Creating Parenting Plans Through Mediation Or Court Intervention
When parents divorce, they must establish a child custody and visitation plan. Often, parents resolve these arrangements between themselves, either on their own or with the assistance of their attorneys or a mediator.
While every custody case is different, in every instance a negotiated custody arrangement is favorable to what a judge would decide. Divorcing parents are encouraged to work out what they feel is the best arrangement.
What If Parents Can’t Agree?
When a couple is unable to agree, the court will intervene.
Contrary to 10 years ago, prior to the fathers’ rights movement, Louisiana judges no longer assume that the mother should automatically have custody. Rather, judges consider the unique circumstances of the family and the needs of the child, understanding that in most situations, it is beneficial for children to have access to both of their parents. The focus of the law is always on what is in the best interests of the children.
The “best interests” standard is also applied in all post-decree custody and visitation cases such as modifications, relocation and enforcement.
The experience of your lawyer in a custody case makes all the difference. At the Rowe Law Firm, we are committed to helping you achieve an effective resolution. We are here to represent any individual involved in a child custody matter, including mothers, fathers, grandparents and any other interested parties.
