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.
Sometimes, life doesn’t go as planned, and you find yourself facing a divorce or separation from the one you had planned to spend your life with. This is a difficult situation, and you will find yourself facing tough choices and decisions - and all while emotions are running high
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 will make sure that you are aware of your rights, and walk you through every step to help secure the best possible outcome.
Intrafamily adoption is a special adoption process that permits relatives to adopt a child within their family.
The most common type of intrafamily adoption is “Stepparent Adoption” which occurs when stepparents adopt their spouse’s children.
But, intrafamily adoption can also apply to aunts, uncles, first cousins, grandparents, step-grandparents, or other family members who meet qualifying criteria.
No matter your situation, our Metairie intrafamily adoption attorneys will guide you through the process to ensure you obtain a legal intrafamily adoption.
Community Property Division
Louisiana law operates under a strong presumption that all debts and assets accumulated during a marriage are “community property”.
Our family lawyers can assist with any issues or concerns surrounding the division of marital property, as well as any marital debt.
