Let’s set up a time to talk.

My divorce is simple. Why do I need a lawyer?


Divorce is one of the most complex and emotional legal processes in family law. Not all couples require in-depth court assistance. If you are both in agreement on the outcomes for child custody, visitation, child support, property division, and alimony, and are sure neither will change their mind in the final proceedings, then you may not need a lawyer. Keep in mind though, that even the most agreeable couples can hit roadblocks that will require mediation to resolve. This is when you need to hire a Houma divorce lawyer.

If you think you entered into a bad deal or agreed to something you didn’t understand, your only recourse will be to go back to court to try and change your final order. But undoing a divorce agreement is difficult and generally only allowed under very limited circumstances. An hour of advice early on can save many hours and many dollars later on.
