We understand divorce is life-changing and we will provide you the best representation possible and help you make the best decision for your family. Whether your case is contested or uncontested, we will guide you through the process.

Uncontested Divorce

We strive to make your divorce as easy as possible. If you and your spouse can reach an agreement, you may be able to pursue an uncontested divorce and avoid litigation and the time, stress, and fees that naturally come from the process. We handle Louisiana uncontested divorces and will draft and file the documents necessary to implement any agreement you and your spouse reach.

Contested Divorce

A contested divorce in Louisiana is one in which spouses cannot agree on every issue. However, just because a divorce is contested, does not mean there needs to be a heated and prolonged battle. At Vamvoras Antoon Attorneys at Law, our goal is to provide skilled and compassionate representation, negotiating the most favorable outcome for each client. We strive to settle cases out of court but are always prepared to take a case to trial if necessary.

Filing for Divorce in Louisiana

Louisiana law requires that you and your spouse live separate and apart at different residences for a specific period before being granted a divorce:

180-Day Separation Requirement

For spouses without minor children, the mandatory separation period is 180 days.

365-Day Separation Requirement

For spouses who have minor children together, the mandatory separation period is 365 days.

There are other factors that can determine the waiting periods for a divorce, including adultery, domestic violence, or another types of fault.

Our firm also has expertise guiding clients through other family law matters, including:

It is important to know that you do not have to wait for finalization to address certain incidental matters such as the above. Often times, it is important that you file as soon as possible so that the court can determine custody and support issues while the divorce is pending.
