How Child Custody Is Determined in Louisiana
- According to Louisiana law, child custody agreements are mostly determined by the Uniform Child Custody Act. These laws include:
- Join custody options for parents
- Sole custody for a singular parent
- Grandparent’s rights and visitation for grandparents disjointed by divorces
- Taking into consideration the child’s wishes when the child is old enough to fully express them
Numerous things will be taken into consideration when determining child custody, including the capability each parent has to fully provide for the child, the overall welfare of the child in each parent’s care, and special needs such as education, social, or religious preferences. Custody and visitation can be complex and an attorney can help you determine the course of action that will best suit your needs.
