Resolving Your Divorce and Family Law Issues Without Going to Court

Our practice is to seek to save you money and resolve your case without going to court. We will fight for your rights in court when necessary. Otherwise, we are experienced and trained to handle your case without the delays created by the court system. We handle a variety of family law cases (simple and complex), including divorce, mediation, non-contested divorce, division of property, prenups, child custody/support, spousal support/alimony, custody of children born outside of marriage, paternity, grandparents' rights, adoptions and domestic abuse. Further, we provide estate planning. We will prepare your Will, Power of Attorney, Living Will, and probate successions.

Our firm also has experienced attorneys who handle personal injury, collection, breach of contract, auto redhibition and other miscellaneous legal matters. Call us at 504-368-2700. If we are not able to personally handle your particular legal issue, we will refer you to a local and national network of attorneys through the Christian Legal Society.

Roy M. Bowes & Associates are committed to providing the highest quality legal representation possible. Roy M. Bowes has had a private civil trial practice with a concentration in family law for over 40 years. Call us at (504) 368-2700 for a consultation.
