A divorce can be very costly and for that reason mediation is an
alternative way to divorce and to work out coparenting details such as visitation schedules, child support, etc. Other issues, such as homes and financial affairs need to be settled. After deciding to divorce, a couple can sit down with us and negotiate and even though there might be some conflicts, mediation offers a less stressful and less costly way to divorce. The mediator is trained to help the couple through the negotiation process, and serves as a neutral, which means the mediator does not take anyone’s side.

If a couple wishes to be represented, we offer as an alternative,
collaborative-divorce which means one attorney represents the interests of both parties. The attorney and the mediator work with the couple to arrive at an agreement. If during the mediation or collaborative divorce one party cannot agree then an attorney can represent the interests of that party. However, this will make the process more expensive as the Courts will then get involved. Louisiana Mediation strives to structure the divorce process to meet needs of our clients.

An initial consultation of one hour is $75.00 and at that time we can
explore options. It is better if both parties attend, but if one party is reluctant, the other party can come in alone.

If you decide you just want to file for divorce, Louisiana Mediation has an attorney who can file your papers and represent you in a simple divorce for $900.00 plus court filing fees.

Payment plans can be discussed. We accept credit cards.
