Divorce Lawyer in Covington, Louisiana
Going through a divorce is never easy. Even if you and your spouse have mutually decided to legally end your relationship, you may still have feelings of guilt and disappointment about breaking your vows and not being able to make it “for better or worse.” But when one spouse has decided to part ways because he or she feels wronged by the other, the situation can get ugly.
Feelings of betrayal and long-harbored resentment can make one spouse want to “stick it to” the other through the divorce. At the same time you are struggling with anger, resentment, grief and guilt, you have to try to rationally think about what life without your spouse will be like so that you can financially and emotionally protect yourself and your children.
You don’t have to do it alone. You can find divorce help from the attorneys at Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC in Covington, Louisiana.
Divorce in Louisiana
Marriage isn’t something to be entered into lightly, and neither is divorce. To make sure that both spouses have had time to think about their decision, to try to save their marriage and to find ways to lessen the impact on their children, Louisiana divorce laws mandate that couples live apart six months to one year before a divorce is granted except in cases of adultery, conviction of felony and abuse.
Once your divorce petition has been filed, you may need help dividing community property, seeking spousal support, seeking contribution to education, relocation and establishing child custody arrangements that are truly in the best interest of your children. The divorce attorneys at Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC will fight for what you are entitled to by Louisiana divorce law.
Divorce Shouldn’t Mean Financial Suffering
Divorce is undoubtedly emotionally trying. But the hardship should end there. We believe there is no reason why divorce should leave you and your children struggling to make ends meet. We believe you should be able to reap the benefits of the financial security and assets you accrued while married even after the bond has been legally dissolved.
The divorce attorneys at Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC will help you protect your and your children’s best interests. Contact us today for legal divorce help in Covington if you’re contemplating divorce or suspect adultery.
