Making The Complex

Spousal Support Lawyers For Clients On The Northshore And The Southshore

The laws and varying judicial practices governing Louisiana spousal support— often still called alimony — are not well understood by most people who are facing divorce. If you believe you should receive spousal support once your dissolution is complete, or if you are concerned that your divorcing spouse will seek more than you are willing to pay, you need reliable, knowledgeable legal counsel.

The divorce and spousal support attorneys at Nicaud & Sunseri Law Firm, LLC, can guide you through these matters and help you achieve a favorable outcome. We have offices in Metairie and St. Tammany Parish, and we advise and represent clients throughout southeast Louisiana.

Louisiana Alimony Attorneys Proven In Negotiations And Litigation

We are dedicated and diligent spousal support lawyers who can handle all aspects of your divorce, including spousal support determinations and marital property division. We strongly encourage cost-effective, amicable approaches to divorce whenever practical, but we are also formidable litigators who will zealously defend your financial interests in court if that is what your situation demands.

Simply stated, any final award of spousal support is far from automatic in a Louisiana divorce. When alimony is awarded, the purpose is usually to tide over the recipient while she or he gets back in the workforce. If one party earns substantially more than the other, “interim” spousal support will likely be awarded while the case proceeds, but it is critical to prepare your case and position for the long term.

Looking Out For You In The Immediate Future And For The Long Term

At our firm, we consistently strive for fair and equitable outcomes in full view of our clients’ unique personal and financial circumstances. For you, this may require:

  • Ensuring that all financial information provided to the court by your divorcing spouse is accurate and complete
  • Advocating for an interim spousal support determination that is fair to both parties — given that Louisiana divorces with minor children involved require the parties to live separate and apart for 365 days or complete other, very specific legal procedures
  • Extensive analysis and preparation to establish the strongest possible position for you regarding a final determination of spousal support, whether arrived at through negotiations or in litigation
