Our Areas of Practice

In some situations, divorcing couples are unable to resolve matters through mediation or negotiations. Such matters must be litigated…


Cohabitation Agreements are becoming more and more common as more people are living together without the benefit of marriage…


Many people think that as soon as they are married “what’s mine is yours and what’s yours is mine.” But that is not exactly what the law says. Married people can have separate property and sometimes there are good reasons to keep it that way…


Like a prenuptial agreement, a postnuptial agreement can head off disputes over money by forcing the spouses to think about and agree upon these matters before disputes arise…


Child custody laws in Louisiana distinguish between legal and physical custody of a child. Legal custody refers to the responsibility to make major life decisions for a child, and physical custody refers to where a child will primarily reside…


Child support is a payment made by one or both parents to the other to help with the cost of looking after the children. In some situations, it may be paid by one or both parents to another person who is looking after the children…


Spousal support, previously called alimony in Louisiana, is the legal term for money one spouse or former spouse may be required to pay the other spouse after divorce. While spousal support may be set for life, it is generally awarded for a specific period of time…


Adoptions can be intra-family, stepparent or third party adoption. Our team of attorneys has experience in all areas…


Divorce mediation is a voluntary process where divorcing couples work together with a trained mediator to negotiate and resolve their differences in a non-adversarial forum…


Many couples are able to resolve their differences without undue acrimony and without professional help. But the process of reducing their agreement to paper and the further step of obtaining a divorce based upon their agreement is more than they are able or willing to undertake…


We help clients assert their rights and interests in community property, always working to ensure assets are protected and distributed fairly. We can also handle property division issues as an aspect of mediation…


We assist clients in the modification of child custody, support, and spousal support orders, as well as the enforcement of court orders when a parent or former spouse is not meeting his or her custody or support obligations…
