Family Law in the New Orleans Metro Area

I can't say enough about Nancy. My ex-wife is a lawyer, and when she demanded sole custody of our young daughter, I didn't think I stood a chance. Boy was I wrong. Nancy got me the exact joint custody arrangement that I wanted. And she cost so much less than I expected. I now am able to participate in my daughter's life like I never expected. Nancy really cares. -SB Laplace

Our Services!

  • Child Custody

    Louisiana child custody laws are complex and confusing, with the state recognizing several distinct, yet in some cases partially overlapping, types of custody.

  • Relocation

    Many parents are surprised to learn that the Louisiana laws prevent even the custodial parent from relocating a minor child outside the state — or even more than 75 miles away within Louisiana — without the consent of the other parent or the courts.

  • Visitation

    Visitation rights can be a very touchy subject, especially when two parents are deeply estranged from one another.

  • Child and Spousal Support

    Child support and spousal support are distinct and separate financial arrangements, and yet the two are often illogically linked in the minds of former partners after a separation or divorce.
