For Visitation Concerns, Trust An Experienced Lawyer

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.

We at Friley & Dugas, LLC, are long-standing Baton Rouge area lawyers. You can turn to us for clear, informed counsel on every aspect of your divorce with kids. We know how important it is for our clients to obtain fair, workable visitation orders suited to their unique situations. For more than 40 years, we have advocated skillfully and effectively for mothers’ and fathers’ rights and children’s well-being.

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

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 parents. We will work closely with you to set achievable goals for time with your children and negotiate or litigate to achieve them. Our 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 our 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
