Helping You And Your Family Navigate Change

Family legal issues can affect your rights, your relationships and your financial security. Whether facing divorce or another family dispute, it is important that you have sound counsel and experienced advocacy to protect your interests. At the Law Office of Craig P. Hart, our lawyers are dedicated to helping our clients establish their rights and move forward. Using proven strategies and results, we will quickly identify your legal issues and pursue settlement or trial to achieve the best possible outcome in your case.

Our Covington divorce attorneys represent clients in cases involving:

Divorce - We understand that the decision to file for divorce is a difficult one. That is why our attorneys strive to make the process as painless as possible. We will work with you to establish what is most important to you and try to establish long-term solutions for your family.

Child custody - The term "custody" can refer to "legal custody," "physical custody" or both. Legal custody generally refers to a parent's ability to remain involved in a child's life, have access to pertinent records and participate in life decisions. Physical custody generally refers to where the child will live. We help clients resolve custody issues and handle disputes arising out of divorce or other issues.

Child support - Louisiana has adopted specific child support guidelines based on the gross income of the noncustodial parent. Our attorneys can help you collect the support you need as well as defend you against unmanageable child support obligations.

Domestic violence and abuse - As attorneys experienced in both civil and criminal law, we are prepared to help both victims of domestic violence and those who have been accused of abuse. We will aggressively defend your rights to preserve your rights, safety and the best interests of your family.

Unmarried parents and custody - Custody is a complex area of law and often involves third parties, grandparents and unmarried parents. We can assist in paternity, placement, visitation and other issues involving children.
