Divorce

The decision to divorce is one of the toughest that you will make in your life. Filing for divorce to formalize your decision does not have to be horrible or overly complicated. You need an attorney who will level with you and explain your options in plain English.

Brett K. Duncan & Co., is a family law practice that focuses on education. You can find answers to initial divorce questions that we often hear from clients. Since 2006, we have walked numerous clients through the divorce process in the Hammond, Louisiana area, including Tangipahoa Parish and Livingston Parish.

Common disputes that arise in divorce cases include:

  • Spousal support (commonly referred to as alimony) - The ability of one party to pay and the other party's need based on the standard of living during the marriage are initial considerations. For more information on the topic, review our Spousal Support FAQ page.
  • Child custody and visitation schedules, along with the amount of child support
  • Division of property and debts - Louisiana follows a community property model.

Our lawyers are accessible - clients receive their cellphone numbers and personal email addresses. If you have a question or an emergency, you can trust that you will be able to reach them.
