Efficient, Effective Solutions For Complicated Family Law Matters

Family law often involves issues that can easily become an emotional battleground.  Decisions made from anger, frustration, or fear can jeopardize your family relationships and your financial future. As a skilled and knowledgeable attorney, I work in your best interest to help prevent you from making mistakes. Though I represent both men and women, I have a special interest in helping fathers through this process.

A south Louisiana divorce and custody lawyer, Law Office of Laura L. Davenport provides efficient and effective legal solutions that serve the client’s best interests and provide optimal outcomes for the client and their families. I use an honest, straightforward approach and give my clients as  much control over their case as possible. I am upfront about the benefits, disadvantages, costs and length of proceedings in every case.

A Proactive Approach To Protect Fathers’ Rights

If you are a father facing a divorce, your rights, your children’s rights and your property are at risk. Family courts often favor mothers, putting fathers at an unfair disadvantage. As an aggressive advocate for fathers’ rights, I can help ensure your custody and visitation rights are protected and your child or spousal support payments are fair.

I take a proactive approach when dealing with divorce, spousal support, child support and child custody disputes.  I make you aware of the legal intricacies involved throughout the process.  It is important to know your options so you can make informed decisions before you act. The Law Office of Laura L. Davenport can help you develop a strategy that takes both present and future needs into consideration.

Choosing The Path That’s Right For You

Divorce does not have to be a battle. Mediation or settlement is often a better choice for many who face divorce and custody issues, saving time, money, and the emotional cost of litigation.  As an attorney and mediator, I can help you through the mediation process.

I can educate you on the time and cost-saving benefits of settling your divorce through mediation, but I am also prepared to carry a case through litigation when necessary. As a licensed addiction counselor in Louisiana, I offer a unique level of experience and understanding beneficial to cases involving parties with substance abuse and addiction issues.
