Handling your divorce quickly, affordably, and with the dignity you and your family deserve.
Divorce is not easy. It is personal, emotional, and legally complex. In addition to dissolving a marriage, there are issues surrounding property and asset division, alimony, child support, custody and visitation, or in some cases restraining orders. At Talley Anthony, we will guide you through all of these complex legal matters and help you do what is best for your family with as little emotional distress and confusion as possible.
Protecting your Children
Louisiana recognizes two types of custody: legal and physical. Legal custody determines major areas of a child’s upbringing such as schooling, religious upbringing, and healthcare. Physical custody decides where a child will live and how much time a child will have with each parent. Legal and physical custody can be awarded solely or jointly, sometimes putting divorced parents in a position of having to co-parent. Talley Anthony will help fight for your family in the St. Tammany Court system.
CHILD CUSTODY AND VISITATION
Child support is awarded with respect to both parents’ incomes and expected childcare expenses. The non-custodial parent will be ordered to pay a percentage of their total income which will be adjusted based on how much time a child spends with each parent, in the case of joint custody. Child support obligations are serious in providing for your child’s physical needs. The attorneys at Talley Anthony will help negotiate fair child and spousal support on your behalf.
