How important are fathers in their children's lives?

It is seen all the time in the legal field: fathers who are shut out of their children's lives. Oftentimes this happens when a child is born out of wedlock and the man is not recognized as the child's legal father, and other times it occurs after a nasty divorce. Either way, men across Louisiana are left not knowing what they can do to become a part of their child's life and whether the effort is even worth it.

Passionately representing Louisianans in child support cases

Child support is often one of the most hotly contested issues in a divorce, and for good reason. As we highlighted in last week's post, your child support obligation can be expensive and long-lasting. For some, their child support obligations can leave them facing financial difficulty. Yet, the same is true for custodial parents on the other end. Without the continued and consistent financial support of a noncustodial parent, these individuals may be unable to adequately provide for their children.

When can child support be terminated?

If you are a noncustodial parent, then you know the financial strain support payments can put on you. Even though support modification may help give you some breathing room, you might eventually want the support payments to stop altogether. Whether it is because you feel they are unjustified or because they are no longer needed, altering or ending these payments might be needed. There are instances when child support will be terminated, but there are also some circumstances that may give rise to a continuation of support, even when it would otherwise be terminated.

When celebrities get divorced it is oftentimes considered headline news. Louisiana residents might grow tired of seeing these stories, but there is a lot to learn from them.

How do I tell my children about divorce?

If you are going through a divorce, or thinking about filing for divorce, then you may find yourself stressing about your finances and the legal battles that may lie ahead. However, if you have children, then what you might worry about most is telling your children about the divorce and helping them get through the process as best as possible. This can be complicated, especially if a dispute with your soon-to-be-ex-spouse is heated and child custody is a sticking point.
