It is possible for parents in Louisiana to walk away from their divorce satisfied with the outcomes reached. With regard to child custody, this could mean working out a joint custody or sole custody with a liberal visitation arrangement. Yet, despite how comfortable an individual may be with such an arrangement, the situation can quickly change, leaving a parent concerned for his or her child's safety while in the care of the other parent.
In these instances, it might be necessary to take the matter to court to find relief. Under Louisiana law, for example, a court can prohibit parental visitation with a child if the court finds, by a preponderance of the evidence that the child has been physically or sexually or abused.
