Baton Rouge Attorney For Child Visitation Concerns

A common outcome in a Louisiana divorce with children is for one parent to be granted primary physical custody and the other to have specific visitation rights. While the law does not contain a preference for granting custody to mothers over fathers, economic and social realities mean that more men rely on visitation orders to ensure they are able to stay close to children and involved in their lives.

Targeting Fair, Workable Orders That Keep Parents Involved And In Touch

I am long-standing Baton Rouge lawyer Keith Friley. You can turn to me for clear, informed counsel on every aspect of your divorce with kids.

Negotiation, Mediation And Litigation · Individualized Legal Counsel You Can Trust

Louisiana courts prioritize children's best interests above all other considerations. In most cases, orders are intended to provide a stable home environment while promoting continued, close relationships with both children. I will work closely with you to set achievable goals for time with your children and negotiate or litigate to achieve them. My experience covers:

  • Obtaining joint custody when possible and establishing visitation orders that may extend beyond a "standard" arrangement such as every other weekend and occasional weeknights with children
  • Developing detailed co-parenting plans designed to accommodate parent's work and travel schedules along with children's needs and unique circumstances
  • Providing comprehensive guidance to help my clients avoid common mistakes and position themselves for favorable outcomes if custody and/or visitation cannot be settled through negotiation
  • Taking action for people whose visitation rights are being denied or obstructed by the other parent, those engaged in paternity matters and those who need to pursue a modification of visitation or other orders
