Divorce Lawyer in Harvey, LA

Is your marriage on the rocks? Are you already separated and thinking this may be permanent? You probably never thought you’d find yourself needing a divorce lawyer, but here you are. The best thing you can do for yourself and your children is to find a professional, trustworthy attorney that serves the Harvey area to best represent your interests. In order to do this, it’s necessary to ask a few questions ahead of time. These include:

  1. What percent of your practice is divorce?
  2. How will I get ahold of you if there’s an emergency?
  3. How many years of experience in family law cases do you have?
  4. How long will it take to resolve my case?
  5. What’s your estimate of the total cost of this divorce?

Do not be alarmed that most divorce attorneys will resist answering how much the divorce will cost. In fact, the cost of the divorce depends greatly upon the level of conflict in your case, which can not always be foreseen at the date of filing, and the parish fees in the parish in which you must file. It is important, however, to find out how they will charge you even if you don’t get a number up front. Also, the way attorneys answer this question, and all of the others, may help you decide how trustworthy they are. An attorney that gives you an unrealistically low amount or says the divorce will be final in a few months is incorrect and may also fail to deliver later in court when it matters.  Under very limited circumstances, a divorce may be granted in 45 days if “fault” can be proven.
