Q. We have a 17 year old daughter who moved out last night because she didn’t want to be punished. How to emancipate?
A: A 17 year old can be emancipated without the concurrence of her parents. Therefore, if your daughter is in agreement, her mother would not have to be involved.
Q. I am trying to get a divorce from my husband we have no kids are nothing together he had raped me
A: You can get a divorce even if you aren't sure of his current address. It's always best to attempt to locate an address for him, however. If you don't know where he is, the process takes longer and is more costly. Feel free to give me a call and I'll be happy to discuss the process and potential costs, including fees.
Q. In Louisiana does a lawyer get their fee before medical bills are paired ?
A: An attorney's fee agreement usually provides for a fee on the total recovery. Therefore, if the recovery is for $10,000, including medical bills, then his fee would be on the entire $10,000.
Q. I have soul custody of my 4 children. I want to let the oldest one who is 15 go live with his mother.
A: You can file to voluntarily grant her joint custody of him without going to court. An attorney usually can handle this for you without going to court fairly inexpensively. Give me a call and I'll be happy to discuss the procedure and costs associated with this.
Q. What forms would my boyfriend need to fill out to file for an uncontested divorce in Louisiana?
A: I suggest hiring an attorney to handle his divorce to ensure that it is done correctly. If a divorce is not done correctly, the parties may end up still legally married. Many attorneys do not charge much for an uncontested divorce, especially one without children. Feel free to contact me to discuss this further, including the potential costs.
Q. My boyfriend got Served papers For a contempt hearing and motion to intervene. Its state's that he is 44,000 in arrears.
A: Your boyfriend needs to hire an attorney to represent him ASAP. You need to ensure the attorney has a sufficient amount of time to review the file and compile the evidence needed to defend your boyfriend.
Q. My daughter was killed in an accident. Is it mandatory for an autopsy be done if the family doesn't want it
A: My sincerely condolences for your loss. I believe that an autopsy only has to be performed if the death is under suspicious circumstances or if a crime is suspected which resulted in her death. Give me a call and I’ll be happy to discuss this with you further.
Q. My sons father has custody and moved him out of state. Is he in violation of my visitation rights?
A: If he didn't comply with the child relocation statute, he can be held in contempt and/or made to return the child to Louisiana. You should consult with an attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.
Q. Can a family court judge order force a couple to end there relationship?
A: No, but a judge can use a person's relationship with a person as a reason to deny custody to a parent.
