Shreveport Divorce Lawyer
Separation and divorce are often troubling and emotionally taxing experiences for couples and their children. From determining spousal support agreements, to dividing property such as the family home, the entire process can be overwhelming.
At the law office of Carl Henry Franklin, Attorney at Law, we understand the challenges you face as you confront a divorce. As your lawyer, Carl Henry Franklin can help ease the emotional burden by carefully explaining your options for a contested or uncontested divorce, helping to negotiate agreements and keep the proceedings on-task to avoid unnecessary disruptions.
Litigation And Contested Divorces
If infidelity or another matter ended the marriage, a fault-based filing may be necessary if certain elements of the divorce remain disputed. In some instances, bitterness and acrimony stemming from these circumstances can derail divorce proceedings and cause costs to pileup. A contested divorce may take longer to resolve as both parties are unwilling to work together.
One of the best methods for efficiently resolving a contested divorce is working with a skilled attorney. With 35 years of legal experience, our firm possesses the skill and resources to help ensure you receive an appropriate settlement.
