Spousal Support
Getting divorced is difficult, but it should not lead to a financial crisis. Ms. Gardner can help you establish fair and equitable interim and final spousal support awards.

Child custody and visitation
For any parent, child custody is the most heart-wrenching aspect of divorce.  Ms. Gardner’s highest concern is the best interest of your child.  She advocates for your parental rights so you can raise your children in a fit and healthy home and she never forgets that the child’s interest must be safeguarded at all times.

Child support
Both parents share in the responsibility of raising a child. Ms. Gardner does everything possible to help your children receive the financial support to which they are entitled for a healthy, happy upbringing.

Child support modification
When the unexpected happens — a lost job or a sudden injury —you may be temporarily unable to make your child support payments. Ms. Gardner will work diligently to obtain a modification of your child support order so you can support your children while rebuilding your own financial security.

Ms. Gardner stands by you throughout your divorce. Ms. Gardner works to obtain the best possible results in court or at the negotiation table. She has extensive experience handling issues such as the fair distribution of assets, the division of a marital home, child support payments and child custody rights.

Juvenile delinquency and dependency proceedings
When Louisiana authorities interfere with your relationship with your child, you need a compassionate advocate who understands the bureaucratic red tape.  Julie Anne Gardner is skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Louisiana to protect your parental rights and your child’s future.

Prenuptial agreements
When you marry your beloved, you may not foresee the potential problems that can lead to divorce. Ms. Gardner expects the unexpected and drafts premarital agreements that protect both spouses’ interests. Having an agreement in place can alleviate some stress, should you ever divorce.

While adopting a child brings happiness to families, adoption can also result in substantial heartache when something goes wrong.  Attorney Julie Anne Gardner assists families with the complex legal paperwork and procedures of adoption so you can feel confident that the process is handled accurately and your child’s well-being is secure.
