Affordable Family Law Services in Louisiana

Family law cases are complicated, especially those that involve the safety and wellbeing of several parties, including children. At Ashley Foret Dees, LLC, we believe clients should have an attorney who not only understands every aspect of their case, but one who is committed to obtaining the best outcome possible for their situation.

Our family law legal services include but are not limited to cases involving:

  • Separation and Divorce: Declaring legal separation in Louisiana is complicated, as the state no longer has an action for traditional, non-covenant marriages. However, if you were separated prior to repeal of the action, you will still be considered separated. Before divorcing, you’ll need to consider property division and loss of marital benefits, both of which can be addressed by a lawyer.
  • Child Custody: The state of Louisiana recognizes two types of custody: physical/actual custody and legal custody. Unwed or divorcing couples will need to establish a custody order to define the terms and conditions of a child’s custody. The court will evaluate a number of factors (emotional stability, moral fitness, permanence of custodial homes, and more) to determine the terms of the order.
  • Child Support: Married, unwed, or divorced parents who have physical custody of a child are eligible for child support. Nonparents, such as grandparents, who have legal custody of a child are also eligible for child support from the biological parents. Establishing and enforcing child support is best accomplished with the assistance of a family law attorney.
  • Prenuptial & Post-Nuptial Agreements: Signing a prenuptial or post-nuptial agreement will protect each party’s right to property, division of assets and debts, marital expenses, and more in the event of a future divorce.
  • Adoption: A family law attorney can help you adopt a step child after a remarriage, as well as attend to other common aspects of the adoption process. Call us for more information.

  • Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life.

    “We we're very nervous about driving 3 hours just to get an attorney but upon arrival we immediately felt comfortable. The estimated process time given to us from this office was 6-9 months and we finished everything before the 9 months which was amazing. Thanks to Ashley, Josue, Maria and Karen we succeeded in getting my husband's Green Card. Our family can finally live in peace knowing we will not he separated. We have felt like these people became part of our family. Nothing about this felt like an attorney on client relationship, everything was personal and very professional and we could not have asked for a better experience. We will definitely be hiring Ashley again for the removal of conditions for my husband and hopefully my husband decides to do his citizenship so we can again, hire Ashley. Thank you all for aiding us in finally having a stress-free life. God Bless you all! Muchas Gracias por todo. --*The Terrazas family. *Case involved an I-130 + I-485 Adjustment of Status. ”
