Alexandria, Louisiana

Custody Lawyer

I am a father. My children are my world. There is nothing more important to a parent than being able to protect, to comfort, to provide, and to love their children.

None of that changes when parents split up. On the contrary, those priorities become all the more important. When parents break up, we must put the children first.

Mr. Jones’s dedication to our case was second to none. He can always be counted on in a time of need, no matter the circumstances. He always remained focused on the most important detail, THE CHILDREN. His character is beyond reproach! A fearless advocate that made ethically challenged professionals look small and petty. A consummate professional that is only limited by the opportunities afforded to him or his firm.

There are lots of custody lawyers in Alexandria, Louisiana. To be considered one of the best, we have developed a system and reputation of being more thorough, organized, and prepared than the rest. Whether you seek sole or joint custody of your child, you will need an experienced Alexandria custody lawyer on your side to not only protect your children, but also advocate for your rights as a parent. Without the right lawyer, you run the risk of losing valuable time with your children.

Custody litigation is complicated. Each of our judges are different, with varying expectations. Preparing for trial for your judge requires extensive analysis and assistance from a savvy child custody lawyer. You need to present the best case possible. That is what we do.

The Right Custody Plan for You

Every case is different. Every parent, child, and family unit is unique.

In any divorce or separation, we always hope that both parents will keep the children as their priority. Custody does not always have to be a fight. Oftentimes, we can create an amicable custody agreement without going to court. Because everything changes when parents split, even two good parents need guidance, rules, and a schedule to make sure the children prosper.

On the other hand, sometimes a custody fight is necessary. If your children need protection from an abusive parent, we will protect them. If a parent has chosen drugs or alcohol over the children, we will protect them. If the other parent is hiding the kids from you, we will find them. we truly hope that none of these problems apply to you, but if they do, we can help.

Stability is the goal. Your children shouldn’t suffer just because their parents have to separate. Your kids deserve to grow up into normal, productive adults. Let me guide you through the details.

Come meet with us to discuss your rights and options. We will review your current situation, gather evidence, develop a legal strategy, and advise you of the best course of action. The goal of my legal service is to create the best and most stable arrangement for your children to prosper.

The Children's Best Interest

Louisiana’s Civil Code is abundantly clear that the law is only concerned with the best interests of the child. There are several factors listed by the Civil Code to instruct a judge how to decide where a child should primarily live and how often they should visit the other parent.

Shared custody works in some cases. Joint custody works in others. Routine visitation is typically best. But sometimes supervised or limited visitation is required. Whatever the circumstances, we fight for your children’s best interests.

Seeking the Truth

The old adage is unfortunately correct: the truth is only what we can prove in court. This is no simple matter. He-said-she-said doesn’t count. If your ex intends to defame or discredit you, we have to organize the proper evidence and witnesses to prove the truth. If your ex has substance abuse problems, anger issues, or is otherwise unfit, we have to prove it. An experienced, crafty lawyer will make all of the difference.
