You could encounter some issues regarding child support

Raising kids here in Louisiana or elsewhere can be challenging enough for two-parent households these days, and even more challenging for one-parent households. If you have children and your relationship with the other parent ends, you face working out child custody and child support arrangements. As you move through the process of establishing child support, you may encounter one or more of the following issues.

When would divorce mediation not be the best option?

As more Louisiana couples shy away from the traditional courtroom option to end their marriages, some couples still need the help of a judge to resolve their issues. Not all couples can use something like divorce mediation. In certain instances, the choice to go to court is still the best one.

Collaborative divorce can help couples talk through issues

Numerous Louisiana couples have used divorce mediation to get through the divorce process without relying on the court to make decisions on their behalf. In recent years, another alternative method to help couples talk through issues in their divorces is collaborative divorce. This approach to divorce has gained popularity in recent years due to its philosophy of fostering amicable negotiations that lead to a satisfactory settlement.

Consider these issues before property distribution

Splitting up assets in a divorce may not be as clear-cut as Louisiana residents believe at first glance. Before sitting down to negotiate a divorce settlement, each party needs to do some research regarding the assets they intend to split. Certain issues require consideration before property distribution is finalized and takes place. Otherwise, one or both parties could end up with significant financial regrets later.

Make the most of your visitation

When it comes to child custody, not all Louisiana families can share parenting time anywhere close to equally. One parent may need to be designated as the primary custodian while the other receives visitation. This may occur for any number of reasons such as work schedules, distance and the like. If you are the noncustodial parent, regardless of your reasons for doing so, you can still make the most of your visitation as you work out a parenting agreement.
