Divorce Attorneys in New Orleans, Louisiana
Local, Interstate and International Divorce Representation
The Stephenson, Chávarri & Dawson law firm offers experienced, results-oriented representation for men and women seeking a divorce in the New Orleans area.
Each attorney at law at our firm has a long history of service to individuals and families in Louisiana. We have handled many cases that dealt with some of the most complex legal issues in the divorce process, including property division, prenuptial, child support, alimony, and other types of spousal support.
Our experience in the practice areas of business and estate planning enables us to provide a broad range of legal services above and beyond divorce representation, including revision of wills, adjustment of business succession plans and valuation, and equitable division of closely-held business interests.
In addition, the international scope of service and multilingual capabilities at Stephenson, Chávarri & Dawson makes our firm a logical choice to represent French- and Spanish-speaking clients, those involved in interstate or international divorce disputes, and those for whom immigration status is a concern in divorce.
Our Approach to Divorce Cases
Our approach to divorce and other types of legal separation is pragmatic. We have years of experience working toward such outcomes. We understand that litigation can be costly and time-consuming. Often, resolution of community property disputes and other disagreements through collaborative law, mediation, or arbitration is preferable. Our attorneys have extensive experience and professional qualifications in these methods and can offer knowledgeable guidance for clients seeking to explore cost-effective options in obtaining an uncontested divorce. This is not always possible in all family law cases, particularly in contested divorces or cases that involve domestic violence. While we recognize the benefits of collaborative outcomes, you can also trust our attorneys to support you through difficult cases. We will work to protect your rights and those of your children.
Our firm’s knowledge of international law and our ability to speak many languages makes us uniquely qualified to handle international child custody disputes, international adoptions, and questions related to court jurisdiction over foreign citizens.
