Louisiana's laws respect that marriages are built on the backs of two adults. That means that all they do supports the other person and that they share in their responsibilities. As a result, when two people in a committed relationship divorce, they are expected to divide their marital property fairly and evenly.
With a child, going through a divorce can be difficult. However, if that's what you have to do, then most people will find a way to get through the situation successfully.
When you have an existing child custody order in place in Louisiana, you may, at some point, wish to modify that agreement for one reason or another. Maybe you wish to spend more time with your child than you currently do and you have recently moved to make this geographically possible. Perhaps you have concerns about the quality of care your child receives when he or she is with the other parent, and you believe that spending more time in your home would be in your child’s best interests. Regardless of your reasoning for wanting to change your current child custody arrangement, there are certain steps you must take in order to initiate the process.
When you look at everything that you've accrued during your marriage, it might be frightening to think about losing any of it in divorce. The reality is that divorces do mean that you'll likely end up with less than you have in your marriage, but that's with the trade-off that you'll be single and able to do what you'd like in your own life.
