The Divorce Process in Louisiana

The process of filing for divorce in Louisiana starts when one spouse, known as the petitioner, goes to the courthouse at the local parish and files a petition for divorce.  The following information will assist you if you are planning on seeking dissolution of marriage in Louisiana in the most inexpensive manner possible.

Grounds for Divorce

In Louisiana, a divorce can be on the grounds of “fault” – such as adultery and criminal reasons; or “no fault” which means the marriage was filled with too many problems that allowed the marriage to continue.

When you live in Louisiana and are seeking an attorney that can get you through the divorce process, you need the assistance that a Louisiana attorney can offer you.

Filing a petition for divorce has one ultimate goal—and that is the goal of getting relief.  Hiring a proficient attorney is what will aid you in achieving that goal of relief. Relief regarding how to separate property amicably and decide how child custody will be shared, and if any child support or alimony should be paid or collected by either party.

Requirements for filing divorce

In Louisiana, a couple who wishes to file a petition for divorce is required to meet the requirement of living “separate and apart” for a certain number of days prior to the divorce finalization.  If there are children involved this requirement is one complete year (domestic violence cases excluded), and couples who have no children must wait 180 days for their divorce to be finalized.

Family Mediation

In Louisiana, many couples seeking dissolution of marriage also want to save as much money as possible so they opt for out of court proceedings by settling through mediation.  Family mediation is the process where both parties involved in the divorce agree to settle regarding child custody, child visitation, child / spousal support and marital property division through the aid of a mediator. 

The Breedlove Law Firm takes the act of family mediation one step further by giving it the name “Cooperative Family Mediation.”  This is a session in which each party is encouraged to listen, not only just hear what is being said by the other person.  This approach is taken with the belief that if each party is open and honest with each other during the divorce proceedings, everyone will be able to get all their feelings aired and a settlement can be reached. This process will take everyone’s concerns into account; resulting in a much more mutually agreed upon outcome.

Skilled in Cooperative Family Mediation, Pamela Breedlove realizes that these sessions can be tense.  She encourages her clients to bring an open mind, as well as a sense of humor with them to mediation. 

She advises parents that the best option for everyone is one that takes the children’s needs into consideration first.

If you have reached a point in your marriage in which the only solution is divorce, give the Breedlove Law Firm a call so you and your family can get back on track following a divorce and allow the healing to begin.
