Divorce Lawyer in Franklinton, LA

Have you been served with divorce papers from a soon-to-be ex and are distraught over it? Are you angry or sick of your spouse and ready to file for divorce yourself? While these may seem like too very different situations, they actually require the same first step: to contact an experienced and professional divorce lawyer. For those in the Franklinton area, caring attorneys are at Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC. Divorce might feel like the end of your life, but it is not! We want you to see divorce as a new opportunity to continue your life and rebuild it.

Louisiana has very distinct divorce laws, including the fact that your divorce will not be finalized by a judge for either six months or a full year depending on the exact situation. However, a divorce may be immediately granted for adultery, a felony conviction that results in imprisonment, or sexual or physical abuse to you or children living with you. This is why having an expert in the field is so important. During a divorce, more than any other time in your life, having someone on your side is so important. You need someone to fight for you to bring what you deserve out of the marriage, whether it is the finances you are entitled to, the child custody arrangement you want, or whatever you should have based on a prenuptial agreement. You may have a hard time fighting this battle for yourself, which is exactly how we can help.

"I would like to thank your firm for everything you’ve done to help me keep 50/50 custody of my son. I came to you on very short notice but you knew exactly how to handle my case and I couldn’t be happier. I’m sure I will be working with you again in the future."

"Ms. Badeaux has been an excellent family attorney for us. Her time and personal commitment have allowed us to make informed decisions. We have had to trust her with very delicate and emotional issues and she has guided us to excellent outcomes. I will always appreciate the exceptional service she provides our family with. I have always liked the statement, "you get what you pay for"; and Mrs. Badeaux has been well worth it."

"Hey Ellen, I truly appreciate you sitting through today’s hearing. I know that you didn’t have to and it meant more than you’ll ever know. Thank you. I don’t have very much money anymore but I am going to do everything I can to get this bill paid so that I can have representation. Thank you once again for me being such an incredible woman. It’s rare and noted. Have an amazing night and a Happy Valentines Day. Thank you. YG"
