Domestic abuse reports drop during holidays

The common assumption is that domestic violence rises during the holidays. When the whole family is together, the closeness and commotion may wear on raw nerves. It has been reported that people drinking to excess and feeling the stress or disappointment of the day raises emotions and tempers. However, while there are certainly incidents of abuse in Louisiana and elsewhere, studies show that these perceptions are not necessarily true. 

Startling domestic abuse statistics

Intimate relationships are meant to foster love and mutual respect between two people. When one partner becomes controlling or abusive, the other may find himself or herself in a day to day struggle for survival. Statistics show that in Louisiana and across the country, abuse by an intimate partner is not as uncommon as some may think. In fact, over 10 million people are victims of domestic violence each year.

When a marriage ends, one topic that stirs heated emotions may be alimony. Since each marriage is different, it follows that the decisions and judgments made in each divorce will be unique. Spousal support in Louisiana is determined by a judge who takes many factors into consideration.

Does Louisiana treat fathers fairly in child custody cases?

A lot of men feel that mothers are given special treatment when it comes to child custody cases. In the past, this may have been true. However, the courts now recognize the significant roles fathers play in the lives of their children and take that into consideration when determining custody arrangements.
