Divorce Attorney

Divorce is never simple, even in straightforward situations. But, if you work with an experienced lawyer whom you trust, this process can often be very seamless. At the Law Office of J. Louis Watkins, III, this is exactly what we try to do. Make divorce as straightforward as possible so you can move on.

Led by Terrebonne Parish divorce lawyer, we are committed to providing personalized legal services for our clients. When you come to us, we take time to explain the legal issues of your case, the process of how to file for divorce and how divorce affects other family law issues such as legal separation, custody and child support.

Divorce In Louisiana

Louisiana is a no-fault state for divorce, and there are essentially four ways to get a divorce. The situations include:

  • Adultery by one spouse
  • Conviction of a felony offense by one spouse
  • Both spouses deciding to live separate and apart for six months (a year if you have minor children)
  • Filing for divorce and then living separate and apart for six months (a year with minor children)

When you come into our office, we will review your situation and decide how to proceed. Mr. Watkins will help explain how custody and visitation, and child support affect the divorce process and work to create an effective custody agreement that works for your family.

Spousal Support And Property Division

Spousal support and property division are two major things that our clients are concerned about. In Louisiana, there are two types of support, interim and permanent support. Interim support may be awarded while one spouse is trying to get a job or make a living. Permanent spousal support (which is rarer) can then be awarded for a specific or indefinite amount of time.
