'NCIS: New Orleans' Star Agrees to Pay Child Support, Alimony in Divorce Case

Zoe McLellan, one of the stars of the hit network TV show “NCIS: New Orleans,” recently reached an agreement with her ex-spouse in their divorce case.

McLellan and Jean Pierre Gillain were married in 2012 and had one child, a son, Sebastian, who is now two years old. The marriage between McLellan and Gillain lasted approximately three years before ending in 2015. Since that time, the former couple has been working toward a resolution. Since the couple did not have a prenuptial agreement, the divorce had the potential to get very messy, with Gillain seeking spousal support and child support.

When the couple initially announced their split, the first thing they needed to do was figure out a custody arrangement. This was not easy, as Gillain lives in Los Angeles, California while McLellan films her TV show in New Orleans, Louisiana. Gillain requested joint custody and strongly objected to any custody arrangement that required him to travel from LA to New Orleans just to visit his son. Ultimately, the couple worked things out and came up with a visiting schedule that allows both parents to play a role in their child’s life.

Once the child custody situation had been resolved, the ex-couple needed to figure out a way to divide property and other assets, determine a sufficient amount of child support, and decide how much alimony needed to be paid.

McLellan eventually agreed to pay slightly more than $4,000 per month in child support. She also said that she would pay spousal support – but only as a one-time payment, not as an ongoing arrangement. So Gillain will receive a payment of $30,000 for spousal support once the divorce is finalized.

Client Reviews
Attorney Graziano is one of the brightest and most compassionate professionals which anyone could work with! He is a great advocate and is extremely knowledgable of the judicial system. He made a very unpleasant legal situation a pleasant journey, and he helped keep things in perspective and in a positive light. I fully recommend him without reservation! Danielle
Robyn made the divorce process bearable by making sure I was ok every step of the way. She was a fighter when she needed to be and compassionate the rest of the time. The thing I liked best about her is that she was encouraging when I needed to get my end of the work done. She was reasonably priced and worked hard to get my case settled. I have since recommended her to 3 other friends who have retained her services. Ana Z.
It seemed like my case took forever but I trusted Ron Graziano and listened to what he had to say. Mr Graziano said that the insurance company was not being fair and that we should go to trial. The trial was very nerve racking however he eased my mind and killed them with proof and knowledge. My outcome of my trial brought me to tears of joy. I could never imagine such a good outcome. Listen to him, have faith and you too will be impressed. Robin
After a divorce, my ex-husband was not keeping up with his scheduled child support payments. With the help and knowledge of Robyn Flynn, I was able to resolve this issue. Being a single mother of three children, Robyn Flynn made me a priority. I felt respected by her always keeping me informed and encouraged. She was not only my lawyer, but a friend during a very stressful time in my life. I would never use another attorney other than Robyn Flynn and highly recommend her to my friends as a trustworthy, professional and experienced lawyer. Anna H.
