Divorce is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. The Law Office of Katharine Geary
helps you establish fair and equitable spousal support so that you can continue to live as comfortably as you did before your marriage ended.
Child custody and visitation
For every parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce. We advocate for your parental rights so that you can raise your children in an appropriate and healthy home.
Both parents share the responsibility of raising a child. At the Law Office of Katharine Geary, we help ensure that your child receives the financial support required for a healthy, happy upbringing.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either parent experiences a significant change in financial circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Throughout your divorce, we stand by you. We can accompany you through mediation or litigation, depending on which is likely to obtain the best possible results for you — including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Louisiana authorities interfere with your parental rights, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape. The Law Office of Katharine Geary is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Louisiana to protect your parental rights.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and it can often provide more expedient, more predictable results than a trial can. The Law Office of Katharine Geary is skilled at negotiation and can help you obtain the most favorable divorce settlement using mediation.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can eventually lead to divorce. We expect the unexpected: We draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
