Spousal Support

Determining Finances Is Often Complicated

Hardworking men facing divorce face a major concern about preserving their earnings and assets. If you are a husband or father  facing divorce in south Louisiana, there is no need to pay unfair or unnecessary support,  Laura L. Davenport can assess your situation and offer straightforward solutions to ensure that payments are reasonable and to protect your financial future.

Protecting Your Rights And Preserving Your Assets

While Louisiana laws require calculation based on the financial needs and economic standing of both spouses, support rulings are often biased in favor of women. A dedicated, hardworking and aggressive attorney can protect your rights and financial standing. There are two types of spousal support in Louisiana:

  • Interim spousal support: Temporary support that can be awarded to a spouse during the proceedings and for six months after a judgment of divorce; and
  • Final spousal support: Permanent to semipermanent spousal support.  This support may be modified or terminated if a change in circumstances occur, such as remarriage, retirement, or decrease in pay, occurs

Pre-planning can reduce interim spousal support. With an in-depth knowledge of the law and a passion for defending men’s rights in family law disputes, Laura Davenport seeks effective solutions to build strong cases for husbands and fathers throughout the Lafayette-Acadiana area.

In order to be awarded final periodic spousal support, a divorcing spouse must prove they are free from fault in the demise of the marriage. Laura L. Davenport assists her  clients to gather the evidence needed to build a solid case. Some factors involved in proving fault are adultery, abandonment, defamation, addiction, or even  a spouse’s quarrelsome disposition.
