Louisiana Family and Divorce Law Firm
Full-service family law firm in Covington
Whether you are anticipating the joys of adoption or experiencing the frustrations of marital conflict, O’Connor Law Firm can help. Attorney Sheila O’Connor has served families in Covington for more than 18 years. We provide legal services in all areas of family law including:
Our firm assists families with all aspects of international and domestic adoptions. We handle the legalities of your adoption so that you can concentrate on your new family.
Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. We help you establish an equitable amount of spousal support.
Child custody and visitation
We protect your parental rights to raise your children in an appropriate and supportive home.
We can ensure that you receive or pay an equitable amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy environment.
Child support modification and enforcement
Child support payments do not change unless the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the noncustodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify your child support payments accordingly.
Through mediation or litigation, we can help you gain the most equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.
Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Louisiana to protect your parental rights from the interference of government authorities.
Mediation puts the decisions in your hands, and can often provide more expedient, predictable results than a trial. We can help you obtain the most equitable divorce settlement.
Pre- and post-nuptial agreements
We expect the unexpected and draft premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests and that can alleviate some of the stress should you ever divorce.
