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.

    “We have been using this office since 2014. They have helped us from adjusting my husbands status from his overstayed visa, to getting his travel permit, green card, and now his citizenship! They were able to pretty much do everything for us to where we only needed to submit documents and stay in contact. They made the entire process smooth and quick for us. They helped put our minds at ease when we were worried what could happen while we wait. Very good with quick response times! Very friendly staff! Both Ashley & Jeb were amazing to us and worked closely with us throughout the process! Maria & Josue were our main contacts throughout this as well and were just friendly and always answered my questions. Karen & Ann were amazing with working out payment arrangements for us during a difficult time of a new baby. This entire office is an amazing team and we recommend them to all of our friends who will need to go through these things as well! Thanks for all your help!”
