Divorce in Louisiana
Our team takes a unique approach to working with all clients. We have experience handling divorce cases that involve support and alimony, cases that involve children, custody and child support issues — as well as those involving businesses and complex asset division. We take time to help educate you about the divorce process in Louisiana and what the courts consider when making decisions on alimony (sometimes called spousal support), property division, child custody and more.
Ms. Johnson works to make the negative impact of divorce as minimal as possible for you and your family. She is proactive in negotiating to reach a fair settlement for her clients and has significant experience litigating in the courtroom.
Louisiana is considered a community property state with regard to asset division, which means that property acquired during the course of the marriage is not separate property, but “community property.” Assets and debts are divided fairly between spouses, which may or may not be 50-50. It is important you work with a lawyer who is knowledgeable of property division laws and how to deal with issues concerning both separate property and community property. We offer our clients a broad range of skills handling all types of property division issues.

Your kids are an extremely important part of a separation or divorce. Every parent wants the best for his or her child and wants to mitigate the negative impact of changes to the child.

We are ready to provide the support you need during changing times.

Child Custody and Visitation
A knowledgeable lawyer will take time to work with parents to develop an agreement that is not always necessarily 50-50. The courts will look at a number of different factors when awarding custody, but always keep the child’s best interests in mind.
In addition to handling child custody issues, we have experience working with unwed parents who need assistance with establishing paternity and child support. We have handled all types of custody-related issues and have been successful in establishing creative/unique agreements.
Military Child Custody
Military families have unique needs. These are needs that our firm has experience dealing with. Ms. Johnson has worked with mothers and fathers, service members and spouses in issues concerning military custody. She can even work with parents who are deployed.
