Experienced Family Law Representation In Lafayette
Delivered With Compassion & Integrity
Guiding You Through The Divorce Process
Divorce is a major change. However, at Bertuccini Law Firm, our legal team does everything we can to help make this a change for the better. We begin by taking the time to listen carefully as you explain the reasons behind your separation. Next, we can help you identify your goals and determine the best way of helping you achieve them. We then put our legal experience to work as we try to negotiate an agreement that everyone can live with. If negotiations break down or are simply not an option, we are prepared to protect your interests in court.
We Help Resolve All Divorce-Related Issues
Our attorney and her legal team provide comprehensive family law representation designed to resolve all of your divorce-related issues, including:
Child custody and visitation: Custody matters are often the most contentious aspect of any divorce proceeding. We will work hard to help achieve the custody and visitation plan you desire, while never losing focus on the best interests of your child.
Child support: State guidelines can provide a general idea of what you may expect to receive or pay in child support. However, there are always exceptions, and a deviation from the guidelines is a possibility. Whether you are seeking support payments or are being asked to make payments, we will work toward an agreement that ensures your children will have the financial support they need.
Spousal support or alimony: Spousal support, also called alimony, is designed to help one party continue to have the lifestyle they were accustomed to during the marriage. These payments are usually temporary and may be awarded to either spouse. It may be possible to seek a modification to an order for alimony if one party’s circumstances have changed, such as remarrying.
Property division: Louisiana is one of a handful of states that follows the rule of community property. This means that both parties have an equal interest in any assets earned or debt incurred throughout the marriage. Property division can be complicated, especially when it involves significant assets. Our experience is needed to protect your interests when dividing property.
Domestic violence issues: Domestic abuse can impact divorce in many different ways, especially when it comes to child custody determinations. If you or a family member is a victim of domestic violence, we can let you know what this may mean for your divorce proceedings.
