Divorce Lawyer in Denham Springs, LA

Is your marriage breaking apart more every day? Are you already separated and thinking this may be permanent? A divorce is probably one of the most difficult times of your life, and certainly not one you ever thought you would be experiencing. However, if this is your reality now you can make it better by making the right decisions for you and your children. It is necessary to find a good divorce attorney and ask a few questions before moving forward with your case. These include:

  1. What percentage of your practice is divorce?
  2. What is your hourly rate?
  3. How long will it take to resolve my case?
  4. How long do you take to return phone calls?
  5. What’s your estimate of the total cost of this divorce?

Be wary of any lawyer who only gives you the answers that you want to hear. The cost of the divorce depends greatly upon the level of conflict throughout the proceedings, which can sometimes be surprising, and the parish in which you have to file. As well, Louisiana divorces take at least six to twelve months to be finalized, something few divorcing couples want to hear.  In only limited circumstances where fault can be proven, a divorce can take as little as 45 days.

Divorce might feel like the end of your life, but it doesn’t have to be if you handle it the right way. More important than the exact answer is the way an attorney answers this question, and all of the others.
