Adultery Divorce



You just found out your spouse has cheated on you and your marriage is over.

If you have just found out your marriage is over because of infidelity, you are probably feeling disoriented. Feeling that way is natural. When you find out that someone you have been living with--your lover, your best friend, your companion--and possibly even your home and livelihood are all gone, it turns your world upside down and it sometimes makes it hard to just think. A strategy for getting through those difficult first few days is to simply focus on the tasks that are immediately ahead of you. Make a list of what you have to accomplish today, and focus on that each day for the first few days, whether it be a place to live, means to survive, or paying the bills, putting it in writing will make it feel less daunting. One thing that is very important at this stage is that you have good legal advice. Your spouse may have talked to you about what your rights are, or maybe even about what your spouse's responsibilities are to you and the children, but your spouse may not be giving you good advice in that regard. Know what your rights are instead of having to guess what they are, again, is very important at this stage if for no other reason than to give you the confidence to get through the things you are going to have to deal with over the next few weeks and months. I am a Hammond adultery divorce attorney, and I am here to protect you, your children and your property. If you have just found out your marriage is ending and want to know what your rights are, please call me on my mobile phone at (985) 320-6554 any time, E-mail me, or stop by my office. We will take the time to get you through this difficult time so you can move on with your life knowing your best interests are protected.


The Divorce Process in Cases of Adultery

You may not know where to start, and that is understandable. Clients contact me with questions regarding their financial future, their living arrangement, child custody, and property and debt division issues. I provide guidance through these issues, and I know there is not a "one-size-fits-all" approach. Remember that Louisiana is a "no-fault" divorce state, meaning proving adultery is not necessary in order to get a divorce. I will help you review and understand your rights, as well as the responsibilities of a cheating spouse. If you have children, the divorce process will take longer - a little over a year, but the time for divorce finalization is reduced if no children are involved.


 You have a story to tell, and I can help you be heard. As your lawyer, I will defend you, your liberty, your rights and your reputation aggressively, and have tools at my disposal to uncover the truth when a spouse has been unfaithful. E-mail me, call me at (985) 310-6900 / (985) 320-6554 or stop by my office. I will take the time to discuss your legal matter and address your concerns.

If it matters to you, it matters to me.

Child Custody Lawyers



If you have just learned that your marriage is over, its likely your biggest challenge is simply trying to think straight. Very few people truly understand the paralyzing mixture of fear, anger, betrayal, hopelessness, and confusion that the ending of a marriage can create. Your life partner, friend, and confidante is gone and may very likely be an adversary to you. Your entire world has changed, and you don't know where to start. In the midst of the mental and emotional challenges, and just trying to get through life, decisions have to be made, and under the worst possible conditions.


In order to make good decisions, for you and for your family, you need good information, you need to know your rights, and you need a plan. If there is a legal fight and your spouse or former spouse is trying to take advantage of the situation, I know how to deal with that, too.


I work with men, women and families before, during and after the divorce process, from the initial filing through post-judgment requests for modification or enforcement. As a child custody lawyer, I also handle all matters related to visitation, child support, alimony or spousal support, property division and paternity actions.


I also work extensively with clients involved in Office of Community Services (OCS) cases, where there are concerns about child abuse or neglect. I handle Families in Need of Services (FINS) proceedings as well as cases involving attempts to terminate parental rights.


As your attorney, I will defend you, your family, your rights and your reputation aggressively. Please call me at 985-310-6900 or email me.
