Family, Domestic and Mediation Generally in Gretna, LA

Fighting with an ex spouse or partner to see your children or take from the marriage what is rightfully yours may seem like a nightmare. This is why you shouldn’t do it alone. Gretna residents have Ellen Cronin Badeaux, LLC to represent them in highly-emotional cases such as these. In many cases, we can avoid going to a judge all together and settle things in Mediation. Your Mediation can take place right in our office and be handled by our compassionate legal experts.

If you are in the middle of a divorce or child custody situation, it is an extremely stressful time of your life. It is often better for both parties involved to resolve things in Mediation instead of going before a judge and possibly receiving a ruling that neither party actually wants. In Mediation, you and your ex can resolve your differences and retain control of the outcome in a neutral setting, without airing all of their dirty laundry in court. No judgements are handed down for the parties. Instead, you and your ex will create your own resolution. No one will be forced to settle and no one can bully the other one. While this may sound impossible right now, our family attorneys and the Mediator will help move this along. This type of Mediation can resolve child custody and visitation schedules, child support, alimony/spousal support, and community property partition disputes. However, if Mediation does not end in a peaceful agreement, then we are prepared to take the next steps necessary.
