Does establishing paternity have any significance on your case?

Fathers' rights are a tenuous issue in Louisiana, and many fathers feel that they are fighting an uphill battle when seeking fair visitation time or a strong relationship with their children. For some fathers, this process can be even more complicated when they had never married the mother of their children.

You can protect your credit with divorce mediation

Ending a marriage often feels more like ending a business than a relationship. There are assets to divide, and debts as well. If you were ending a business relationship, you would probably want certain assurances that you will not end up liable for your partner's debts. The same could be said in a Louisiana divorce, which is why you may want to take full advantage of divorce mediation in order to protect your credit and your financial future.

The downside of joint legal child custody

During a marriage, parents make major decisions in the lives of their children -- many without even thinking twice. When they disagree, they work it out one way or another. What about when Louisiana parents are divorced? Disagreements regarding child custody, including joint legal custody, can quickly devolve into courtroom battles.

Take care when dividing debts during divorce mediation

Dividing property, deciding custody and determining support issues may be your main concern as you go through the process of going from a married couple to single individuals. These issues do need to be dealt with, and there is often a great deal of advice on how to do that during divorce mediation. However, one important topic that requires just as much attention in your Louisiana divorce is your marital debts.

As a father, you have the right to seek support modifications

As a father, you hope to play a pivotal role in your children's lives. However, because of divorce and child custody terms, you may feel that you do not get the opportunity to be in your children's lives as much as you would like. You may feel some sense of pride in providing child support payments as this action allows you to ensure that your children's needs are met.
