About Betsy A. Fischer, Attorney And Legal Author About Divorce In Louisiana

Drawing on more than 20 years of experience, our firm's founder, attorney Betsy A. Fischer, has a unique legal background. She is not only a seasoned lawyer, but also a published author of a book on Louisiana divorce law entitled Divorce in Louisiana: The Legal Process, Your Rights, and What to Expect, demonstrating the depth of knowledge in this complex field.

The book uses a Q&A format to help people understand the legal process and what to expect. Ms. Fischer pays particular attention to the mediation process and how negotiated settlements can help spouses overcome even the most contentious disputes. For divorces requiring trial, she explains the step-by-step legal process and how judges based their decisions on the division of marital property and debt under Louisiana law, as well as custody and child support matters.

Ms. Fischer represents individual clients and offers mediation services in child custody cases, divorce and other family law matters. She is a certified domestic and juvenile mediator.

Attorney Betsy Fischer's intimate knowledge of Louisiana law — and the procedural rules of local courts — gives her a leg up in walking clients through both basic and complex legal issues.

We recognize that divorce is a highly personal and often emotional matter. As you make decisions that are critical to your future, you must weigh each step against the the effects on your entire family. We take the time to listen, to care and proceed knowing that not only the next few months are on the line, but your future for years to come.

Divorce Mediation...

Divorce and family law litigation ranges from simple forms that may need submitting to the court all the way to contested court battles over custody of the children. We never forget how much money is on the line, in the settlement and in legal fees and court costs. That's why we offer flat fees for uncontested divorce filing and some other family law services. If you think your divorce will have very few contested issues, we can often work out an amicable agreement and submit it to the court for a judge to sign off. Ms. Fischer is a qualified mediator with many hours of experience helping her clients get through the process, one issue at a time.

...Or Trial, If Necessary

For divorces involving disputes over property and custody, you can trust Ms. Fischer to prepare your case diligently and try your case aggressively. You will always be kept fully informed and fully in control of your decisions throughout the litigation.

We will walk you through the process step by step. You can find peace of mind knowing an experienced family law attorney is looking out for you with care and attention.

As the author of a recently published book Divorce in Louisiana: The Legal Process, Your Rights, and What to Expect, Ms. Fischer literally wrote the book on the nuances of divorce law in Louisiana.

Our firm also provides knowledgeable guidance on elder law, an area that frequently overlaps with family law.

Real-World Advice

While the legalities of a family law case often take center stage, there are many practical considerations involved in divorce, child custody and adoption cases. It is your lawyer's job to alert you to these considerations. Beyond merely providing an academic perspective on the nuances of family law, your attorney should also walk you through how legal decisions can impact your life on a large-scale or day-to-day level.

At our firm, you will find exactly this type of guidance. Our lawyer has valuable insight - rooted in experience - into the financial, relational, logistical and emotional ramifications of critical legal decisions. She can give you a well-rounded, real-world perspective on what to expect. Armed with this knowledge, you can feel confident that you are making wise and informed decisions on how to proceed.
