  • Kristyl Treadaway successfully argued a Motion for Judicial Determination of Community Assets and Liabilities in District Court.  This case went to the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeal and the District Court Judgment was upheld., 2023
  • Kristyl Treadaway was hired by her client for an adoption in 2020. Her client left an extremely unhealthy marriage three years prior and got divorced. She found happiness with her second husband and had a child with him. Her new husband was trying to adopt her son from her first marriage. At this time, the child had no relationship with their birth father. The only father figure for this child was with their stepfather. During trial in 2021, Kristyl and her client learned that there was a service issue in the first divorce, and that her client wasn't truly divorced from her first husband, and as a result, was not properly married to her second husband. With Louisiana law, this meant that the child she had with her second husband was legally considered to be the child of her first husband. Additionally, the Petition for Adoption was DENIED. For three years, Kristyl and her associate worked tirelessly to make things right with Kristyl's client. They nullified the first divorce; they got their client properly divorced. Their client and her current husband were then properly married. They legally had their client's younger baby properly affiliated away from the first husband and with the second husband, the child's biological father. Kristyl and her associate worked to set up a new and valid custody and child support Judgment for the first child with the first husband, the child seeking to be adopted in the first place. From there, Kristyl, her associate and their client waited for the appropriate parameters to be met to try the adoption again. Those parameters were met in early 2023 and the second adoption was filed. Trial on the second adoption was held in March, 2024. Judgment was just received that the second adoption was GRANTED!!! This child who has bonded with their stepfather and only knows this man as their dad is now officially his child. Birth certificates are being reissued with new last names., 2024

These comments were made by fellow attorneys during the annual nomination process.

“Excellent attorney.”
