Family Law

Our attorneys have extensive experience in all aspects of family law. We handle difficult cases involving a variety of family law issues, including divorce, child custody, child support, alimony (temporary and permanent), community property, adoption and cases falling under the Uniform Interstate Child Custody and Support Enforcement Acts. Although we travel throughout Louisiana to handle cases, we primarily litigate cases in Terrebonne, Lafourche, St. Mary, Assumption and Ascension parishes.

Our attorneys keep up to date with the latest changes in family law and attend annual continuing legal education seminars specific to family law. Joan M. Malbrough is a certified family mediator, and is certified to handle collaborative divorces. Our staff is trained to handle issues which require immediate attention. The attorneys and staff are experienced in crisis intervention. All attorneys are experienced with immediate custody orders in situations where children are in danger and in obtaining civil warrants when parents refuse to follow custody orders.

All attorneys have extensive experience in partitioning community property. We have a network of experts in various fields who work with us to provide appraisals for movable and immovable property, and to evaluate small businesses and partnerships.
