There are several issues that attorneys consider when determining the best course of action in a Louisiana divorce case.

All information discussed with a lawyer related to your legal rights is confidential. This is a list of the top 10 items to bring to an initial consultation for divorce in New Orleans:

  1. Marriage Certificate, or date and place of the marriage
  2. Birth certificates for all children born or adopted by both parties
  3. Mortgage statements for any property owned by the spouses or purchased during the marriage
  4. Judgments or collection documents from creditors
  5. Copies of bank statements
