Divorce and Separation
Our Metairie divorce lawyers compassionately guide people just like you…those making tough decisions and facing tough life choices…through one of life’s toughest battles – divorce. And, we welcome the opportunity to guide you.
Our divorce attorneys can help you with all aspects of your divorce including legal separation, property division, alimony/spousal support, child support, and/or child custody.
Facing a child custody battle is never easy, and an already painful situation can be made worse if you are unsure of your rights or unfamiliar with legal procedure.
Our Metairie child custody lawyers can help you with all of the legal issues related to child custody and visitation.
Intrafamily adoption is a special adoption process that allows relatives to adopt a child within their family.
The most common type of intrafamily adoption is “Stepparent Adoption” which allows stepparents to adopt their spouse’s children. Intrafamily adoption can also apply to aunts, uncles, first cousins, grandparents, step-grandparents, or other family members who meet qualifying criteria.
Our Metairie intrafamily adoption attorneys will guide you through the process to ensure you obtain a legal intrafamily adoption.
Community Property Division
There's a strong presumption under Louisiana law that all assets and debts a couple accumulates during the marriage are community property.
Our family lawyers can assist with issues surrounding the division of marital property and debt.
