Custody Attorneys That Are Compassionate

The decisions a parent makes during a child custody case can have a significant impact on the outcome. That is why we work closely with you and help determine the best custody agreement possible for your child and both parties involved. Our child custody lawyers in Baton Rouge are experienced in handling several different custody arrangements, including:

  • Joint Custody
  • Sole Custody
  • Temporary Child Custody
  • Child Custody Modification
  • Physical Custody
  • Legal Custody
  • Grandparents’ Rights

Experienced Litigation in the Courtroom

We do our best to keep your case from going to court. However, if we cannot negotiate or reach an agreement with the co-parent, our attorneys will litigate in court to ensure your child receives the best arrangement possible. The Louisiana family courts will determine what is in the best interest of the child.

A judge will consider some of these factors when making his or her decision, including, but not limited to:

  • Parents’ interactions and relationship with the child
  • Child’s relationship with siblings
  • Child’s history at home, school, and community
  • Consistency in the child’s education
  • Capacity for parent to provide necessities for the child (food, medical care, etc.)
  • Mental and physical health of each parent
  • Parents’ drug or alcohol abuse history
  • Evidence or allegations of child or spousal abuse
