Louisiana Custody: Best Interest of the Child
There are various types of custody arrangements in the state of Louisiana,
and when you need to determine what is best for you and your family, many
factors will be involved in this decision. In some cases, one parent might be given
physical custody of the child, which means that the child will reside with that parent,
while the other parent retains visitation rights.
Legal custody, whether it is held by one parent or shared equally by both parents, gives
a parent the right to make decisions about the child's upbringing,
such as schooling, medical care, and other significant decisions.
Joint legal or physical custody is an option where both parents equally share the right to make such decisions,
and the child will live with both equally. Parents usually work out a
schedule that meets the work and housing requirements of both parents.
In all cases, the best interest of the child is always the top priority.
At The Layfield Law Firm, LLC Beau will diligently work to ensure all
parties come to the best agreement for all involved, especially the children.
