This is a common question at Quick Divorce Now!

Louisiana doesn't have legal separation for non-covenant marriages!

Your separation date is the date that you and your spouse physically separated.

You qualify for an uncontested online divorce at Quick Divorce Now if you have been separated from your spouse for at least 180 days (without children under 18) or 365 days (with children under 18)

Have more questions about your separation date and need help determining it?  Check your eligibility and contact us through your client portal!

In Louisiana, a spouse may file for an immediate “no fault” divorce after they have lived separate and apart for at least 180 days. If you have children under 18 years old, you have to be apart for at least 365 days.  If you have children and have not lived separate and apart for at least 365 days, you may still file a Petition for Divorce but will then have to wait 365 days until you are able to finalize your divorce. Depending on the circumstances, there may be a way to reduce this time frame. Please call our offices and talk to one of our lawyers. 

Quick Divorce Now will help you determine which parish you should file your divorce in.  

Louisiana is divided into court districts and each court has a clerk who determines the fees for legal filings in that court.

Louisiana law requires that a petition divorce be filed in the parish where either party is domiciled, or in the parish of the last matrimonial domicile.

This means that if you lived in one parish as a married couple and then each moved away, you may have 3 parishes to choose from!

With so many options, how do you decide?  Well, you may instantly want to file in the parish with the cheapest online divorce court filing fees, but that shouldn't be all you consider!  

Quick Divorce Now maintains a database of all divorce filing expenses and we can help you determine which parish will be able to complete your divorce documents fastest and at the cheapest price!

For example: 

  1. Parish 1 has a $275 filing fee, doesn't have online divorce court filing, and usually takes 1-2 weeks to issue Judgments.
  2. Parish 2 has a $325 filing fee, allows online divorce court filing, but usually takes 2-3 weeks to issue Judgments
  3. Parish 3 has a $400 filing fee, allows for online divorce court filing, and usually takes 2-3 days to issue Judgments.

In this scenario, Parish 1 would be your best choice for the cheapest divorce in 1-2 weeks.  But Parish 3 will give you your fastest divorce for only $125 more in online divorce court filing fees.

Quick Divorce Now can help you change your name in your Judgment of Divorce.

You will have the option to return to your maiden name or the name you were using at the time of your marriage. 

Important reminder that if you changed your name with the Louisiana Social Security Office, the DMV, or on your passport, you will have to complete those same steps to change your name back!

Very often clients want to keep and use their married name due to professional or personal reasons - and that is legally allowed!  Your married name belongs to you, and no one can force you to change it!

If you are unsure if you want to change your name, don't worry, you can change your name at a later date in a quick and easy motion to the court.  These require your signature and then we immediately file it with the Court!  You should expect that process to take a few days.

Quick Divorce Now will help you with this and other questions that you have during your divorce.

As we discussed above, there is no law that requires you to change your name when you get divorced.  Your married name is your name. 

Very often clients will ask if they can keep their name until their child reaches a certain age or until they get remarried, or they just decide they want to use their previsous name. 

And the answer is always the same "Of course you can keep your name!"

You can keep your name for a short period of time, or the rest of your life.  It is up to you!

If you decide to change your name later, we can easily return you to the name you used at the time you were married or your maiden name (if different).  This involves a quick and easy name change motion in your divorce case.  For minimal additional fees you can usually return to your prior name in a few days.

Yes! There is no requirement that both spouses agree to a divorce. If your spouse refuses to accept or waive service of process, you may be required to serve them through your local sheriff’s office (or through certified mail if they live out of state). Once they are served, you will be able to proceed with obtaining your final judgment of divorce. In Louisiana, a “no fault” divorce may be obtained once the parties have been separate and apart for 180 days (without children) or 365 days (with children).

Clients often whether or not they have a covenant marriage.   

Most divorce lawyers will answer that question by saying: "If you have to ask, you probably don't have one".

In fact, less than 2% of Louisiana marriages are covenant marriages. 

A covenant marriage requires spouses to indicate on their license that they want to enter into a covenant marriage and execute a declaration of intent, including a statement that "we understand that a Covenant Marriage is for life." 

The signed Declaration of Intent provides:

  1.  A marriage agreement to live together as husband and wife forever;
  2. The parties have chosen each other carefully and disclosed to each other "everything which could adversely affect" the decision to marry;
  3. The parties have received premarital counseling;
  4.  A committment that if the parties experience marital difficulties they agree to make all reasonable efforts to preserve their marriage, including marital counseling; and
  5. The couple also must obtain premarital counseling from a priest, minister, rabbi or similar clergyman of any religious sect, or from a professional marriage counselor.

Premarital counseling is also required.   After discussing the meaning of a covenant marriage with the counselor, the couple also must sign the Affidavit and Attestation form. This form is comprised of an attestation by the counselor with a notarized affidavit confirming their discussion.  

If you haven't taken these steps, you do not have a covenant marriage.

Your spouse doesn't have to agree to sign the divorce documents!

Quick Divorce Now will walk you through the process of getting a divorce when your spouse doesn't agree.

Our office will request the sheriff hand deliver a certified copy of the Petition for Divorce to your spouse's home or work (service of process).

Your spouse will then have 21 days to file an Answer or other document with the Court to say that they agree or disagree with your request for a divorce.

If they don't file an Answer or other document in the 21 days, our office will file a final Judgment of Divorce on your behalf and request the Court issue a default Judgment of Divorce. 

If you answer that your spouse will not sign the divorce documents on your eligibility check, "Service of Process" will automatically be selected in the Build Your Divorce program.  This can be removed if your spouse changes their mind and agrees to sign, and it can also be added if they later refuse to sign the documents.

Quick Divorce Now believes that a divorce should be easy and affordable.  Our attorneys will work with you to determine the cheapest way to obtain your final Judgment of Divorce.

Quick Divorce Now will issue service of process on the defendant when needed. 

Our standard uncontested divorce starts when one party hires Quick Divorce Now to represent them in the uncontested divorce case.  Our attorneys will draft the divorce documents, obtain the client signature, and file the Petition for Divorce with the Court.

After the Petition has been filed, the defendant may sign a waiver that they have been provided a certified copy of the Petition for Divorce from our office, or Quick Divorce Now will issue service of process on the defendant.

Louisiana requires that a defendant in a Louisiana divorce sign a waiver that they have been provided a certified copy of the Petition, or that a Louisiana sheriff's deputy hand deliver a certified copy of the Petition to them.

A waiver is the easiest and cheapest way to get a Louisiana divorce.  A waiver allows your spouse to sign a document and receive a copy of the Petition through the mail, email, or in person. This is the only time your spouse will have to sign any document for the divorce proceeding.

Quick Divorce Now can help you with your uncontested child custody and support issues.

There are many decisions to make when determining what is best for you in your situation.  Quick Divorce Now will draft the agreement made by you and your spouse. 

A final version will be provided to each of you for you to sign.

Once it is signed, the Consent Judgment will be forwarded to the Court for signature.

There are rare situations when a Judge may ask to see the parents to make sure the signed Consent Judgment is in fact their agreement.  In those cases, an attorney with Quick Divorce Now will personally appear in Court with you to put your agreement on the Court record and obtain your Consent Judgment.  Note - This is a rare occurrence.

Quick Divorce Now is not currently accepting contested child custody and support cases.

Quick Divorce Now can help you with your uncontested community property issues. For an additional fee, a lawyer will draft a Consent Judgment for you and your spouse to sign that will reflect your agreements on the division of community property. We will then file the Consent Judgment and obtain the Judge’s signature for you. Quick Divorce Now is not currently accepting contested community property cases.

Unfortunately, there are times when couples separate and lose touch.  Often this happens when one person abandons the marriage.

But a missing spouse doesn't mean that you can't get divorced!

In Louisiana, after a Petition for Divorce has been filed, the defendant may sign a waiver that they have been provided a certified copy of the Petition for Divorce or a sheriff will have to personally serve the defendant.

In this case, the defendant is missing, so what do you do?

Quick Divorce Now will help you apply to the court for a curator to represent your missing spouse in the divorce. 

In Louisiana, these curators are local attorneys that will first try to locate your spouse. If they are unable to locate your spouse, the Court will allow you to obtain your divorce by issuing service of process on the appointed attorney.

Because this case involves another attorney appointed by the Court, there are additional costs associated in the case. 

Clients should also know that although the appointing of a curator is a quick process, the actual work of the curator may take anywhere from 1-6 months. 

After the curator has finished their duties, they will file a Note of Evidence to tell the court everything they have done to try and locate your spouse. 

Our office will file for a divorce trial.  In some circumstances, we will be able to appear by ZOOM for these trials.  In the event a personal appearance is needed, an attorney with Quick Divorce Now will appear with you without any additional charge.

Quick Divorce Now can help you begin your divorce anytime!

In Louisiana, you have to be separate and apart for at least 180 days (without children) or 365 days (with children) to complete your divorce, but you are not required to wait to file your petition.

You can begin the process at any time.

Sometimes clients come to us after being separated for only 1 or 2 weeks.   Quick Divorce Now can begin your document preparation whenever you are ready.  Separating couples often like to have their judgments of custody and support in place immediately.  In those cases, our office will work with you to file your Petition for Divorce and then finalize your divorce when the right amount of time has passed.

During that time, we can work through your consent judgments on custody, support, and voluntary division of community property.

Other times, clients come to us when they want to start the process but want to wait a month or two before filing their documents.  Quick Divorce Now can help you start your divorce documents anytime!

Your divorce should be on your schedule!

Maybe.  Normally, you will not need to go to Court for our standard uncontested or rush divorce unless a Judge requests the parties to confirm their divorce in person. All divorces with an absent party (when your spouses whereabouts are unknown) will require you to appear in person.  We strive to complete all divorces online!

Filing for a divorce in Louisiana is a straightforward process.

Our office will use the information provided by you to draft and complete your divorce documents.  Those documents are then approved by you before being signed in person at our office or signed online with our notary partner, Notarize.com.  You will be required to show your state or federal identification to sign your divorce documents.

If you or your spouse disagree on the separation date, Quick Divorce Now will request a copy of your marriage license or certificate to verify the marriage date.

Other than that, you will not have to produce any other documents to file and finalize your divorce! 

Quick Divorce Now respects your privacy and has a privacy policy regarding disclosure of any of your personal information.
