important that you have a knowledgeable attorney on your side. CALL US AT (318) 855-0285 OR fill out our FREE CASE EVALUATION to speak with an Attorney today.
