Family law matters are inherently emotional and personal. Whether it’s a faltering marriage, adoption, support or visitation, it’s important that you have an experienced ttorney to help you negotiate the legal system. At The Law Office of Wolff & Wolff, our attorneys provide thoughtful, professional representation.
Divorce: Louisiana is a “no-fault” divorce state. That means you will not have to demonstrate a specific harm to move forward with a divorce filing, and the court understands “irreconcilable differences.”
While the courts offer a no-fault option, fault-based divorces can also be obtained. These can be based on adultery, felony convictions, abandonment, abuse and estrangement among others.
Child Custody & Support
Family court judges make decisions about custody and placement based on the best interests of the child. The general wisdom is that children benefit from strong relationships with both parents, and courts value consistent visitation. However, when a parent poses a risk or engages in illegal or illicit behavior, the courts may restrict or revoke visitation.
Both parents are expected to provide resources for their child, and failure to meet those obligations could have serious legal ramifications. In Louisiana, child support is based on both parents’ gross income, the number of children and other important factors.
