Your Family Advocate For Over 40 Years
Have you decided that you want to file for divorce – or has your spouse filed, putting the pressure on you to respond? Do you need to confront another challenge involving children, support obligations or other critical issues? The single best step you can take at this point is to find a knowledgeable, experienced lawyer who will prioritize your rights and interests. At Friley & Dugas, LLC, we’ve helped families throughout the Baton Rouge area overcome their family law issues over our 40 years in practice.
In that time, we have gained invaluable experience across the full spectrum of Louisiana family law. Our clients benefit from clear, reliable guidance whether they need help completing an amicable, uncontested divorce or must prepare rigorously for litigation of contested issues. We will help you understand the divorce process, set achievable goals and move forward toward resolution.
Your Children’s Well-Being And Your Parental Rights Matter To Us
Balancing mothers’ and fathers’ rights in support of children’s best interests can be challenging in many ways. Emphasizing objectivity and compromise when possible, we protect our clients’ interests in wide-ranging matters involving:
- Child custody and visitation
- Paternity claims and disputes on behalf of unmarried parents
- Establishment of child support
- Modifications of court orders when justified by significant changes in parents’ circumstances or children’s needs, including those associated with child relocation cases
We always put children at the forefront of any strategy and always factor in their best interests.
Protect Your Financial Interests
Whether you have basic assets or millions, ensuring that the division of community property in your divorce is fair may be a top priority. In addition to decades actively practicing law, we also have professional accounting experience that is valuable for financial analysis and issue-spotting when addressing, for example:
- Negotiations or litigation to establish alimony (sometimes called spousal support or maintenance)
- The drafting of prenuptial agreements – or, in some cases, postnuptial agreements – to proactively address property division, alimony and select other issues before they arise in divorce
- Short and long-term view of your finances so you can create a plan that fits your lifestyle.
Your future is worth protecting.
