Experienced Help With Your Family Law Concerns

Divorce and family matters can be complicated and emotional. Laws involving family matters change often, sometimes each year. Matters involving spousal support or child support can make cases contentious.

Carleton Shoenfelt & Chapman, has experienced family law attorneys to handle difficult cases as well as straightforward ones with compassion and strong advocacy. Let us assist you in Baton Rouge or elsewhere in Louisiana.

Offering Skilled Assistance With Complex Financial Matters

Complicated community property matters involving a family business or businesses, qualified domestic relations orders and pension plans, real estate and investments require experienced and knowledgeable counsel. Occasionally, parties attempt to hide assets or income. Carleton Hebert & Shoenfelt work as a team wherein experienced business lawyers pool resources with family law counsel for the best results.

Resolving Disputes Over Custody And Visitation

Custody matters can potentially involve parties in difficult and protracted litigation or may simply be resolved by agreement. Carleton Hebert & Shoenfelt’s attorneys strive to resolve issues so the parties are both well-suited for custody and parenting. Occasionally, however, difficult issues arise when a party has mental health problems or drug issues or has committed family violence. Other times, a party may wrongfully accuse another of these issues.

Certain matters may involve grandparents or other extended family members’ visitation or custody rights. New law in the area of grandparents’ rights can help resolve intergenerational conflicts regarding custody and visitation. Experience, good judgment and the legal knowledge of a family law attorney can be invaluable whether the matter is simple or complicated.

Guiding Families Through Adoption

Adoption, both between family members and private party adoptions, need the skill of an experienced family law attorney to be completed timely and accurately. Difficult or unusual cases involving contested adoptions must be handled skillfully for the adoption to be successful.
