This guide has some basic information about divorce in Louisiana state court. There is also a link to a computer program that will create a divorce forms packet. Warning: depending on your situation, you may need additional forms or different forms. These forms do not cover every situation. These forms do not apply to divorce in a state other than Louisiana.
Warning! This resource or the computer program cannot replace the advice of a lawyer licensed in your state who knows your situation. Try to get a lawyer to help you if you can.
There are programs that offer free legal help for low-income or other qualified people. You can search for free legal help in your parish on LouisianaLawaHelp.org (http://www.louisianalawhelp.org/) and its online directory of free legal services programs: http://louisianalawhelp.org/find-legal-help/directory/area
Make sure you have the right forms for your situation before you use the computer program. If you are unsure of how to go forward, stop and try to find a lawyer to help you with your issue.
The computer program helps you draft a divorce forms packet. The guide and the computer program do not tell you what forms you need for your particular situation. If you do not know which form or form or forms you need or how to use your form or forms, try to find a lawyer to help you with your case.
Note: the online forms program may work better in some browsers than in others. If you cannot get the online interview form to open in one system, you may want to try Chrome or Internet Explorer.
This guide and forms are not legal advice. You can only get legal advice from a lawyer licensed to practice in your state who agrees to help you with your specific situation.
