Child Custody/Support

Lafayette Child Custody Attorney

Custody and visitation are perhaps the most difficult aspects of a divorce, and can be especially difficult for the children involved. The experience of your attorney in a custody case makes all the difference. I am committed to helping you achieve an effective resolution. You will need an aggressive advocate to represent you in this matter. Contact me at The Law Office of Laura L. DavenMotherport to explore your options.

While in many cases, fathers are typically shouldering a great part of the monetary responsibility after a divorce, it is important to calculate a fair support payment. This typically requires aggressive representation. When parents, married or unmarried, are unable to agree on custody or visitation, the court may intervene and make a decision based on the child's best interests. The focus of the law and the focus of the divorcing parents in a custody battle should be that which is in the best interest of the children and fair.

Whether in court or through negotiation, I stand firm on behalf of my clients to ensure that there is a fair and equitable parenting plan for the children. Keeping the best interest of the child in mind, I will help you resolve custody matters in a manner that benefits both you and your child.

Effective Child Support Representation

The goal of child support is to ensure that your children are not financially disadvantaged by the divorce or separation. The court realizes, however, that two households cannot be run on the same amount of money as one.

Child support in Louisiana is governed by guidelines that consider the income of both parties involved, the child custody arrangement, and the number of children. These guidelines are presumptive and are followed closely by the courts. The courts may deviate from the guidelines if the parties agree to a separate arrangement, have a nontraditional child custody arrangement, or if it is in the best interests of the child.

I am knowledgeable in the latest court decisions pertaining to child support. I handle all aspects of child support issues, from minimizing the economic impact on the child's standard of living to protecting the subsistence level of income of parents.

As your lawyer, I help you obtain initial child support, modify a temporary or final judgment of child support, implement or terminate an income assignment order, secure health insurance and medical expense payments, enforce child support orders and obtain remedies for arrearages through contempt proceedings.
