Separation and divorce from a spouse can be emotionally exhausting, and sometimes it is hard to keep perspective on your rights and responsibilities during the settlement process.

Parental Rights and Responsibilities

ENFORCEMENT OF EXISTING SETTLEMENTS
Louisiana divorce law stipulates that the terms of a divorce judgement can be enforced or changed if either party does not satisfy the terms of the arrangement. If you have already been through a divorce, even with another attorney, and your former spouse is behind on child support, spousal support, or is not following the terms of your settlement, it’s time to GET TOUGH. The Domingue Law Firm will:
Modify divorce judgment if there has been a change in circumstance
Modify child or spousal support if there has been a change in income or circumstances
Modify child custody arrangements
If any party is not following the terms of an existing judgement, we will file motions for enforcement and motions of contempt in issues of child support, visitation, property and asset division provisions, payment of spousal support and alimony, and issues to deal with real property

Child custody is the biggest issues parents face when choosing to divorce. This is what we call the WHERE, WHICH, HOW & WHO. Custody decisions generally establish:
Where a child lives,
Which parent holds the decision-making authority,
How much time you spend together,
Who controls choices about education, religion, medical care, and more.
Because so many future factors are determined during the initial divorce process, it is vital to protect your rights as a parent and ensure that you continue to have a major role in your child’s upbringing. This includes your child’s relationship with each parent, parenting ability, your child’s connection to their siblings, location, physical environment, and more. In the end, the child’s ultimate well-being is what matter the most. Making sure that you have competent representation will ensure that your child receives the best outcome, but also that your rights are protected as well.
We can think of no greater injustice than losing custody of your children. Before You Make A Move, Make A Call! to the Domingue Law Firm. We are ready to take your call at ANY Hour, ANY Day at 337-484-1001.
