Dedicated To Protecting The Rights Of Clients In Divorce

Divorce can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. The dissolution of a marriage involves a complex web of emotional, familial, financial and legal issues with long-lasting consequences. When children are involved, divorce becomes more emotionally driven and complicated raising the additional issues of custody, visitation, child support, grandparent’s rights.

With or without children, divorce often involves the complicated issues of division of property and spousal support. To protect what is important to you, it is best to work with a firm with the experience and reputation of the Law Office of Laura L. Davenport.

The Basics Of Divorce

In Louisiana, if there are no children, the divorce process takes at least six months. If there are minor children involved, the divorce process takes over a year. However, under some special circumstances, such as physical abuse and adultery, a party may obtain a divorce in less time.
