CUSTODY - July 2021

In July 2021 a teenage girl decided the grass was greener on the other side and wanted to live with her father. Her father had no rules and just remarried a younger woman. The younger woman treated the teenage girl as a "friend" rather than a child. Therefore, the mother did not want the child to be living at her father's. We went to trial and the judge kept the child at the mother's home and had her seeing her father three weekends a month. In the summer he had the parents do a week to week. The father did not like this and decided to appeal it. The 1st Circuit agreed with the trial judge.

Our client came in because she and her ex-boyfriend did not have a custody agreement on their minor children. We filed a Motion for Custody to be Set; and now they know exactly which parent should have the minor children on holidays, birthdays, summer vacation, etc. We always try to put something in the written judgments so that in odd years one parent will have the minor children on certain holidays and even years for other holidays.

SUCCESSION - February 2021

Many of our clients come in because of a death of a loved one. Because I lost my husband several years ago, she can empathize with a person having to do a succession. Our client came in crying because she had just lost her husband and she could not get access to any of the bank accounts. We quickly got a judgment of possession for our client so that she could access the bank accounts and sell the vehicle that her husband drove. Plus, once she was ready to sell her house, she was able to do that. Successions always need to be done for a person to sell their home.


Our client came in because his ex-wife got a protective order against him claiming sexual molestation. After several polygraphs, investigations by DCFS, investigations by Livingston Parish Sheriff's Office, it was determined that it was NOT true.

CUSTODY - December 2020

Previously, she only got to see the children when her ex-husband allowed her to, and then he had to supervise the visit.

Judges understand that while parents may get hooked on drugs, once they get clean, they should have unsupervised custodial privileges.

CUSTODY - July 2017

Our client was a grandmother who came in to see us because the child's parents were both drug addicts. In the end, she got sole custody of the minor child and both parents received supervised visits with their child.

**We also do many, many divorces where there are no children or community property. These divorces are usually very easy and both parties agree to the divorce. These can be done fairly quickly and amicably. We do the same for custody on minor children. Both parties agree on how they should have their physical custody with the minor children. Therefore, we prepare the motions and judgments for the courts.
