Helping Families Through Transition

When a legal issue such as divorce or child custody affects your family, expect strong emotions on each side. The decisions you make will have a long-term impact on your relationship with your children and on your finances. You need an experienced attorney to craft a solution that will meet the best interests of your family today and into the future.

Our law firm has helped families in transition since 2006. We believe in education and demystifying the law. We will share the knowledge you need to make informed decisions that fit your needs.

A Client-Focused Hammond Divorce Attorney

Our attorneys provide individualized counsel, which includes a discussion of the costs associated with each available option. Our law firm can help you with:

  • Divorce matters, including spousal support along with community property partitions and settlements
  • Child-related issues such as child custody, visitation schedules and child support
  • Establishing paternity to protect visitation rights
  • Juvenile law representation

Each family is unique. While some solutions can be reached through mediation and a divorce agreement, others require a trial. Our firm has the breadth of experience to assist you with initial negotiations and all the way through to trial when necessary.

Adoption Attorneys Serving Tangipahoa Parish And Livingston Parish Areas

When a child becomes part of your family, we can help with the legal aspects of intrafamily adoption - a stepparent adoption or grandparent adoption - or traditional private adoption. We will explain the process and help you efficiently navigate each step along the way.

Based on your individual circumstances, we can help with the difficult process of getting consent from a biological parent. In other cases, it may be necessary to terminate parental rights to open the way for adoption.
